Wonderful Fall Taste

A taste of Fall, no matter what the season is. Moist and mildly spicy loaves are easy to transport and a sure hit at any holiday get-together. Add a teaspoon of vanilla for an extra richness.

This reminded me of Fall and not wanting to wait until my Mom's fresh baked Nut Bread would come out of the oven.

Moist, Tasty, & Beautiful

This made a nice loaf. My family loved it, and I will make 2 next time! I didn't have pumpkin pie spice, and used 1 tsp. cinnamon, 1 tsp allspice, & 1 tsp nutmeg in it's place. Next time I will omit the allspice - I think it made it a little too spicey for my taste, but no one else seemed to notice.

The recipe instructions were very easy to follow. The loaf turned out very well. I made two loaves and on the second I put the nuts in the mix instead of on top. It was a different taste from the first. I really enjoyed making them and my family and I enjoyed eating them.
