Brown sugar and buttermilk give pleasing flavor to this no-fuss quick bread from Sue Ross of Casa Grande, Arizona. Nuts provide the tasty crunch.


  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons shortening, melted
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup chopped nuts


  1. In a bowl, beat the egg. Gradually beat in brown sugar and shortening. Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt; add to egg mixture alternately with buttermilk. Beat just until moistened. Stir in nuts. Pour into a greased 9x5-in. loaf pan. Bake at 350° for 45-55 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes; remove from pan to a wire rack.
