A sweetish brown bread with no eggs or added fat. This is a quickbread, leavened with baking soda instead of yeast. As such, it will be moist but rather dense. Adapted from a recipe at


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F Grease 2 loaf pans, 9x5".
  2. Whisk buttermilk and sugar until sugar is dissolved. In another bowl, whisk both flours with baking soda and salt. Pour buttermilk over the dry ingredients and stir together until there are no visible streaks of dry flour. Divide batter between prepared pans.
  3. Bake 1 hour in preheated oven, or until a knife comes out clean. Serve warm. Store leftovers tightly wrapped in plastic in the refrigerator; it reheats nicely and makes great toast.
