Ratings & Reviews



Fantastic recipe. Made them into 12 muffins instead and added semi-sweet chocolate chips (Baked at 350 for 20 minutes). I will make again for sure.


My 9 year old granddaughter made this recipe, with me as her sous chef. She added cranberries: Very good. I'll add 'extras' when I make it for my charity quilting group coffee break.


AWSOME!! I used whole wheat flour added cinnamon and nutmeg and baked them as muffins instead!! They were so good! Will totally make them again! :)


this recipe is awesome , I added pineapple and raisins and made muffins out of the bread



It was soft and tender on the inside but was a little dry probably due to the bran flakes....Crust was a little hard as well.


yummy... added chocolate chips for a little extra, will definitely make it again!!



This is an excellent and easy recipe to follow. Not only is it delicious, but healthy as well. I like this recipe because it does not taste too sweet, just perfect!


This is a quick and simple recipe that was a big hit!!! I added a 1/2 cup of chocolate chips to get the best of both worlds!!!
