     1/2 c  Packed brown sugar                1/2 ts Baking soda

   Beat all ingredients except gumdrops and nut in a large mixer bowl on low
   speed for 15 seconds. Beat on medium speed, scraping bowl constantly, 30
   seconds. Stir in gumdrops and nuts. Pour into a 9 X 5 inch loaf pan that
   has been greased on the bottom only. Bake at 350F for 60 to 65 minutes, or
   until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean. Loosen sides of
   loaf from the pan. Remove bread from the pan and cool completely on wire
   rack. For best results, wrap and refrigerate at least 24 hours before
   slicing. Refrigerate no longer than 1 week.
