    This is without a doubt one of the best recipes I have found on the 'net! It is so simple to make, which on a scale of one to ten, gets an 11 rating from me. I like recipes that are simple and easy. My compliments to the chef!  -  25 Dec 2000  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This bread is fabulous! Everyone loves it and is asking for me to make it again. I was looking for a mincemeat recipe because my mom loves it and nobody else does... well that was before they tasted this bread. I made it in mini loaves and gave out for gifts. I put it at the top of my favorites list!  -  02 Dec 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This recipe is everything you will want it to be, very good and easy. The dough looked very dry for a loaf - I used a jar of mincemeat which was less moist than normal, I think - but it baked up just right in an hour. Good with margarine or on its own because the chunks of mincemeat add moistness. Try it, it's so easy!  -  07 Feb 2004  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
