"I found this vintage recipe on the Internet while looking for unique recipes to submit for the Zaar World Tour. It comes from the recipe files of Margaret Dens Buytaert, a Belgain who resided in Wisconsin. The idea of coffee as the liquid in this quick bread intrigues me. Sorry that I will not have a chance to prepare it for a while. If you try it, please share your reactions."

"This came out really great, nice flavor. Thank you. ZWT 4 Family Pick"
"i love the very peculiar flavour given to it by the coffee and the cinnamon. you can also try it replacing the cloves with ground ginger, it'll make it taste more delicate."
"Great flavor and texture! This took about 50min to cook all the way through, so my ends got a little darker then I would have liked. I am going to try a round cake pan next time and see if that helps any."
"Great taste, somewhere between coffee and spice, not too sweet. Also not terribly tender (can hold up to butter!). I used spray oil to grease the pans - no fiddling with parchment - and had no problem with releasing them. After reading the other reviews, I divided the batter between two mini-loaf pans and one regular 8x4 loaf pan. The small ones I cooked for 30 minutes, and the bigger one for 40 minutes. Also used cooled coffee - don't know if this made any difference."
"This was exceedingly good. I like my coffee fairly strong and therefore the coffee taste really came through and blended well with the spices."
"I also had a problem cooking this all the way though.. I even cooked it for an extra 10 minutes and a skewer poked into the centre came out clean, so I was doumbfounded when I took it to work the next morning to have at morning tea and the middle was totally liquid in places. That said, every last crumb that WAS cooked dissapeared and there was praise all round for the taste. I'm on an elimination diet for allergies and am not allowed flour etc so couldn't sample this myself, but 15 colleagues can't be wrong :) several colleagues said I could stay on my special diet and bring them baking all the time LOL. Please see my rating system: this might become a 5 star recipe in the future if I can figure out how to get the inside cooked correctly, without drying out the rest too much, for taste, in it's present state, a lovely 4 stars. Thanks !"
"What a really nice bread to serve with our breakfast. I don't normally make coffee, so the coffee I added per my neighbor who drank a cup was extremely hair raising strong...lol. Still I liked the flavor of this bread, the ease of making it, and will use this recipe again. Thank You for sharing it."
"This was very good. The coffee added a very nice flavor and color to the bread, although we drink our coffee kinda weak, so it is not as dark as the photo shown. The texture was perfect. I took mine about 45-50 minutes to cook and there was still one area that didn't get done, but it was good anyway. thanks."
"Very good. Although it took me about 50 minutes to cook it."
"Wonderful bread! Great flavor! It did take about 20 minutes longer to cook then stated so I covered it with foil and let it continue. Wonderful bread smeared with butter for breakfast!!! We will make this one again!"
"mine took a little longer to cook . we liked this thanks for posting .dee"
"Very good! I loved it with powdered sugar on it! Took way longer than posted time to cook all the way through, tho. "
"Made this back around Christmas, for a friend's party. While it wasn't the most popular dish there (little can truly beat good chocolate chip cookies, sadly), everyone who tried it loved it. This is fantastic a couple days later, toasted -- the sweet-coffee taste really comes out. Yum!"
"I made the recipe exactly as written. It reminded me of Dutch ontbijt koek, a childhood favorite to have for breakfast. I hadn't found a better recipe for that yet - maybe because the secret ingredient is coffee! We enjoyed it a lot. Thanks so much for sharing."
"This was good. The coffee added a nice rich color to it.I loved the spices. I did add some vanilla and butter flavoring. I think i would add some mashed banana next time, just to see. Thanks!"
