Delicious! I didn't make a sandwich, but rather used this as a spread on toasted cinnamon raisin bagels. Like another reviewer I tried it with both Land O Lakes lite butter and reduced fat cream cheese - both were really good! Read More

HUGE hit with the family. I didn't have raisin bread, I had regular Sara Lee whole wheat bread. I grilled them in my greased cast iron skillet which I think made them even awesomer, if that's even a word. My eldest boy ate two and asked for a third! Read More

made this twice, second time used cream cheese instead of butter, delicious both ways! Not as overly sweet as you would think from reading the recipe. My kids loved it as a snack after gymnastics. Read More

We just had these for breakfast a couple of minutes ago and they got a 5 star response from my family. So warm and yummy. I had to use grape jelly, but next time I will use apricot. Thanks for the recipe!! This one will be used a lot in our household!!!! Read More

This is so easy and makes a nice presentation. I certainly could see serving this for brunch for family or friends, maybe cutting into quarters. I sprayed the outside of the bread with ICBINB, and it browned up nicely. What makes this special IMO is using the raisin cinnamon bread. Followed the recipe exactly and garnished with a little bit of toasted coconut. Thanks Gloria for a yummy Sunday breakfast. Read More

I really enjoyed this recipe. Quick to make, and great taste. You don't need to put alot of the jam mixture on the bread. It is best with Raisin bread, but, I'm sure it would be good with white or wheat. Try it--you'll like it. Read More

Absolutely delicious! This was very sweet and tangy with the apricot. Perfect for summer as it is tropical in flavor. You could leave the coconut out or sub cream cheese if you don't like/want/have it. I sprinkled this with some powdered sugar because it sounded good. Not just for breakfast, this could be a great after school treat, dessert, brunch, or midnight snack. Thanks Gloria, this is a fantastic recipe! Read More

Before trying this recipe, I thought that mixing apricot jam with cinnamon would be very weird. But it's absolutely delish! Read More

I made mine in a panini press, it didn't end up very crispy and sandwich like, more stuffed french toast like. It tasted pretty good, not sure that the coconut added much, but then coconut isn't my favorite flavor. Read More
