I really enjoy this in the mornings. Instead of the citron though, I use a mix of black and gold raisins.

Reviewer Helen said this recipe made her homesick - I tend to agree!. Have always loved this bread (and there are many variations). Great thinly sliced with butter or cream cheese. I notice that a lot of reviewers complain that baking times are not correct - I never totally trust baking times as given because oven differ. Saves a lot of heartache and disappointment.

I added orange peel & dried fruit in place of the citron.
