Ok, this is not pretty but it tastes mighty fine. I seem to be very good at making good robust looking baking that is a bit camera shy. I guess, the proof is in the eating. This loaf is a recipe that could be eaten with custard or ice-cream when still warm but is equally good the next day. It is rather tasty.
