    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    if you are a fan of the canned version you will love this! --- not only is this low fat, egg-free and very low in cholesterol it takes only 5 minutes to mix although there is another 5 minutes sitting time, you may use 2 cups whole wheat flour and 1 cup all-purpose flour either way works well--- for greasing the pan see my Pan Release, Professional Pan Coating (Better Than Pam Spray!)

      Lost my recipe for Boston Brown Bread, and found this as I was looking for a replacement. I omitted the raisins or dates, and it was just as good as the one I'd lost. Very healthy and easy, with a nice texture and flavor. Now I don't feel so bad about losing the other recipe!

      This bread is amazing. I would have given it six stars if possible. I think the most amazing thing about this recipe is there is no added fat! In spite of that, it is not short on flavor. I added about 1/4 of chopped pecans. This bread is simply wonderful. I have been looking for a recipe like this one for a while. It is worth trying. You won't be disappointed!
