An easy, delicious, and moist bread. It's a favourite of people at our church, my brother and his wife, and our neighbours. If your kids don't like it, perfect! That just means there's more healthy, yummy bread left for the adults to enjoy. Great for breakfast, especially with butter. - 14 Jul 2008


This would be good for a brunch. No one ate it at my house and I had to throw 1/2 of it away. My children did not hate it, but they did not attack it like they do most of my breads. They did not eat the pieces they had. This was just an average recipe. - 14 Jul 2008


This is very good, and forgiving; I forgot the bicarb (horrors) and, 5 minutes into baking, took the thing out of the oven and stirred it in...still came out fine. I used fake buttermilk (1.25 tsp lemon juice left in the milk for 10 mins on the counter) and the bread was nice and moist because of soaking the cereal in milk. Good with honey or on its own, and very easy to work with. - 14 Jul 2008
