This bread freezes delightfully, if you slice it and wrap pieces it's fantastic to grab in the morning going out of the door. To have at night as a snack, or to pull out for tea with friends :). I hate nuts.. but you could add 1 1/2 cups walnuts or pecans if desired. EDIT:When I wrote this I failed to see how I'd missed the "simple" steps. I have a kitchenaid stand mixer with one of those pour in spouts. I drop my wet stuff in the bowl, put on the spout, put the arm down and put it on mix. I just drop in the dry as it mixes. I think it really takes me like 10 minutes max, to actually make this, and that's with the putting stuff in the bowl and adding the attachment. One poster said she'd had problems with a "baking powder taste", just try cutting it back. Cut your recipe in half and try 1 loaf, if you still have the problem, cut the powder back by 1/8th of a tsp.
