An easy and spicy bread. Great with a little butter on it.

Top Review by NorthwestGal

Wonderful quick bread recipe. In particular, I really loved the spices in it (though I will probably double the cinnamon and nutmeg since I really, really like that combination in this bread recipe). But the bread was quite moist and flavorful, and everyone really enjoyed it. Thanks for sharing your recipe, Dessertcher.
