This bread is delicious and so easy to throw together. I omitted the raisins and added chopped pecans. For new recipes, I like to set my oven timer for a lesser time than given. I found that this was done in 55 minutes. Next time I will cut back to 50 minutes and check till done.

This is delicious, flavorful and so pretty. The only change I made was to omit the raisins and add some chopped pecans instead. I will definitely make these during the holidays as food gifts.
