This recipe had a nice crunchy crust and yielded two loaves- perfect for giving as a gift. My friends tried to decline the second loaf to take home but they didn't really protest after I wrapped it up for them.
I made the recipe as written, except I didn't flour the pans cuz I forgot! No harm done. I also left out the walnuts because I didn't have any. I added mini chocolate chips because I love chocolate chips, too.
Thanks again, allrecipes and thanks V Monte, whoever you are! Your mom is awesome.
