    Heartspell's Note:

    My family absolutely loves when I make this! It looks complicated, but it's really not. I got this out of a Paula Deen magazine. Just a few hints...I use flexible cookware when I bake and the first time I made this I had to use 3 regular sized loaf pans. The next time I used two flexible bunt pans it turned out great! I couldn't find one on here that used brown sugar in place of white. So I thought I would share this one. I don't know how many servings this makes, all I know is that it will feed my brood and then some. **Note: I have substituted Splenda Brown Sugar and light sour cream as well; it still turns out fantastic! Please let me know what you think!

      We loved the soft, delicate texture of this bread brought about by the use of sour cream and baking soda for rising. I followed all ingredients except for the nuts and chocolate chips, personal preference. I loved the use of brown sugar instead of white. Made for Pick A Chef, October 2008.
