directions

  • Mix flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together in a large bowl. Make a well in the middle, set aside.
  • Mix the rest of the ingredients together in another medium sized bowl; pour it in the middle of the dry ingredients, and stir JUST UNTIL IT IS MIXED TOGETHER. If you overstir it, it will become a tough piece of crap.
  • Preheat an oven to 350 degrees and wait 2 minutes; grease a loaf pan(9x5x2 1/2 i think).
  • Bake for about 45 minutes, until the crust is brown and if you stick a toothpick inside it will come out clean.

    This is a fantastic recipe! I've processed oats and used that, mixed in lemon seltzer water and it was still delicious! I've used flour and added blueberries and it was amazing similar to blueberry pancakes. Every time I used Truvia, and a lot less than recipe calls for and it's still amazing! Love this recipe!!!!

    I really liked this. Trying to watch my calories, I subbed Splenda for the sugar, used 1/2 c. of applesauce in place of the oil, added lemon zest and used 2% milk. Calories ended up being 97 with less than a gram of fat. Thanks for sharing..I will make this again.

    This turned out pretty good. I replaced the oil with 1/2 cup of applesauce. I also doubled the lemon juice, added the zest from the two lemons I used and added 1/2 a teaspoon of freshly ground cardomon. So, it had plenty of flavor. I was very careful not to over mix. I was definitely not looking to bake 'a tough piece of crap' :) The texture was okay. It was better the next day. And with the oil substitute and using fat free milk it turned out to be only 2 points per slice, not bad at all!
