Really Good Bread

My family loves this bread and always asks for it.

Similiar to what I make

I was just checking your recipes and found this to be very similiar to a one I make adding additional ingredients to a popular box mix. With mine I add apple juice and chopped apple which adds more flavor. Once the bread comes out of the oven, you spoon warmed apple jelly over the almonds. Yum!

Needs more liquid!

I took note of previous reviews that stated that the product was overly dry and crumbly, so I added about 1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt and a little extra milk (sorry, didn't measure the milk) to make the batter more of a typical quick-bread consistency. With those changes the recipe is delicious; a definite keeper, and not at all dry.

Extremely dry and fell apart when trying to cut

If you liked this recipe, did you do something different? It tastes good but is extremely dry and crumbled when cutting. Any suggestions as to how to make it moist?

make cutting easier

I make a lot of these breads around holidays for gifts! The trick I use is I alway "freeze" the bread first! Even if I intend to take it to a affair that night,because that makes it easier to cut through the nuts ,etc! It thaws really quick.By the time You arrive for the Goodies to be put out!
