Of all the breads I make, this is always a favorite that I include in my Christmas goodie baskets. I don't usually make regular size loaves, I make mini loaves. The recipe is the same, baking time is usually around 35-45 minutes.

I made 2 8x4 loaves using Splenda for the sugar and 2 whole eggs + 1/2 cup of egg whites. I also trimmed the amount of walnuts. One loaf I put in the freezer and the other I sampled with gingerbread spice tea. So nice!, I'm thinking about making a big bundt loaf next Fall/Winter. This has very nice flavor and texture. made for Pic A Chef, Spring 2013 round.
