“A sweet brown bread no eggs or fat added. Best served warm from the oven.” - by ANNETTE1951
Original recipe yields 2 - 9x5 inch loaves
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease two 9x5 inch loaf pans.
- In a large bowl, stir together the whole wheat flour, all-purpose flour, brown sugar, baking soda, and salt. Pour in buttermilk, and stir until all of the dry mixture has been absorbed. Divide the batter evenly between the prepared loaf pans.
- Bake for 1 hour in the preheated oven, or until a knife inserted into the crown of the loaf comes out clean. Serve warm. Store leftover bread wrapped in plastic wrap in the refrigerator. This reheats well.

We make sandwiches with it, toast it,or eat it plain. It is great sliced thick with soup, chowder, or stew. One of our favorite things to do is to roast it in the oven with garlic butter for a side with pasta, then we cut the left overs up into cubes, roast them again and use them in meatloaf or stuffing or on salads. I don't eat butter so i like to toast or roast this bread and then dip it in seasoned olive oil. Yumm! It is addicting. Not only is this bread delicious but it is sooo easy to whip up. No one in my family thinks twice about it. Everyone over the age of 10 has the recipe memorized. I take this to any meal I go to and have given this recipe out at least a dozen times. Thank you for a delicious, easy, healthy recipe. "
