YUM, YUM, YUM!!!! This bread is terrific! It has a wonderful light and fluffy texture and a very yummy cinnamon apple raisin taste. All the ingredients go so well together and make for a real winner! The recipe is also very easy and quick to put together. I made half the recipe and decided to bake it in muffin molds, so that I ended up with ten nicely sized muffins. I made two changes: Instead of nuts I used sunflower seeds and reduced the sugar to 2 tbs. That way the bread had a nice and fruity sweetness. Thanks so so much for sharing this lovely recipe with us, Annacia! I cant wait to make it again! :) Made and reviewed for Went to the Market Tag Game June 09.
