These small savory loaves are perfect for gift giving or when you just want enough bread for a small portion to accompany soup. One small loaf is the perfect size for 2-3 servings and you can freeze the second loaf if you like. I originally obtained this recipe after I saw it demonstrated on a cooking program called All in Good Taste.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Grease and flour two small loaf pans (I use the small disposable tin foil ones sold in 3-packs for gift giving).
  3. In a mixing bowl, whisk oil, milk, and eggs until combined and smooth.
  4. In a larger bowl, combine all dry ingredients,except nuts.
  5. Combine the wet& dry mixtures using a spoon just until combined- just don't overmix or it will toughen the bread.
  6. Stir in nuts.
  7. Pour into the prepared pans and bake approximately 20 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  8. Let cool on a wire rack.

Different and good! I baked this in one large loaf pan; I would suggest baking in a smaller loaf pan (as Heather did) or a multiple mini-loaves pan for a thicker loaf. 1/4 lb of pistachios perfectly equaled 1/3 cup. No matter what size, very good bread! Hint of sweetness, hint of saltiness. Great warmed with some butter.

Delicious! I used self raising flour + 1 tsp baking powder. I also added a spoonful of garam masala as I fancied a little spice. Excellent recipe, thanks!
