I made this bread yesterday and found it to be more like a loaf pound cake. The flavor was good but the texture was very dense. I prefer something a little lighter for a sweet bread

One of my PAC picks Spring 2007 OH yum! Had no evaporated milk on hand so substituted with half-n-half and the lemon glaze just brought it over the top; it was a pure pleasure to eat! Oh yeah, it's a keeper.

Is this a bread or is this a cake? This is one recipe you DEFINATELY want to make! Had my reservations about batter too, Good things come to those who wait, TRUE! Coated loaf pan with oil spray so wouldn't stick, Am SO glad this is one of the recipes I did pick! Browned nicely on top before its time, true! Not to worry...put aluminum foil loosely on top too! Glaze was terrific, the cake made my day, HOPE you'll try it cos it's more than O.K. :)
