Quick and easy--we make it often. Freeze well and very nice toasted. (if you don't have all the flours, use a combination of what you have to make a total of 3 1/4 cups). From The Lighthearted Cookbook by Anne Lindsay.

This tastes good. I followed it as given and used craisins instead of the raisins. Mine did not rise as I thought it would. Basically the same size as before baking. I baked it only 40 minutes and the toothpick came out clean. Moist on the inside, crunchy on the outside.

I substituted like crazy - did not have buttermilk, but water-thinned yogurt worked beautifully and used flax seed meal in place of the rye - and this came out great! This one is a keeper!
