Recipe by Charmed

This is an excellent, delectable loaf cake with a delicate flavor and a wonderful texture. It's perfect when you want something easy, fast, and you happen to be low on ingredients. I doubt you'd have any complaints with this one.

I've made this loaf several times and have been very happy with it. It's very easy to make and the texture and flavour are exactly what I'm looking for. As 'Rickie' said, the baking time was 50 min. and not the 30 min. mentioned in the recipe. Thank you 'Charmed'. It's a keeper.
