Very Greek and extremely bready. If you like bread and you like Greek things, this is for you. Maybe.

Very good. I did increase the walnuts and raisins a bit. The bread itself is hard to describe. I want to say "light", but not light in the way that white bread is light. Anyway, not heavy, very nicely textured. This is definitely not sweet. Best toasted with a little jam, perhaps. I might slightly decrease the cardamom next time, but will be making this instead of raisin bread made with white bread dough.

Very like brioche, with a warm cardamom flavor that's fantastic with coffee. Once it begins to stale, it's delicious toasted. Like all your recipes, this one is so good that I'm convinced you're a professional!
