MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 8, 2012

Loved how quick this was to make. I added 2 teaspoons of cinnamon and 1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg. Also used soymilk with apple cider vinegar in place of the buttermilk and eliminated the nuts. It was delicious warm with butter or toasted with peanut butter. My picky two year old loved it.

Great tasting quick bread. The only change I made was to replace the buttermilk with my homemade kefir. It turned out wonderfully! This bread freezes well. We enjoy eating this with cream cheese on it. Thank you for sharing the recipe!
