      Top of my quick bread list. I hate air breads from the store. I of course changed it a bit. I used 1/2 Whole Wheat flour and 1/2 unbleached flour. I also replace the corn oil with coconut oil to increase the health benefits. If I don't have buttermilk, which is most of the time, I use a mixture of 1/2 milk and 1/2 sour cream. I also ditch the raisans most of the time and never do the caraway seeds. I don't bother with brushing the top with milk I do this with coconut oil after it is baked to keep the top soft. My kids like it better that way. I also double it more than not. These are all minor changes to the basic recipe.

      This bread was SO good. I brought it to a St's Pat's dinner party and it was a huge hit. I substituted poppy seeds for caraway b/c the grocery store didn't have any caraway seeds. Not purist but still delish. Quick and easy too.
