packed brown sugar
1 2/3 cups
whole wheat flour
blanched slivered almonds
My husband and kids loved this bread! I substituted applesauce for the butter and egg beaters for the eggs, it was just delicious! I also cooked it in two loaf pans, so I'd be able to share!
I followed this recipe completely, except no orange liqueur available to use. Prepped the pan, but the cake baked unevenly (dry on outside, still uncooked inside), and it fell apart when I tried to remove it from the pan. Flavor just okay. The raisins and nuts did not help the flavor. What did I do wrong???
We weren't sure to use dark or light brown sugar. We chose light and it turned out great! We put a bit of whipping cream on when we served it.
Spactacular recipe! I didn't change anything except for not adding the almonds. This tastes excellent just the way it is. I took it to my son's preschool for a special snack and it was loved! I am making it again for Christmas right now. Only note I have to leave is that I used loaf pans and it definitely makes more than two! It overflowed all over, so now I am making it into four loaves, two cups of batter each. We'll see how it turns out!
One word, delicious! I really like spicy cakes like this one!
This is delicous! Beware that the batter makes very big loaves; I split it into two pans.
My kids could not get enough!!! Thank you for sharing. Don't open the door (or in my case don't let the kids roam the kitchen) of the oven before it's done, otherwise it goes down just like a cake.
I made this for friends and family last Christmas (2002) and rave reviews wer returned. This tasty bread does not last for long!!!
