Swope Bread Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 1)
Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2014
My very picky family LOVED this bread... and I even oopsed a bit! I had no butter milk, so I added fresh lemon juice to plain milk only to discover that I had no baking soda. I corrected with extra baking powder and removed the salt. Served it with a lentil loaf and received two thumbs up from everyone. I'll make this again for sure, next time with the correct ingredients.

This is tasty and chewy. I forgot to dissolve the baking soda in the buttermilk first and it came out nicely anyway.

I have only one(!) 9x5 bread pan so I cut the recipe in half, used low fat buttermilk and cut the sugar to 1/4 cup. It came out wonderfully delicious! My husband wants me to make it instead of buying bread at the store. I suppose I should buy a second bread pan...

So easy and so good. Next time I will try a little less sugar but great as written. Had to use milk soured with vinegar and it worked just fine. Be sure the soda is all dissolved.

Very simple to through together... the final product did seem to be rather dense... but the bread had great flavor even though I cut the sugar back by half... will definitely make again if a need a bread but don't have prep time for kneading...

This was ok but we all thought it had a slightly odd flavor and was way too sweet, even though I reduced the sugar. Probably won't make again, although I'd love to find a quick substitute for yeast bread when I've run out!

The creator of this recipe can not be serious when calling this wheat bread. 1 cup of sugar made this cake...a cake without any added flavor like vanilla or cinnamon. It reminded me of a sweet, a very sweet cornbread. It would probably be good if you turned it into a banana or another sweet bread. I was looking for wheat bread....a huge dissapointment

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.

This is definitely an easy bread to make. I love that there's no yeast in it - makes it mighty quick to make. Personally, I love the sweetness of it, but if you're not into it you could easily cut down on the sugar to maybe 2/3 cup. Still, it's delicious!

My only change was using Splenda in place of sugar. I have mixed feelings about this bread. It was incredibly quick and easy to throw together but it was far from my favorite. I took some to my mother and she thought it was really good. I'm sure it would complement some dishes, as it is very dense and hearty. I actually think it would taste pretty good using 100% all-purpose flour but that would take all the nutrition out of it.
