Great recipe. Just like my Mom use to make. I added raisins.

Excellent recipe! My husband and all of my co-workers love it. Only thing is that it does not cook in 1 hour. I've made this recipe 3 times now, and it always takes about 1 hr. and 45 minutes--and I use 2 loaf pans.

This bread is absolutely delicious. I even substituted splenda for half the sugar and it turned out wonderfully. It has somewhat of the same consistency of cornbread, but it tastes twenty times better. Thank you for a lovely recipe!
