My dad was Canadian, but had a very British upbringing. And, boy, did he love his marmalade! I know it's an acquired taste for some, but when I baked the jam into this nutty bread, everyone loved it—even my kids. —Nancy Heishman, Las Vegas, Nevada

"This bread tastes awesome and is so easy. I am going to make several loaves to give as Christmas gifts. I had to bake mine about ten minutes longer than the recipe specified."
