Very moist and especially flavorful with the brown sugar and spices; the combination is very intriguing... don't omit the pepper or the cardamom (you might be tempted to do so if you are not the adventurous-let's-try-this-it-sounds-like-it-might-be-crazy type, but DON'T!).
A slice is lovely all by itself, but its also good with a strong cup of coffee, or something else that is bitter to counteract the bread's sweetness.
NOTE: Try some after it has cooled, and try some the next day. You will taste the difference. Next day, this is such a treat. I store this bread overnight just on a serving platter (like in the picture), covered with a paper towel that's tucked under the plate.
