"This is a wonderful sweet and hearty bread. It goes great with a bowl of soup on a winters day, or plain with a little butter. It is the easiest bread recipe you will ever make and I can't eat enough of it."

I made this delicious quick bread twice...the first time as printed, so I would know how it should taste, the second I used 2/3 cup honey because my husband prefers it to white sugar and added 1 more teaspoon baking soda (because of the honey). Both times it was very tasty. In fact, my husband has asked that I bake this bread instead of serving store-bought. To top that, my sweet mother-in-law insisted on taking the second loaf home with her! High praise indeed from a retired professional baker and a lady who raised a large family on homemade bread!

A hearty bread which is very easy to make. I found it a little too sweet; next time I'll use less sugar.

I loved this bread!! I halved the recipe to make one loaf. The dough was quite thick after mixed so I wasn't sure how it would turn out. I did rise an inch or two and that surprised me as I am used to having to use yeast. I baked it an hour and it came out well. I also used no whole wheat flour as I didn't have any on hand, so I used all all purpose white flour from hodgkin's mill. I also had to sub rice syrup for the sugar as I cannot have sugar. I also had no buttermilk so I sub full fat plain yogurt. It turned out great, butter on top made it awesome. It was almost sweet without being too sweet and very dense. I will make this again soon!!
