Walnut Buttermilk Quick Bread

A whiff of this freshly-baked bread is 
just enough 
to remind you of the bread 
your mom made 
from scratch.  

It’s chock-full of succulent walnuts embedded in slightly sweet dough that’s spiced just right with cinnamon. 

It’s a quick and easy bread to pull together ~ a simple recipe that proves you don’t have to be a baking pro to make it.  

This walnut bread is dense, moist and delicious, with the only problem being, I should’ve doubled the recipe and made two loaves.

Toasted for breakfast is the way I like it!

I know, you always have the best stuff and I wrote your brand of bourbon down, since I've never baked with it before. But in the coming year, I may give it a go, inspired by YOU.
