Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour a 9-inch loaf pan set aside.

  3. Add the wet ingredients and stir until just combined. Pour batter into the prepared pan.

  4. Bake for 45 minutes to 55 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean. Everybody’s oven is different.  Cool for 5 minutes before inverting onto a wire rack.

    2. Poke a few small holes in the top of the loaves and drizzle the glaze over it.
