This bread is a favorite in our family. It's very festive and is a wonderful breakfast bread or great for a snack. We have enjoyed this recipe many times and I even sell loaves throughout the holidays!

*Eat plain or top with powdered sugar and cinnamon or even cream cheese icing and walnuts! Delish either way =)

1
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease an 8x4 inch loaf pan.
