I went home with a friend in college around Christmas time and his mother was making this - it smells SO good when baking, and tastes even better! Definitely NOT low-fat... You can make it whatever size you want - muffins, small loaves, etc...anything works! Just make sure you reduce the baking time for smaller portions. They're great for holiday gifts for neighbors, co-workers, etc.!

These were delicious! We made muffins and the flavor was perfect. Thanks for a great recipe, we'll be making these again!

This was so good. My husband has requested it weekly :). Next time will be adding extra spices.

This recipe is so easy and tastes great. The bread has a nice light texture. I changed the spices to my taste, using pumpkin pie spice and extra nutmeg, and it was awesome.
