Excellent. I used whole milk so that it would be a little creamier consistency. Also added more cinnamon, nutmeg and a dash of ginger as I like the spiciness.

I totally disagree with the 1 star rating, this was outstanding. Make sure you let the bread soak up the liquid for the requested amount of time or longer.

I found this to be too sweet and very watery. This was not what I expected from a Southern Living Recipe.
