I haven't found anything this bread isn't delicious with, but try it warmed with butter and honey for an extra special treat. My husband and I are not huge bread eaters but I made this 2 days ago for St. Patrick's Day and the loaf is nearly gone. I baked mine for 45 minutes because it was still a little doughy at 40, but followed the recipe exactly other than that. I can't get enough of it.
