Whole-Wheat Quick Bread

Whole-Wheat Quick Bread
(mormon essentials cookbook)

When I saw this recipe I wasnt quite sure what it would be like, allthough I loved that it takes no yeast, and from start to finish it takes 1 hour. It has the consistancy of a zuccini or banana bread.
It was delicious! With butter and honey, it almost felt like we were eating cake. My 2 year old ate 3 slices and kept saying "more" So, I love this recipe and because all the ing. are in my food storage, I can make it anytime!

1 egg, beaten (1 T. dry egg powder + 2 T. water)
2 c. buttermilk (1/3 c. dry milk powder + 2 c. water + 2 T. vinegar or lemon juice, let sit for 5 minutes)
3 T. molasses or honey
2 T. butter, melted
2 c. whole wheat flour
1 t. baking soda
1 t. salt
1 t. baking powder

In a bowl, combine egg, buttermilk, molasses or honey, and butter. In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking soda, slat and baking powder. Stir well; add to first mixture and mix well. Pour into a greased loaf pan. bake at 400 degrees for about 45-40 minutes, until lightly brown. Cool slightly then turn out of the pan onto a wire rack. Slice while warm. Makes 1 loaf.
