This recipe comes from my niece, Tanya Monyihan who has a catering business called "Everything But The Guest". The secret to the phenomenal taste of this loaf is the Quarte Spices, a french spice combination.

"Quatre Epices" is a mix of white pepper, nutmeg, cloves, cinnamon and allspice(optional). You can find it in the store or seek a recipe on line.

This is a wonderful bread loaf you will truly enjoy.
Chose picture from google search will add one next time i make bread.

NOTES: "Quatre Epices" is a mix of white pepper, nutmeg, cloves, cinnamon and allspice(optional). You should be able to find it in the store. If not there are recipes for mixing on line. I get my spices from a small shop in Oakland California called Oaktown Spice Shop. Very, very reasonable prices.
