I've made this bread over the span of 20 years for family christmas gatherings. Its been one of my sisters favorite treats. With this recipe you can tweek it, and add your own special spices, raisins, chopped dried fruit. Make it your own special loaf. Kids enjoy this bread too, just make sure no one is allegic to nuts...!!!
