I made this recipe right before Thanksgiving and OMGoodness, it was damn awesome. It was so good and moist that I have since made it again AND I am making it for all of the kids’ teachers as holiday gifts. It even freezes well. You don’t need to slather butter on it at all, just bake and serve. The best part, it’s considered a “light” recipe. Although, if you eat the whole loaf in one sitting, then I guess it wouldn’t be so “light”. You’ll have to pace yourself on this one.
