made the mini loafs wrapped for holiday gifts and they where a great hit, everyone loved the idea. quick an easy to make very moist. I plan on doing the same again this year
Was just okay... quite acceptable soon after baking, but rather dry. After being held for a few days, bottom half of loaf was quite dry, eve though wrapped airtight. Top half with glaze was yummy. AM going to try again but tweak the recipe somewhat, maybe 1/2 brown sugar and an extra egg yolk... not sure yet. worth working on though, which is why I gave it 3 stars.
This recipe is amazing! It was so easy to make and delicious. I gave out mini loaves as appreciation to some colleagues today for Thanksgiving. I think they will enjoy the bread as much as I did!
Oh my goodness! I LOVE this bread! It is wonderful!
Really like this quick bread variation!!!
I found this recipe a few years back and I have made it for Thanksgiving ever since. My mother-in-law adores it and that says something! Easy to prepare but it looks and tastes like you labored for a long time. It is a keeper for sure
This is a huge crowd pleaser in my family. I normally make it on Thanksgiving and I have to make double so everyone has a mini one to take home! I love how easy it is and yet how impressive it tastes! It smells like fall in my house today as I bake a loaf for my visiting in laws!
This is one of the good ones. I have had so many requests for this one. A great take along for a hostess gift.
Great recipe, very flavorful, moist, delicious. I would give it as a gift it is so good. Note: the flour quantity is divided use.
This is a really keeper. Made it for my daughter's office and they loved it and wanted the recipe.
I made this for a local Women's Club bake sale and before I even got them to the table they were sold! Afterwards, I got requests for the recipe. Looks beautiful and tastes great. This one's a winner.
The brown sugar wouldn't disolve completely so the glaze was not as smooth as I wanted it. I'll try a different glaze next time

We’re entering a new phase in our life as new parents – the dinnertime meltdown stage (or the “witching hour” as I like to call it). We rush home from daycare, singing “Wheels on the Bus” as many times as it takes to keep him entertained on the 10-minute car ride. It’s the same song and dance when we get home, while his daddy finishes up work and I’m hectically trying to empty the dishwasher, make dinner and keep our little guy from hiding the dog food between the couch cushions.
