Great recipie, I highly recommend it, Member gerdbegone

Great recipe. My young unadventurous son also loves it. My loaf yielded 9 slices. With that size of slice, my nutrition info calculations are: 250 calories, 8 g fat, 1.3 saturated fat, 1.3 g fiber, 21 g sugar, 40 g carbohydrates and 4 g protein.
