Moist Wheat Bread Loaf

What you need: 

1 cup plain soy milk
1 tablespoon vinegar
2 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons molasses
2 tablespoons melted soy margarine
1 egg substitute (Ener-G egg)
optional: 1/2 cups raisins or dates

What you do: 

Preheat oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit. Coat a bread loaf pan in non-stick cooking spray.
Begin by combining the 1 cup soy milk with 1 tablespoon vinegar and set aside.
Mix all dry ingredients together thoroughly.
Stir up soy milk mixture.
Add all wet ingredients, including soy milk mixture, to dry ingredients. Mix well and scrape in to the prepared pan.
Bake for 40 minutes.
(This "bread" is not suitable for fluffy, light sandwich bread. It more closely resembles moist corn bread in texture. With the addition of dried fruit, it makes great muffins!)

SO HOW'D IT GO?

This was awful. I'm not sure if the oven wasn't hot enough, or if for some reason it needed to cook longer, but the inside was totally raw, while the outside was done. Totally ruined my night...total flop.

I didn't have any Molasses on hand so I sub for raw honey and I always use baking soda with the combination of vinegar in my recipes  All N All it came out great, just like everyone is saying,.

um...I'd eat it with soups and stews, anytime you would use cornbread.  Our family has an aversion to cornbread.  The molasses really does make a difference overall though.  If you left if out it would be pretty bland.  Like molasses-less gingerbread--bleach!

It's good as a dessert even.

What kinds of things would you serve this bread with? My current living situation does not permit me to make homemade yeast bread like I usually do, so this is appealing. In the picture it looks almost like cake! :-) Also, do you think it would be ok to omit the 2 Tbsps of molasses?

I baked this yesterday.  The bread came out delicious and the texture is wonderful; not too moist, not too crumbly.  The only problem is that it didn't rise as much as I would have liked.  I understand this isn't meant to be super poofy, but it was still too low/compact.  Perhaps consider adding a teeny bit more baking soda?
