I cut this recipe in half. I did not add nuts only because I didn't have any. I made muffins out of this recipe. I got exactly 12 muffins out of one recipe. Very moist and flavorful quick bread ...

Very dense cake amd would be really good to come home to on a blustery wet day!!! I thought it would taste good with a thick cream cheese icing!!! Made the house smell real spicy.

Bad, bad, bad. Not worth the trouble to modify the recipe. There are numerous great recipes available.
