Recipe adapted from Pedgi at Allrecipes.Loaf pan recommendations:
I love baking bread in my Le Creuset stoneware loaf pan
so much that it deserves a mention. I also adore my new turquoise Fiesta stoneware loaf pan
. Both are non-toxic, heat evenly and clean easily. Highly recommended!*Baking soda/water update 10/13/14:
After several years of being baffled by the hot water/baking soda trick, I can now definitively report that it's an unnecessary step. If you prefer, you can just stir in ¼ cup water or milk (any kind) into the oil/honey/eggs and whisk the baking soda in with the spices. I'm leaving the recipe as is because I know so many of you love it as written!Need to omit the eggs?
I've heard from other commenters that flax eggs/chia eggs work well as replacements for the eggs. One commenter even said the bread turned out well when she forgot the eggs!Want to make muffins?
