  1. Yum!
    Im going to make these into muffins for my kids tonight.

  2. I found mini loaf pans and made 6 mini loaves, and an 9x13 pan. (Doubled the recipe)
    My house smelled sooooo good, and the kids all give it 2 thumbs up. They ate the 9x13 pans, and Im giving the loaves away in Christmas gifts.
    Thank you for sharing this recipe. It is a keeper!

  3. This would be good with a honey/cinnamon butter!
