What an amazing batter bread. I made this pretty much as written, but used 1 teaspoon of cinnamon and 1 teaspoon of mace (my mother always advocated the use of mace). All of us were delighted with the result. In future, and based on flavours we love, I might added extra cinnamon and some chopped crystalised ginger. Either way, this is a total success. Thanks for posting.
