Hi, Lynn – thanks for the chocolate chip bread recipe. Looks and sounds delicious! I do have one question. In the list of ingredients, only one egg is called for, but the directions say to combine EGGS with the buttermilk and oil. Is it safe to conclude the ingredient list is correct and that only one egg is needed? Thanks, Lynn!
We made this today and it was great. I used BRM 1 to 1 and cow’s milk plus lemon juice for the buttermilk. Both kids liked it and said this recipe is a keeper. Thanks!
Debbie, one egg was just right BTW. 🙂
This bread is awesome, I didn’t have any baking powder, and used lemon juice and homogenized milk instead of butter milk but it still turned out fantastic! It has a nice crisp outside and soft fluffy inside!
I am glad that you enjoyed the chocolate chip bread and that it worked with the changes! Thanks so much for letting me know.
