    This is the GREAT quick bread recipe! I changed one thing only -- I used a Spice Cake Mix. Between the tastey topping and cinnoman it did not taste like it started with a cake mix.

    I would rate this *10* if there were stars enough. Luscious, and so easy to make. I've been retired 5 years now, and have nade this bread too many times to count. Continues to be one of our family's favorites. Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful, wonderful delight. Sincerely, Jos

    This bread has good flavor but we could definitely tell that it started from a box cake mix. It had that commercial cake mix taste to it. It also has a much lighter texture and comes off as being more of a cake than a bread.

    I lighten this awesome recipe up a bit by using nonfat yogurt instead of sour cream. Can't even tell the difference. Thanksgiving standby!
