DELICIOUS. Sweet, spicy, rich... delicious. I added about 1/4 tsp of ginger, and it could have used more. I used pecans because I don't care for walnuts. I made one loaf, six double-sized muffins, a dozen mini-muffins, and still had some batter left over. ADDENDUM: Made it again, this time with 1/2 tsp ground ginger and 1/2 tsp grated fresh ginger. Also overestimated on the lemon zest, wound up with about a full teaspoon. Made almost exactly 6 lbs of batter; divided into 3 loaf pans each 8x4x3.
