Recipe by echo echo
A quick bread, not a yeast bread, another of my longtime favorites adapted from my old Vegetarian Epicure cookbook. Unbelievably delicious spread with butter & honey--also good with cream cheese.

Only complaint is that it is too sweet for us but easy to correct and you can adjust sweetness to your taste buds. Otherwise a very good little bread and can be quite addictive. You could also use maple syrup if you like it.
