Not the prettiest bread I ever made, but it sure does taste good! The topping sort of sinks into the bread making it look like it has little craters, or kind of a pebbly looking top. And it slices a little crumbly, althoughI barely waited until it was cooled, let alone chilled. I substituted a cup of buttermilk for the milk and lemon juice and kind of wish I would have left out the nuts as their presence was a little too prominent for me. So why the three stars and not higher? The baking time is WAY off, and frankly, with nearly 200 reviews, I'm surprised no one else has commented on this. Forty minutes? No way. I baked this in a Pyrex 8x4" loaf pan at 325 degrees, for about 55-60 minutes, which is fairly typical for most quick breads.
