This bread was delicious and easy. I added a few ingredients like chopped nuts and a spiced glaze to make it even more special. The only "problem" I had with it was the lack of instructions on oven temperature (I followed another recipe & baked it at 350). Overall a great bread that I'm planning on serving at my Thanksgiving table! Read More

I was excited to try this recipe because the reviews were so good. But I guess because of that my expectations were really high. I followed the recipe exactly but found the bread to be bland and sort of mealy. It was slightly better the second day but still not what I'd anticipated. Read More

Very good. I used applesauce instead of oil and I added a 1/4 tsp of cinnamon. I might add a little bit more of each spice next time. Read More

I decided to try this recipe because it doesn't have as much sugar as many of the recipes I looked at. It turned out great and has wonderful texture. I did use white wheat instead of whole wheat and I did not have brown sugar but used sugar in the raw. It was very easy and I will be making it again! Read More

excellent recipe- but made a few basic changes: double allspice and nutmeg to 1/2 tsp total add 1/2 tsp cinnamon add 1/4 tsp ginger (fresh grated) add 1 tsp vanilla extract reduce orange juice 1 tsp (due to vanilla) Bake at 325. If you want to swap applesauce for vegetable oil - serve warm bread with apple butter! Read More

Good but just a basic quick bread. I didn't taste anything that set it apart for me. I did add cinamon and cloves bc I like spicey breads. I did taste the spices but it still seemed to be missing something. Maybe cranberries? I didn't taste the orange flavor at all so I'd suggest more orange juice and/or orange zest to kick it up a knotch. Thanks for the recipe! Read More
