These were good-smelled fantastic! I would definately decrease the amt. of spices, we found the spices were too pronounced, overpowering, one in particular was the rosemary.
Made this for my b-day a few days ago and I was very impressed. The only thing I changed was to use my own bread dough instead of the frozen loaf, but I know the frozen dough would have been good too. This recipe is REALLY good and went over very well with everyone at the party. I will definitely be making this again. BTW, I made this is a bundt pan.
What do YOU do with the extra 1/2 loaf of dough? I have a large bunt pan, so I increased the ingredients by just a bit and used a full 2 loaves of frozen dough. If you don't have the larger pan, you can always put the extra in a smaller pan and bake separately.
