    After reading all the other reviews & the problem with getting this loaf done inside before the outside got black, I decided (as a temporary fix) to make this in an 8-inch loaf pan & use the rest of the batter for a couple of small loaves, baked accordingly! I included raisins & nuts here & all those great spices as listed! Had a great tasting loaf &, as with others, look to making this again during the fall/winter holidays! Thanks for a great bread!

    Like another reviewer, had to bake longer than suggested, which produced hard, brown edges, but a done center. The bread itself was tasty though.

    Well I LOVED this bread! I am a huge fan of anything with all those wonderful spices so I added a bit more nutmeg and cinnamon to the recipe since they are favorites but followed the recipe exactly with the dried cranberries and chopped almonds added to the bread. Now I just need to find a candle that smells just like this bread until I make it again so my house will smell so nice all the time! Thanks for posting!

    I made this without any raisins or nuts to fit current needs. It's really lovely, think applesauce gingerbread and you've pretty much got it. It's dense and moist but not over-so. I used 1/4 cup sugar and 3/4 cup Splenda. It certainly spreads a lovely aroma as it bakes. This will be a repeat (I'll add nuts next time) and I'm already thinking how perfect it will be in the fall and for the holidays. Made for ZWT.
