I can't give it more stars, b/c like so many, I altered the recipe. I doubled all the spices, cut the oil in half and added that amount in apple sauce, added a pinch of ground cloves, and added a tablespoon or so of apple cider vinegar. I think this would've come out as very moist, but I placed the pan on the top shelf, and noticed halfway through that the top was already brownish. So I cut down the temperature (325F) and placed the pan on the lowest rack. Total cook time was 1hr 20min. The top had a little crunch to it, but it really added to the flavor. However, the loaf came out drier...like a moist bread instead of a dense cake (what I thought the texture would be). Still I had no problem with the flavor. Very spiced, very nice.
