This was a nice filling bread. I preferred it toasted than straight out of the oven with a bit of cream cheese on top. Is quite heavy so fills you up good too.
Made this recipe as written & gotta tell you that THIS BROWN BREAD IS WONDERFUL! I used dark brown sugar & dark molasses for this! Too bad it's buried deep in Zaar recipes! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Healthy Choices ABC cooking game]
This was great. It tasted even better than what you get in the can--I know, it's hard to believe. We put raisins and dates in one loaf, and the other without, and either way was tasty, and relatively good for you, too. It took about 20 minutes to make.
