Haven't read all the reviews, so I may be repeating some. Just took the loaves out of the oven an hour ago, so all I've had is one nibble--great, as expected. Substitutions I made: Had no baking soda, so used 2 Tbs. of baking powder. Didn't have enough butter, so used half butter, half olive oil. Instead of 2 c. white sugar, I used 1 c. plus 1/2 c. molasses. Didn't have 2 big enough loaf pans, so I used the one I had plus a smaller one and a small Pyrex casserole dish. Everything tested as done after 45 minutes, so out they came. Lots of alterations, so my rating applies only to the resulting hybrid. Bottom line, at least for me, is that you can adjust this recipe--and doubtless many others--ad lib to suit what you have on hand and your preferences. And still end up with a winner!
