Simple Sweet Bread

If you’re looking for a little something sweet to snack on, this simple sweet bread is a dream. It’s great as-is or can be used as the base for all of your FAILSAFE sweet bread dreams.

I’ve never been an amazing or adventurous baker. Don’t get me wrong. I love baked goods. I just don’t love making them. Baking is more of a precise science and some days I feel like I need a degree in chemistry to truly understand how and why things work (or don’t, in my case).

As they say, necessity is the mother of invention. And since 99% if all pre-bought treats are off limits, I find myself baking a whole lot more than I ever have. Which may or may not be a good thing. (The kids would definitely say it’s a good thing.)

One of my go-to’s pre-FAILSAFE was banana bread. I have a tried and true recipe that my husband and I absolutely love. But it takes 4 serioulsy ripe bananas and that doesn’t really fly when you’re sensitive to amines. SO, I’ve had to find new sweet breads to create.

Before trying this one, my favorite was the (gluten free) pear bread. The flavor is delightful on that one but the center doesn’t always get cooked properly for me, making it somewhat frustrating.

The simple sweet bread, on the other hand, is absolute perfection. It turns out well every single time and since the ingredients are so basic, the flavor of the brown sugar really comes through. It’s so good that you really don’t need to dress it up with any add-ins.


But you don’t need to.

So do yourself a favor and make a loaf of the simple sweet bread today. Your entire family will thank you.

  1. Hi I can’t find the recipe for your simple sweet bread. At the bottom of the information for the sweet bread is the recipe for Maple Pear Oatmeal.
    Can you please tell me where to find it

    1. You should be able to use water in place of the milk without issue. You may need to add a tsp extra or oil into the mixture but I doubt there would be much of a difference.

      Please keep me posted, I’d love to know how it turns out!
