Cantaloupe Bread with Praline Glaze

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2013
Quite disappointed.I was excited to try this and followed the recipe exactly, figuring I wanted to first start from there to determine if I liked it and then determine how I might or might not want to modify it. Now that I've made it I don't think it's worth modifying because I have so many really good recipes for other breads that it seemed silly to work on modifying this one to make it taste like one of the great ones I already have! On the plus side, this bread has a very nice texture and is very moist. The problem is that it is very nondescript -- it has no real "character"of its own. Some reviews said it tastes like banana or pumpkin bread -- not so! Those breads are amazing and each has a unique character of its own. But this bread offers nothing special. It IS good for using up cantaloupe, but then we don't need this recipe to accomplish that, since cantaloupe can be used in the same way as applesauce in a wide variety of breads. Sorry, but this one's not a keeper.
