Delicious...I cooked in a 10" bundt pan and that worked well! This is a nice alternative to cake.

This was excellent, made it for brunch and it was praised a lot. Now, I tinkered a lot with the recipe as I did not have time to choose something else for the meal and was out of ingredients,YE...

I really disliked the texture of this bread. And the egg taste was very strong. Everyone in my family felt the same.

This bread tasted just like sponge cake.
