Whole Wheat Quick Bread
Quick breads come by their name honestly. In fact, this one takes just 5 minutes to mix together -- then you can sit back and relax as the fragrance of freshly baked goodness permeates your home. Wonderful for breakfast, toasted and served with a bit of cream cheese and apple or pumpkin butter, this sweet and hearty loaf also makes a fine accompaniment to a bowl of hot soup.
- Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Grease 8 x 4 inch loaf pan.
- Mix dry ingredients together in a large bowl. Add buttermilk, egg and molasses and whisk to combine.
- Pour into prepared pan, sprinkle with oats and bake for one hour, or until toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.
- Cool in pan for 15 minutes, then turn out onto cooling rack. Cool completely. Slice and serve with butter, pumpkin butter, or jam.
