This recipe was unfortunately a big letdown. I followed the directions to the letter- well, okay, I added a bit more cinnamon ;o) - using tools and household appliances that are in top shape. The house filled with a wonderful baking aroma while this wonderful stuff underwent its (supposed) metamorphosis. I removed the loaf from the oven and discovered that while the top was a rich brown, the middle was still a thick pasty dough. I put the loaf back in for another 10 minutes. It was a bit darker on top and still somewhat doughy in the middle. 10 more minutes in the oven. Now the edges had carbonized, but the toothpicks *seemed* to come out clean. After letting the loaf cool, the middle of the top had sunk. The center was sticky and wet- essentially heated dough. I carved off what I could salvage. A lesser woman would be crying. I'm just bummed I wasted my resources. I will say that what DID bake in 80 minutes is good...

This bread was just excellent! As I write this we've already gobbled up one loaf and can't wait to have the other with breakfast tomorrow. This turned out very moist and yummy. I assed the 1/2 cup of water to the batter and had to use a mix of pecans and walnuts, as I didn't have enough of either one. Thanks so much. Made this for ZWT4 for the Chic Chefs.

Really really enjoyed this recipe. Even the kids liked it. I didn't exactly have 1/2 cup avocado and the dough was dry so I added some milk to make it wetter and it turned out great!
