margo's molasses bread

i've only made this one a couple of times, and never since we moved across the country. i think i'll try it tomorrow, when i have plenty of okara left from making tofu. (it works well in place of the yogurt/ buttermilk) thanks, margo!

2 cups whole wheat flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 tsp caraway seeds (optional)
3/4 tsp salt
1 large egg
1 cup buttermilk or plain low-fat yoghurt
1/2 cup molasses (I use blackstrap)
1/4 cup vegetable oil

oven temp 350. butter 9x5" (1 1/2 quart) loaf pan

combine flour, powder, soda seeds and salt.
in another bowl beat egg, add buttermilk/yoghurt, molasses, and oil.
Scrape wet mix into dry mix and stir until just combined
pour into loaf pan, bake 40 minutes or so. Cool on rack 10 minutes then remove loaf from pan and cool at least an hour before slicing. (hard to do -- but it does crumble into a big mess so very easily...)

buon gusto!
