Top Review by Chef Dudo

Yes, the kitchen smells nice. Yes, it's a great loaf to make. It turned out perfect and tasted even better! I used dried cranberries and will try it with raisins next time. It probably would be nice with other fresh or dried fruit too. A very versatile recipe. Made only one little change from the directions. Did not grease my loaf pan but put in parchment paper instead. Easy to lift out the cake after baking and easy to peel off, just a personal (lazy) preference. This is very much a keeper. Thanks for posting.
