Needed to make some bread quick but I had no sour cream or yogurt on hand to do the Irish Soda Bread, so i made this adapting from several recipes. It turned out great !!

For a quick bread, this is quite tasty. Good crust and nice flavor. Mine came out just a little bit crumbly but it was delicious with a little butter. I did add a TBSP or two of milk in place of part of the water. My husband had several pieces with jam. I'll make this again when I'm short on time and need a quick bread with dinner.

This quick bread recipe is perfect when you need bread on the fly. I added orange zest, a pinch of sugar and a smidge of vanilla for absolutely delicious scones.

The pros: Quick, easy, few ingredients. Very simple to make if you need bread within the next hour and want a home-made one.<br/>The cons: Very mild taste, not that good and not fluffy/soft enough. I expected more.
