Fibre, anyone? This is very easy and good, too. Sometimes I lose track of the point and replace the raisins with chocolate chips.
- 2 cups wheat bran
- 2 cups whole wheat flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup dark brown sugar
- 1 cup raisins
- 2 cups buttermilk
- Mix together all the dry ingredients.
- Stir in the buttermilk and let stand in a warm place for 1/2 hour before scraping into an oiled loaf pan.
- Preheat the oven to 350°F.
- Bake for 30 to 40 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted in the middle.
This was soooo good. Rich, dark, sweet and chock full of raisins. Mine took a little longer to cook - maybe another 10 minutes. I used two different types of raisins for color variety. This loked and smelled great, and tasted ever better. Perfect choice for breakfast and this is a nice accompaniment to a cup of tea. MMMMMM.
This was just ok.. as others suggested the cooking time needs to be increased. I increased it by 10 minutes and I still had a loaf that was a bit uncooked in the middle.
This bread is truly fantastic, rich taste, very filling and healthy! Exchanged the raisins with pumpkin seeds.
