Colonial Brown Bread

From Kathy Borkowski via


Really good moist bread to whip up for dinner or toasting or both!



4 cups whole wheat flour

1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour

1 cup brown or coconut sugar

4 teaspoons baking soda

1 teaspoon salt

4 cups (1 quart) buttermilk


Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease 2 loaf pans (about 9×5). In a large bowl mix all dry ingredients well. Sally uses a whisk to do this. Then stir in the buttermilk all at once. Immediately, divide the batter between the 2 prepared pans and bake for 55 to 60 minutes or until a knife inserted in the middle of the loaf comes out clean.


Great to serve with dinner and or soup. Makes wonderful toast too. Store well wrapped in the fridge. Or freeze after slicing, so you can take as many slices as you like out of the freezer. The frozen slices will thaw quickly at room temperature.
