Sorry, I just wasn't a fan. I was looking for more flavor like a dark nut bread or pumpkin bread type loaf. It was very moist. Just not what I was looking for.

My family really enjoyed this bread for Thanksgiving instead of the regular boxed bread mixes

Excellent recipe!! I am from the South so I used pecans instead of walnuts and it was really good.
