Mmmm, is right! I didn't get a swirl effect, but I sure did get a moist, sweet bread that's full of flavor in every bite. We really enjoyed this. Thanks so much! Fall PAC '08.
Great Bread. I did alter the recipe, but it was still delicious. I added a cup ful of heritage granola and a chopped up red delicious apple and folded it in. I also used whole wheat flour instead of all purpose flour.Therefore, I thought it would be best to add more baking powder.(?)Luckliy it worked out for the best:)I also switched most of the brown sugar for agave except for the sprinkle in the middle. I hope you don't mind. I am constantly trying to find the healthiest route to the best tasting recipe.
