My mom made this every fall, it is nice and dense and the taste is wonderful. Best of all I've never had it turn out wrong!

Very moist and flavorful. I cut recipe down to 1 loaf and only used 1 cup of the sugar. Still plenty sweet. I subbed dried cranberries for the raisins (we don't like them). Spices were just right.
