Iused butter instead of shortening, and I replaced 1 cup of sugar with 3/4 cup of raw honey, adding about 1/4 tsp. of baking soda to complement that. I used 1/3-1/2 as much cloves, as that's what I had, and added a couple of dashes of nutmeg. Next time I'll probably spice it up more, as the flavor was quite mild, but still it's really yummy. I don't doubt it would have been just as good without any changes. Maybe it was just luck, but this bread came out as well as any quick bread I've ever made: really moist, but totally cooked through even in the center and not too tough or crusty on the edges -- not too easy a feat for me!
