The Taste of Fall

Wonderful!! Very moist, not crumbly or cake like at all. The perfect balance of spices come together to make the taste of fall. I added candied walnuts to the top before baking making it even more wonderful. Pure pleasure to enjoy.

I made this for work, just so I could have some but not eat all the bread myself. Everyone loved it, they could not tell it was good for them.
