    The recipe is excellent. It reminds me a lot of the christmas panettone but it's SO MUCH tastier. I just substituted the eggs with more milk and added more almonds and sultanas and it's fantastic  -  05 Nov 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    You MUST double the liquids if you want anything that resembles a bread dough! It tasted good and had nice texture and smelled so good baking.  -  22 Jan 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I added chopped apples instead of the nuts when I made this, but I added too much extra liquids and flour when I was trying to make the dough in the bread machine and it overflowed a bit and the top didn't bake well. I left it in the bread machine for an extra half hour to let it cook a little more after the cycle was over, but it came out great. Made a lemon orange dipping sauce for it and it was a hit.  -  11 Jun 2017  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
