Talk about a simple bread!
That's why I like to call it a "quick-bread".
There is no kneading, rising, resting...just combine the dry ingredients, the wet ingredients, and mix together!
Just that simple.
This bread has a bit of a bite to it, and can be adjusted to suit your desired hotness level.
I like this best toasted and coated in a nice layer of butter.
It is pretty hard to resist it. Especially that great aroma.
