This is a lovely snack cake. I made half of the recipe in a regular loaf pan, and the other half I divided between 4 mini loaf pans. I really liked the flavor, and the house smelled heavenly while these were baking! Next time I will add a bit more vanilla and cinnamon, and I might try adding dried cranberries. Thanks for posting a wonderful treat!
