I made this today and found that the cooking time was less than needed. I actually need 70 min for it to be done on the inside but it was slightly burnt on the edges. The icing just melted into the loaf but that didn't matter. Overall a wonderful tasting recipe! Bringing it to work tomorrow!

I just made this bread and it was amazing!!! I followed the recipe to the T but I also added raisins. The cook time was closer to 70 minutes (I used a dark loaf pan). This is my new go-to recipe.

I made this yesterday. I made a little change and added some chopped pecans to the sugar/cinnamon mixture. I gave the bread away, so I didn't get to taste it. I was told that it was delicious. :) Thank you for posting this recipe!
