This was a good quick bread recipe. I did add more raisins because It makes for better bread in my opinion. This is good to have on hand for breakfast.

We really liked this bread but not the hard crust on top formed by the cinnamon sugar. I will continue to make this, but only put the cinnamon swirl inside.

I agree with one of the other reviewers. It was just ok, nothing special. It was missing the wow factor. It was quite easy to make but if I make again, I might try brown sugar and more raisins with a pinch of nutmeg to give it a less of a refined sugar taste.

Very easy to make. I made a lemon glaze with lemon zest poured over it. It was delicious! My family loved it! A Henry Cleveland Ohio.

This bread was o.k. I omitted the raisins. I felt it was missing a wow factor. It wasn't bad just o.k. Maybe some sour cream added to the wet ingredients would help.

Cut the ingredients in half except for the cinnamon and sugar that you add to the middle and top. Only wanted one loaf. It was great.
