California Breakfast Bread

California Breakfast Bread created by Elodie

I have no idea why this is called California Breakfast Bread or where it comes from. I found this recipe typed, by a real typewriter, on a sheet of note paper. Goes to show that it has been around for awhile. It is scrumptious.

    California is (or used to be?) the "land of milk and honey", thus the name! With all those fruits and nuts, it's a perfect name for a lovely bread. I used raisins AND dried cranberries, probably close to a cup total, and finely chopped walnuts. Also used the powdered buttermilk, and added about 1 tbs of flaxseed for extra nutrition. Delicious, dense, wonderful recipe!! Thanks so much - TJ

    A little disappointing after so many great reviews. We love dark, heavy bread, and although it looked wonderful, the taste was bland and fairly forgettable. I don't think I'd make it again unless I just happened to have 2 cups of buttermilk that I needed to use up.

    This recipe intrigues me - no eggs? Allow to cool EIGHT HOURS before slicing? It is sitting on my counter right now and smells delicious! Like the previous reviewer I'll be back with a taste test and a photo once I can dig in! Okay - tried the bread after letting it rest 8 hours - fabulous! I brought it on a "girls getaway" for breakfast and it was loved by all! We found it was very nice with a little cream cheese spread on it. This will definitely be part of my quick bread repertoire !
