I have This recipe from my nana aswell. It is slightly different in that we only use almond extract and substitute sliced almonds for walnuts. We also use whole wheat flower. I have people begging me for this bread evrytime they come over. The secret to keeping it moist is in the mixing. My mixer is never off from the minute the 1st ingredient goes in the bowl to the last
