    Absolutely lovely loaf. The smells are amazing and the bread tastes like hot cross buns. Couldn't stop eating it - in fact I've just eaten 3 slices on the trot smothered in butter. Even better toasted!!!!!!!! Yummy!!  -  03 Oct 2014


    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 US | 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 US | Canada)
