Absolutely adore this recipe. The only changes I make is that I fold fresh or frozen blueberries into the batter just before spooning it into the pan. I usually make it into two loaves and share one of them with a friend. Also have made it with cranberries, equally great! Thank you so much for sharing this recipe!!
This is wonderful. It was so easy to make and the taste was delicious. I made a couple of small modification:; I used kefir rather than yogurt as I had some that needed to be used; I added some fresh blueberries; and I didn't make the glaze, serving the cake with cream instead.
This will definitely be made again, thanks!
This is perfect. I wouldn't change a thing! We had it with real whipped cream and a few late season strawberries and some wonderful Darjeeling tea. A real delight for the chilly, gray afternoon. This one's a real keeper.
