Buttermilk Quick Bread

As promised here is the quick bread that I was talking about in my Pass the Peas Please post.  This is a nice quick bread that packs lots of flavor.   I really liked it because it was easy peasy.

Buttermilk Quick Bread
from this recipe at Cooking Light

9 ounces unbleached, all-purpose flour (about 2 cups)
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups low-fat buttermilk
1/4 cup butter, melted
1 large egg plus one egg white
Cooking spray

Preheat oven to 350F.  Combine flour, sugar, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl; make a well in center of mixture. In a seperate bowl combine buttermilk, butter, and egg whites, stirring with a whisk. Add to flour mixture, stirring just until moist.

Pour batter into an 8 x 4–inch loaf pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 45 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes in pan on a wire rack; remove from pan. Cool completely on wire rack.
