Lauri's Yummy Nut Bread

"This recipe for nut bread has been handed down from my grandmother and is sooo delicious. It's easy to make and everyone who tries it always asked for the recipe. For best results, mix with a wooden spoon, not with an electric mixer. It will overmix and become tough."

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease two 9x5 inch loaf pas.

Combine the flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon; stir into the sugar mixture alternately with the buttermilk just until mixed. Stir in the walnuts. Divide the batter evenly between the two pans.
  3. Bake for 55 minutes in the preheated oven, until a toothpick inserted into the crown comes out clean. Allow the bread to cool for about 10 minutes before removing from the pans, and wrap in aluminum foil.

This is very good, the flavor isn't overpowering,and my husband loves it! I made one loaf to keep and gave the other away. I will make this again for sure!

To anyone who will be making my recipe for nut bread, please make sure you mix everything by hand. Using a mixer will change the texture of the bread and it will not turn out as good.

My family really enjoyed this nut bread. The recipe will go in my keep box and be made over and over. It is great to make for gifts also. Thank you for sharing. It tastes great.

I tried this recipe with great hopes...and was very disapointed! The flavor is good, very sweet and mild, but the texture was very dense and hard. I DID NOT overmix, and I used a wooden spoon...

I had no problems with prep or the quality of the bread, it was just very bland. I guess I'm used to quick breads with more ingredients (fruit, chocolate, etc.) in them.

This was very very good. It also smelled delicious baking in the oven! =)

Sorry, this bread was dry and tough. Won't be making this again!
