I enjoyed making this quick bread...the only thing I would do next time is to sift the flour mixture. I think it would come out lighter but other than that it was very tasteful and easy to make. Will try this again..thanks
OK Gingernut, YOU are the reason I signed in to this site! I have never really used online recipes before (call me old fashioned) and haven't made bread since I was a kid. Since I'm living the post-grad school life, there is NOTHING in my fridge so I figured a yeast-free quickbread would be fun to make. However, I know NOTHING about baking and read some of the other reviews about your bread and they said you could make easy substitutions. So, instead of buttermilk, I used soy milk (no vinegar), instead of white sugar I used brown sugar. I also used all all-purpose flour because that's all I had in my house. I also didn't have molasses so I used honey. That being said, I thought I would ROYALLY screw up the recipe. It was WAY too sticky to knead so I just scooped lumps into my rectangular baking pan. I had super low hopes (mainly because its ME) but the other reviews made me feel better.
And let me tell you IT TURNED OUT AMAZING!!!!!!!
OMG I felt like a real baker!! I was so proud of myself haha- it was delicious and my friends were impressed too!
Its delicious and moist with the right amount of sweetness.
I have these homemade blackcurrant preserves I brought back from my trip to Ireland, and it worked AMAZINGLY on this bread.
I just wanted to say THANK YOU for this amazing, easy recipe that even fools like me can use to make delicious baked goodness!!! :)
This was phenomenal. I only made a couple of changes and nothing too major. 1) I used brown sugar instead of white. I liked the idea of it. 2) I didn't kneed it. I thought it was way too runny to kneed. 3) Instead of making a free loaf form, I put it in a cake pan. I will definitely be making this again. Probably weekly. Hubby thought it tasted like cornbread, but I thought it tasted like fresh wheat bread. Thank you for this recipe.
I'm impressed! I have such poor luck with breads! I love that this has no eggs. I easily made it vegan by using soy milk mixed with vinegar for the buttermilk. I did half the recipe for one loaf, and used all all purpose flour. There was no kneading the dough, it was far to sticky. I basically spooned it onto the tray and smoothed it into a bread shape as best I could. I didn't have high hopes. But it baked up beautifully! And smelled so good! The two of us finished it off between after dinner snacking and breakfast. This is a great "go to" to have around. Obviously a very forgiving recipe :)
Delicious bread recipe. Kiddos love it, easy to make for a quick "gift" and an all around pleaser. Thanks for sharing.
