    I agree, it was great in my lunch box although too crumbly to eat right out of the oven  -  23 Apr 2012


    Hubby liked it in his lunch box as stayed quite moist.  -  15 Mar 2011


    A Enjoyed this bread very much. It had great flavor. I made it exactly as the recipe called for. The only thing I'll do differently next time is add more apricots. And thats only because I prefer more fruit in my fruit breads.  -  15 Jan 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
