Top Review by Crafty Lady 13

I followed the recipe exactly as written and was rewarded with a wonderfully soft, moist cake-like bread. The recipe was so easy to whip together and the aroma while it was cooking in the oven was scrumptious. I sliced up the bread and then cut each slice in half because I was taking this to work and wanted to make sure that everyone was able to try some. This dish was a hit with everyone. I will definitely be making this often. Thanks for sharing a wonderful recipe. Made for October, 2008 Aussie/NZ Swap.
