Wow, I loved this bread, what a taste treat, this was simply fabulous. I only made 1/2 the recipe, now I'm kicking myself, wishing I would have made the whole recipe. Either way, It worked very well. The bread was very easy to make. I put the batter into the fridge for 24 hours and baked it for 2 hours. This bread is so good, with a nice texture, it made a dense, flavourful bread, with a lovely combination of spices, clove, cinnamon, aniseed and orange, they blended perfectly...Yummy I will definitely be making this again, often, into my keeper box it goes. Thanks so much for sharing Rita L.
