  • Very Good
    This is one of my all-time favorite recipes. I have put every fruit I like and every nut I like into this bread at one time or another. It is always good no matter what I use. I've added zuchinni and pumpkin to the mix. It is a very versatile bread. And it freezes well . - 3/21/10
