I love this loaf. It is dense, moist, and flavorful. We ate it stand alone with tea and coffee, but it is lovely with devonshire cream.

I would also serve this as a dessert loaf one of two ways.

American Way: Ice Cream and Whipped Cream

British Way: A Generous Spoonful of Warm Vanilla Pudding over a Slice

Either way you dish it, your family will love this sweet loaf.
