Everyone who tries this loves it. I like to make muffins instead. If you make loaves be careful not to over cook, with the molasses this can pick up a burnt taste.

This bread is absolutely delicious and tasted exactly like Mimi's Cafe. I used 4 mini loaf pans so I did not have the fall in the middle problem. I also did not grease my pans like the recipe stated, but I took them out of the pan immediately while still hot. Had to wedge them out just a little with a knife, but they taste better cooked without greasing the pans.
