Sharon's Hint

Make a few loaves of this bread at once, slice and freeze in zip bags. Pop in the toaster and have a hearty breakfast that is easy to eat on the run!


Step 1. 

Preheat oven 350F. Prepare a 9” loaf pan with non-stick spray and parchment paper, set aside.

Step 2. 

In a large mixing bowl, whisk together wet ingredients until blended.

Step 3. 

In a separate bowl, whisk dry ingredients, add in fruit and nuts and add to wet ingredients. If batter is stiff, add a little more buttermilk.  Turn into prepared pan and smooth top evenly. Bake for 45-50 minutes or until browned and toothpick comes out clean.  Best served toasted.

Step 4. 

Keep bread in refrigerator sliced and wrapped in plastic wrap. Bread can also be frozen.
