Brown Bread

Time to bake a traditional family recipe.
Heaven forbid, I forgot the old recipe for Brown Bread.
Every once in awhile, I will stop in at O'Reillys
for a slice of brown bread. Ficra, the proprietor, (hopefully I spelled his name right
or its the last time he will serve me an ice cold Guinness beer
and shot of Jameson whiskey;
serves up a nice slice of brown bread with my corn beef quesadillas and shepards pie.

Fortunately, my new friend at cooking class not only made the bread in class,
 but she shared the recipe I had forgotten.

Brown Bread
2 cups Whole wheat Flour
1 cup Bran flakes or All Bran
1/3 cup Quaker Oats
2/3 cup Wheat germ
2 Tbls Raw Brown sugar
1 tsp baking soda
2 cups Buttermilk
Mix all dry ingredients and add buttermilk
Preheat oven to 400 degrees
Then reduce heat to 375 for 45 mins.

Here's a toast (brown bread and raise a glass) to Fiona !
Thanks for the recipe.
