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.

replaced the water with brandy, used yogurt and canola oil in place of the shortening, added chocolate chips, and used all whole wheat flour and it is sublime! Thank you! I will definitely be making this again!
