Maple Quick Bread
- 1/3 c. milk
- 1 c. plain yogurt
- 1 egg, lightly beaten
- 1/2 c. pure maple syrup -- best if from Garrett County
- 1 lemon, juiced
- 2 c. whole-wheat pastry flour
- 2 tsp. baking soda
- 1 tsp. cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp. nutmeg
- 1/2 c. walnuts, chopped (optional)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a large bowl, mix the milk, yogurt, egg, maple syrup, and lemon juice. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, spices, and nuts. Gradually stir the dry ingredients into the milk mixture until combined. Do not overbeat. Pour into a greased 5x9-inch loaf pan. Bake 50 minutes, or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
