"This is a wonderful sweet and hearty bread. It goes great with a bowl of soup on a winters day, or plain with a little butter. It is the easiest bread recipe you will ever make and I can't eat enough of it."

whole wheat flour
I made this delicious quick bread twice...the first time as printed, so I would know how it should taste, the second I used 2/3 cup honey because my husband prefers it to white sugar and added 1 more teaspoon baking soda (because of the honey). Both times it was very tasty. In fact, my husband has asked that I bake this bread instead of serving store-bought. To top that, my sweet mother-in-law insisted on taking the second loaf home with her! High praise indeed from a retired professional baker and a lady who raised a large family on homemade bread!
So I don't like having to substitute, but had to thinking I had three cups buttermilk instead of two - was gonna make 3/4 recipe. Anyway, stuck with the 3/4 plan using 2c buttermilk & 1c Greek yogurt. Added sugar as listed since that yogurt is a bit cheesy (if you know what I mean. & if you don't, try it - you will. ;D) I thought it was okay. Kids thought it was "too brown." :D 'Wish they liked it. Oh, in one of the three miniloaves I made, I added a heaping eighth teaspoon cinnamon. It was just barely noticeable. 'More would've been fine. It's pretty dense, as expected.
A hearty bread which is very easy to make. I found it a little too sweet; next time I'll use less sugar.
I loved this bread!! I halved the recipe to make one loaf. The dough was quite thick after mixed so I wasn't sure how it would turn out. I did rise an inch or two and that surprised me as I am used to having to use yeast. I baked it an hour and it came out well. I also used no whole wheat flour as I didn't have any on hand, so I used all all purpose white flour from hodgkin's mill. I also had to sub rice syrup for the sugar as I cannot have sugar. I also had no buttermilk so I sub full fat plain yogurt. It turned out great, butter on top made it awesome. It was almost sweet without being too sweet and very dense. I will make this again soon!!
Very easy to make and delicious! A real winner. I will definately make this one again.
I have five kids ages 1 through 10 and they absolutely loved it! My husband and I also enjoyed it very much.
Different, but good. Tastes alot like sweetened cornbread. I would make it again. Followed the recipe as written.
One of the best recipes I have in my extensive recipe collection! So easy to make. Rich, moist, and delicious! Low in cholesterol because it contains no eggs, nor shortening of any kind, but it is a bit high in sodium. The recipe I use is for a single loaf. We use this bread for Communion at church.
