  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease two 9x5 inch loaf pans.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together the whole wheat flour, all-purpose flour, brown sugar, baking soda, and salt. Pour in buttermilk, and stir until all of the dry mixture has been absorbed. Divide the batter evenly between the prepared loaf pans.
  3. Bake for 1 hour in the preheated oven, or until a knife inserted into the crown of the loaf comes out clean. Serve warm. Store leftover bread wrapped in plastic wrap in the refrigerator. This reheats well.

Great recipe! To make it more moist, I like to substitute half a cup or more of molasses for half a cup of brown sugar. Usually we have it with baked beans, but if we're having it for tea or fo...

I read all the reviews before making this. Everyone enjoyed it smothered in butter, but there was an aftertaste of baking soda, if you just ate the bread alone. I'm thinking of adding spices (ci...

This was very tasty. I made no changes to the recipe. (Isn't it nice when no changes are necessary?!)

Just took this out of the oven a few minutes ago and we have eaten half of it already (but I have 7 children to feed).... just caught my 2 year old sharing with her 6 month old sister. I ha...

I made it last night and it came out great! My family looked at me after the first bite and said "It's a keeper!" It definitely is. This is probably one of the easiest breads I've ever made a...

Really, really good. Followed the recipe exactly and while it's rather dense (but so is banana or other quick breads) this had a healthy yet sweet taste that my whole family liked. This bread ...

makes a tasty bread. Ideal to serve with a meal. Not a sandwich bread. Really loved this recipe.
