This recipe is adapted from a cookbook my grandma gifted to me. It’s a lightly sweet and moist loaf that’s naturally egg free and perfect for a sweet treat, toast, or PB&J sandwiches.
Recipe type: Breakfast
Cuisine: American
Serves: 1 9×5-inch loaf
  • 2½ cups flour (I use 1½ cups all-purpose flour + 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1½ cups unsweetened dairy-free milk beverage
  • ½ cup honey (or honey alternative for vegan; see Special Diet Notes above)
  • ⅓ cup oil (your favorite type for baking; I use rice bran oil or extra-light olive oil (not extra-virgin))
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice, white vinegar, or apple cider vinegar
  1. Grease and flour or sugar a 9x5-inch loaf pan.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together the milk beverage, honey, oil, and lemon juice or vinegar.
  4. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients. Stir until fairly well combined, but do not overmix. Some small lumps are okay.
  5. Scrape the batter into your prepared loaf pan and level it out. Let the batter rest for 20 minutes. Preheat your oven to 375ºF.
  6. Bake for 40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean.
