This bread was very moist and easy to make. I will make it again but will add a little more of the spices than is called for. I

Very moist. Easy to whip together and it was done in no time flat. When I took this out of the oven, I had to cut me a piece and put butter on it.. It was very good. I will be making these again.. What a great recipe.
