Honey Spice Bread

"'The texture of this moist bread is almost like a cake, so I usually serve slices of it for dessert,' comments Gaye O'Dell of Binghamton, New York. 'Plus, the loaf looks so festive with the pretty glaze drizzled on top.'"

  1. In a saucepan over low heat, cook and stir brown sugar and milk for 5 minutes or until sugar is dissolved. Remove from the heat. In a large bowl, combine dry ingredients. In another bowl, combine the eggs, honey, oil and brown sugar mixture; mix well. Stir into dry ingredients until moistened. Pour into a greased 8-in. x 4-in. x 2-in. loaf pan.
  2. Bake at 350 degrees F for 55-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean (cover with foil of top browns too quickly). Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack to cool completely. Combine glaze ingredients until smooth; drizzle over bread.

Really, truly fantastic. Very fall-ish. A keeper.

Too dry and not very flavorful, even though I used rounded half teaspoons of the spices.
