"Very, very good. I cut the nutmeg to 1 tsp and added a slight amount of ginger. I also cut the sugar down to 2 cups and added chopped pecans. This bread is delicious. I will definitely make this again."

"easy to make and tastes yummy, but I would decrease the sugar content next time. The bread is a little too sweet for me, but I would definitely bake this again."
