We just got done making 36 mini loaves of this for a school fund-raiser. What great bread! Very very easy and absolutely delicious. This was our second most requested bread, cranberry-orange (Cranberry-Orange Quick Bread) being the first. We didn't change a thing and the loaves were perfect! The above recipe makes 6 mini loaves.
I can't rate the taste yet since I sent it to my nephew in a care package. The recipe came together quickly and baked up nice and high. I know I'll be trying it for my family soon.
Very tasty. I baked the loaf for 70 minutes and it came out perfect. It had a nice crust and soft interior, and wasn't too sweet. Great for dessert and breakfast. I liked it best served hot, spread with butter. I think it would also be great as muffins. Thanks for sharing.
