"This recipe uses light ingredients, but it still comes out moist with a mild sweetness. Great to make if you don't feel like waiting hours for traditional yeast bread, but are craving some." — RHSGOLFER7

egg, lightly beaten
whole wheat pastry flour
Very good and good for you. I substituted buttermilk for skim (its extrememely low in fat and very rich tasting). I cooked my first one 45 min and it was too long, made it dry. I cooked the second one approx. 40 min and it made a big difference, I also loosely covered the top with foil the last 10 min.
This is easy to make, satisfying, and has a good texture. However, it is just a little shy on taste. I'd add more maple syrup or cinnamon. A little cinnamon sugar on top would be perfect. I used fat free vanilla yogurt for sweetness, two egg whites, and skim milk to cut calories. FYI, the juice of one lemon is 2 -3 tablespoons. Thanks for the tip about putting foil on top. Definitely test the bread before fifty minutes.
So maybe I'm jumping the gun a little since I haven't even pulled this loaf out of the oven yet, but the batter/dough tasted so good, it is rising so beautifully (better than any bread I've made recently), and has the most delightful color. I had to substitute 1 T milled flax seed + 3 T water for the egg because I ran out yesterday and haven't been able to get through the snow to the store yet. I also used 1 2/3 c whole wheat flour + 1/3 c unbleached all-purpose flour because I didn't have any pastry flour. I can't wait to taste this!
This recipe is great- I happened to find maple yogurt at Whole Foods, so I used it! This is healthy & low cal. And surprisingly very moist! Reminds me a bit of gingerbread. All my quick bread recipes need to have foil on the top the last half of the baking time to prevent over-browning. No exception here. Thanks for submitting!
Wow I was surprised how amazing this recipe was with whole wheat flour. I made them into muffins instead of loaf pans. Kids ate them up!
i love this bread! i ate like half a loaf in a day! i made this even lower calorie than it all ready is: i substituted splenda for the sugar, egg substitute, skim milk, and just a bit of syrup for the taste. this was awesome! so moist, and crusty if you bake it a bit longer.
This recipe does not need any modifications to make it "light" or "low fat". It is already a healthy bread and if you use sugar free maple syrup..... of course it is going to be bland. The maple syrup is what gives it flavor.
I followed all the directions, but I found it bland (despite increasing the spices). I wish I hadn't wasted expensive syrup. I won't make this again.
