    Something else. This bread was wonderful! After greasing the tin, I sprinkled cinnamon and sugar in the tin to give the crust a sweet crunch. I sprinkled some extra chopped walnuts and some demerara sugar on top before baking, and it really does look like a picture! Tastes great and a beautiful holiday bread. Takes no time to make too!  -  24 Jul 2008
