Easy and very moist. I took it to work and it was gone in a flash! The house smelled so good while it was baking.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 27, 2011

This is not "low sodium" as claimed--the baking soda, powder,& salt equal 212.5 gms per slice, not counting any sodium from other ingredients. Be careful!
