GR;EAT.~EASY TO MAKE/
Very difficult to make and handle (since dough is so sticky), but well worth it. One of the best breads I've ever made
Took it to our pot luck and didn't even come back with crumbs. I made the dough in my bread machine and I used pecans since I didn't have walnuts on hand. I bought a baby food jar of apple juice and I have 90% still left so I think I'd use milk or maybe rum :) next time for the glaze.
Made a special addition to Christmas breakfast. Made the dough up to adding it to the pan and froze for a few days ahead. Took it out of the freezer and let it thaw on the drive over to my mom's house. Kept in the refrigerator overnight and baked the next morning. Worked just fine! Also, I was hesitant to bake with reduced fat butter so I substituted half butter and half Smart Balance. A bit healthier and tasted just like Grandma used to make. Also substituted fat free milk for the cider in the icing, but that was mainly because that was all that was on hand at my mom's.
Good Bread. Mine did not rise in the amount of time specified. I needed to allow to rise longer. I made it into 3 smaller loaves.
This receipe is OUTSTANDING! I have friends saying they will pay me to make them a loaf. :-)
