    I had some heavy cream to use up from another recipe and I came across this recipe and decided to try it out. This bread is delicious!!! We were going to make one of the loaves to freeze, but it never made it to the freezer. The recipe was fairly easy and I thought that the flavor combination would make this more of a fall type bread, but it had a nice vanilla-spice flavor. We will be enjoying this again soon!!!
