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.
This was super easy to do; quick .. and delicious. The texture and flavor were jusr right. I followed the recipe exactly -- with the exception of cooking time. It took about 50 minutes in my oven at 350 deg. However, well worth the wait! I will make this often. :)
