“From Ocean Spray flyer. It has been a many years since I've made this bread but my notes say it is yummy! My notes also say I added a 1/4 cup of chopped almonds to the batter and then used another 1/4 cup of sliced/slivered almonds for the topping. So I've adjusted the original to include this but feel free to leave the chopped almonds out of the batter itself. **Updated 12/7/11 - I've adjusted the bake time for this bread. The original times were definitely too long for this quick bread **”
