Just made this bread this morning to try, its a lovely bread! Very quick to make up and uses ingredients I'd normally have on hand. I did add the brown sugar as I thought I'd want more sweetness than the 1/2 cup of honey would give it and was omitting the glaze on top. The sweetness was good but may decrease the brown sugar a bit next time. Also increased the spices a bit and also added some nutmeg and cardamom as well, as I like a stronger taste but that is just personal preference. All in all, very good and will definitely make it again to have with my evening cuppa! Thank you for a lovely easy recipe. PS I baked for the 50mins and bottom was a bit overdone, but I will blame the oven as I have a new stove, much different from my old one and still getting used to how it bakes lol! Will check it before 50mins next time!
