Baby Bread

This is my favorite quick bread to make for baby. And for me, too! This time we baked it together--thirteen months and he's already baking. I'm so proud. What's great about this bread, aside from being quick, easy and delicious, is that you can play around with the ingredients ad infinitum. I've used all kinds of flours, all kinds of grated fruits and veggies, all kinds of sweeteners. What doesn't change is that I always use yogurt. The recipe is from Bittman's Bitten column, Quick Whole Wheat and Molasses Bread. He goes into the other things you can use besides yogurt. Funny that the first comment is from someone who likes to make this for her toddler. Below is yesterday's take. I added milk because the batter/dough was a tad too dry.

2 1/2 cups white whole wheat flour
1/2 cup fine cornmeal
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
1 2/3 cup whole milk yogurt
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup milk

I added wet to dry, put in a greased pan, and baked for almost an hour at 350.

We had it with butter and this year's currant jelly, hot out of the oven. Do you have an easy go to bread?


  1. This is awesome, so easy! I like baking with my kid too. It's fun.

  2. Thanks, Betty! You should make it!

  3. Ellie, thanks for coming 'round! You are the sweetest. For you, this must be remedial!

  4. Thanks for sharing this easy recipe! I'm going to make this with my 2yo daughter tomorrow. She's got a deep affection for bread! LOL :)

  5. Don't we all! I'm sure she'll love it-thanks for coming by!
