“This is just terrific- everyone who has tried it has just raved! There's something about the spice combination that makes this bread unlike any other I've tried. This is my husband's absolute fall favorite. It freezes well, too, if you happen to be able to snatch one of the loaves from the folks eating it. The recipe originally came from a friend, Barbie, who died much too young. I think of her each time I make it.”

  4. Line two bread pans with foil and oil the foil.
  5. Divide the batter between the pans and smooth the tops.

  7. Test for doneness with a wooden pick.
