Used different ingredients. This was a great bread. It was very moist but not too sweet. I substituted currents for the sultanas, they worked very well. - 18 Jul 2008


Something else. I did this in mini loaves and used in a Christmas hamper of four breads. I'm getting orders from my friends for a whole loaf. They love it. - 18 Jul 2008
