"This is a recipe from my Polish grandmother. It is a semi-sweet bread that tastes wonderful with a little butter. I grew up on this stuff and it has always been one of my favorites."

  1. In a large bowl, mix the sugar, cinnamon, cloves, allspice, and eggs. Stir in the milk and oil, and mix in the baking soda. Place honey in a small pot, and bring to a boil. Stir honey into the bowl. Mix flour into the bowl. Fold in the raisins and walnuts. Stir by hand with a sturdy spoon for 10 minutes. Allow the dough to sit 1 hour.
  2. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Lightly grease four 8x4 inch loaf pans.
  3. Fill each loaf pan with about 2 inches of the batter. Bake 1 hour 15 minutes in the preheated oven, until a toothpick inserted in the center of a loaf comes out clean. Bread will be brown in color and will crack on top.

I served this to my Polish friends, and they loved it, and said it was like the piernik in Poland. I did make some changes. I followed the advice and added 1/2 tsp of baking powder and I did not...

We loved this bread - a wonderful surprise taste of honey lingering in your mouth - I added apricots and it worked well at a church breakfast

I love the taste of the honey, nuts and rasins. I eat it with peanut butter for dinner.

This recipe was great!!!! I omitted the raisins, just because I'm not a fan. I'm glad I added walnuts though because they added some texture and flavor. I love the spices in this bread! I th...

I grew up eating this as a child and was excited to find the recipe. I did follow the advice of a reviewer and added 1/2 tsp. baking powder. I also agree you need to grease and flour the pan. My...

This came out great! I was born in Poland but moved here at 9 years old and this is very similar to what my grandmother used to make. Definitely a keeper!
