How interesting that my bread looks nothing like the picture shown! I really like this bread. I made a recipe almost similar to this years ago and was looking for something close. I read some of the reviews and let my cereal and milk soak for about ten minutes or so, so it would be a little mushier. I also added about a half cup of organic raisins and a tsp. of vanilla. I'm so glad to have this recipe again. The person I'm gifting this to is going to love it. This is a chewier quick bread. NOTE: If you add raisins like me and want them to be a little plumper, soak them in hot juice/water/soda for about 20 minutes. You'll have a fatter raisin and a little fruitier flavor to your loaf.

Very tough crumb in spite of using buttermilk which softens the crumbs. Requires too much beating which creates too much gluten. Flavor good though. Too healthy for kids to like!

Wonderful. Last night I made one "regular" loaf (using raisin bran), then decided I needed a second and added 1 t cinnamon and 1/3 c chocolat chips with chip on top also. I took it to work and everyone wanted the recipe. Very moist and not too much fat :) I recommend highly. I cooked the full time plus a few minutes.

I liked the bran cereal in the bread but my first bite indicated the 3 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder and 1 teaspoon of baking soda was too much for this recipie. I've seen recipes of similar quantities with no more than 1.5 teaspoons of baking soda and powder combined. Using fresh baking soda, I got a rather dry, salty taste.

i have made this recipe twice as muffins and they are very good! i used all-bran cereal, raisins and walnuts in place of the raisin bran cereal and cut back the white sugar to 1/4 cup. the recipe makes a perfect dozen muffins and only needs to be cooked 30 minutes as muffins. will definitely make again.

This was good and easy. I had all the ingrediants and it certainly was moist. I added about an extra 1/4 cup of raisins. This went into my recipe file.

At first I thought it had yeast in it as it looks like a yeast bread in the picture but anyway it was delicious and all my family loved it. Next time I will try it with canola oil and splenda and see what happens./...Barb G
