Expert Tips

  • To substitute for buttermilk, use 1 tablespoon vinegar or lemon juice plus milk to make 1 cup.
  • Date Bread: Substitute packed brown sugar for sugar; decrease nuts to 1/2 cup. Stir in 1 cup chopped dates and 1 teaspoon grated orange peel after flour addition. Pocket of Streusel Bread: For filling, mix 1/2 cup packed brown sugar, 1/2 cup chopped walnuts, 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon and 1 tablespoon butter or margarine, melted. For batter, substitute packed brown sugar for sugar; decrease nuts to 1/2 cup. Spread half of batter in greased and floured 9x5-inch loaf pan. Spoon filling down center of batter; spread to within 1/2 inch of sides. Carefully spoon remaining batter over filling, spreading gently to cover. Bake 50 to 55 minutes.
