Bag End Brown Bread

Bag End Brown Bread created by C. Taylor

I found this wholesome, hearty bread on The Council of Elrond, a Tolkien-centered website which includes a treasure trove of fabulous recipes. AsliannQuinn, the site member who submitted the recipe, says: "Men and Elves can barely handle a slice of this Hobbiton staple without a big glass of milk." Well, whether you're a Tolkien fan or not, I'm sure you'll like this!

    This is bread and delicious and deserves far more reviews! It's moist and as other reviewers said quite light for a whole wheat bread. I added walnuts, and eat it by itself or with a little butter. I'm looking forward to trying other variations. Thanks for the recipe!

    Delicious bread! Easy to make! And so yummy! Everyone in our family loved it! I substituted 1/8 C. Splenda Brown sugar for the Brown Sugar and put 3/4 C. Chopped Pecans in it too. A little dense, but really moist, cooked up quickly, and was healthier than most breads! We'll be making this one a lot! I may add Craisins at times for a more breakfasty bread too. Best eaten hot. I think it would be really good as a dense french toast. Yum!

    Reminded me of brown sugar muffins. Our family finished the loaf at one meal, so the only thing I'll do differently next time is make 2!

    Yummy! I like the fact that this bread used whole wheat flour and no yeast (no waiting for rising). This bread made a tasty tuna sandwich and was soft and moist (surprising for a wheat bread!). The variations I made were as follows: I used light butter spread instead of butter. I used flax seeds for the top and no nuts. Very good!
