    Nice looking, moist loaf. However, ginger a little overbearing. Probably wouldn't make again.  -  14 Oct 2014


    This was just gorgeous..everyone loved it and it was easy to make.  -  22 Aug 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I just enjoyed one of the most delicious pieces of toast I've ever had. The ginger and lemon were subtle but really added something special. I heeded the comment of another reviewer who wanted more lemon flavor, so I added a few drops of lemon oil. Otherwise, I followed the recipe, using the dough setting on my bread machine, and adding the crystallized ginger early in the first kneading process. Can't wait to try a PB&J on this yummy bread.  -  29 May 2014  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
