This is the most delicous bread I've ever tasted in my life. It was easy to cook and I had a great time doing that.

Lovely loaf, I didn't have any currants left so I used golden raisins and added fresh grated nutmeg(just because I like it), and a tsp of vanilla. Will deffinately keep the recipe and make again through out the year.

Not bad. I didn't have any candied fruit other than the lemon peel, so it was probably a bit different in flavor. It has taken me forever to use up my candied fruit, however, so I was not about to buy another couple of containers and start over. This bread is very moist, even though it had quite a crust on it. Mine was done at an hour, surprisingly, as my oven often requires longer for quick breads. It's very pretty but not my favorite--but I'm not so sure I like candied fruit much. I did like the currants in this. Thanks for the recipe!

Turned out great. I loved it, but no one else in my family liked it. They don't like candied fruit. Who knew! It's still an excellent recipe, so maybe I will make it for bake sales. I'm sure it will go well then!
