  1. He can do no wrong in my book. Looking forward to devouring the new release!

  2. I pre-ordered the book a while back, I love all of his recipes. Tried and true.

    Is there really no fat in the recipe? (e.g., butter, oil, etc.) Does it stay moist if not eaten in the first day or two?

  4. vonmoishe- there is not, and it does!

  5. I’m so excited about this book; I’ve been having a lot of fantasies of Paris recently and I think this will either help to ease them or make them a lot worse.

    These are beautiful photos, Tim! I’m looking forward to trying this recipe (I too already made the Bay Leaf Pound Cake).

  6. I can’t wait for the book to show up at my door next week!

  7. I agree about David; love reading his blog, have his cookbooks, and this one I’ll order for sure right away. Always nice to get your perspective, too.

  8. Katy- It will make them a lot worse. ; )

    [if possible] “wait a day before slicing”? but, but…the best thing about baking is pulling hot things out the oven and eating them immediately!! That rule would not apply to me I am afraid, but I will still try this – and yes, David rocks!

  10. Tia! I would seriously caution you against disobeying David’s suggestion. This is closer to a loaf of bread than a cake, and you need to let those things cool because otherwise the texture is ruined. This is definitely an example of a baked good that you do not want to eat warm from the oven, as tempting as the smell may be!

  11. thanks for this brilliant post!

  12. I adore David’s blog, and I’ve been rather excited about this book, so I can’t wait for it to come out so I can grab a copy and read it in my own French kitchen! This recipe looks fantastic, so thanks for sharing it as it is the sort of thing that my parents like to keep around the house for everyone to snack on and that is where I’m based at the moment. Ever since I heard about this book I’ve had a good feeling about it, and I think up with Joy The Baker’s next book in October it might be fighting for position for favourite book of 2014 for me!

  13. Making this! I’m no baker, but have mastered David’s Almond Cake recipe and everybody LOVES it. Have you tried it? His recipe is perfection. Just recently, I was thinking that I’d like to add another reliable baked good to my very limited repertoire. This Honey-Spice Bread totally fits the bill.

  14. I can’t wait to try this book! Tim, do you think I could I bake this recipe in an 8.5 x 4.5 inch loaf pan? I’ve read that recipes with 2-3 cups flour will work in a smaller pan (even when the recipe calls for a 9-inch pan).

  15. Hi Harriet- Yep, I think you’ll be fine.

  16. Can this be baked as muffins? Perhaps with golden raisins or currents added?

  17. Hi Lee- Anything is possible, but I would not recommend it.

  18. Thanks for the response, TIM. I take it that you are recommending against muffins (makes sense) and against adding raisins or currents?

    Thanks! I love your blog.

  19. Looks amazing! What kind (brand) of loaf pan do you use and do you like it?
    Trying to replace my Teflon coated pans.
    Thanks!

  20. Should I err on the side of underbaking rather than overbaking this bread? I made this last night and left it in the oven a little too long I think. This morning it’s dry and almost…rubbery? I had a bad experience with pumpkin bread not too long ago that came out raw in the middle (but the pumpkin bread batter was much wetter to begin with…could that be why?).

  21. Hi Lynn- Have you had this kind of bread in the past? It is not like a quick bread (banana bread) there is a little chew to it (more like sandwich bread). And I could even imagine it being described as dryish, especially if you were expecting something more cake-like. It’s usually served sliced thin and spread with butter, or even cream cheese is amazing. I toast mine, and spread it with salted butter and occasionally orange marmalade. So, I’m not sure if it was over-cooked or is simply different than you expected. Try toasting a slice and see what you think?

    This looks wonderful. Is it OK if I use local honey. I don’t wanna have nightmares…

  23. Looks delicious! I think it some cooked pears would go nice in this also!
