I've always wanted to learn how to make bread from scratch. This is right down my alley. Cant wait to make it!

That is an awful lot of sugar - glad to see that some bakers have reduced it or substituted other things for it. I like the idea of doubling the spices too for added flavour

It was good the first time I made it but I quit using white sugar and the people I was taking it to don't eat sugar substitutes, so I used a bit of real sugar I had in a sugar bowl and added crushed pumpkin. It yielded a moist, well-cracked sweet batter bread. This recipe is a thicker consistancy than I am used to, so the pineapple juice took care of that. Now, I am making it adding a bit of cinnamon and using only 3/4 cup of agave nectar instead of all the sugar. Other might like the whole cup of nectar and you should probably add a tablespoon or two of flour to keep the thicker consistancy intended by this delicious recipe! Enjoy more healthily;)
