I really loved this recipe very easy, low fat, moist. A little bland, but the next time I fix it I am going to add cinnamon and raisins. I think that will jazz it up a bit. Thanks Star


We actually made this bread as part of homeschooling...we needed to make something with barley so I thought this looked quick and easy...which it was. However we were pleasantly surprised at how GOOD it was though! SOOOOO yummy! My kids (ages 5 and 3) and hubby couldn't get enough of it. We may have made this for a project, but it will become a staple quick bread around this house! Only thing we did differently was to substitute half the white sugar with brown sugar.


I changed so much about this, that some may say it isn't even the same recipe! I used soy milk instead of buttermilk, 1/2 cup honey instead of the sugar, baking powder instead of the baking soda, and whole wheat flour instead of the all purpose kind. I baked it in a 9" pie pan for 1/2 hour. It is great bread! So whether this is a true review or not, I'm thankful for the recipe!
