This is bread we enjoyed especially with some good strawberry jam! The bread has a nice flavor though it is a bit dense. Cook time includes the 1 hour to let it sit. Originally from "500 Fat Free Recipes."

This reminded me of PaulaG's California Breakfast Bread (#92333), except less sweet and with a stronger molasses flavor. The texture is superb- melt-in-your mouth moist and dense like a high-quality cake. I was kind of worried that it would not be sweet enough, just being sweetened with molasses, but it definitely is! I used whole wheat pastry flour instead of the white called for. I liked that you can just throw this together (one bowl- whoohoo! and let it sit while you do whatever else you need to do (This waited while I baked my polenta and then went in the hot oven.) I love that there is no oil or eggs but it still turns out so wonderfully and *delicious!* Thank you ladypit- I love this bread.
