This is a variation of Beer Bread. It makes a fat-free, loaf shaped 'biscuit' that does not brown very well. Sliced thin, it makes a great toast for breakfast.

I made this bread for my best friend, as she is allergic to yeast. I was skeptical at first. I used Sprite diet soda. Today she opened her "gift" and we had a toasted piece. WOW! It was so good. She said she could easily get hooked on this bread and was cheaper than what she was buying at the health food stores. She is making another loaf tomorrow. It's a keeper! Read More

I had never baked bread before trying this recipe. Hence, I used a glass loaf pan instead of metal. My bread came out too doughy due to using the wrong container. Just sharing my goof, so that others use this great recipe properly. Read More

This gives new meaning to the term 'soda bread'. I thought I had really messed it up (didn't have self-rising flour, used 2 tsps. baking powder and 1/2 tsp. salt added to reg. flour, plus I baked in a pie plate), but the flavor was really, really good! I was so surprised at the taste. Kind of chewy and slightly sweet (I used 7-Up and only 2 tablespoons of sugar). There is something magical about this strange combination, but it works! Read More

This was a super fast to prepare and super easy bake! Tasted great too! I shared it with my co-workers and I didn't have to print the recipe it was so easy to remember. I'm going to try it adding Italian seasonings and parmesan cheese. Read More

This bread is great but to make it less sweet and better for sandwiches I use a can of club soda instead of lemon lime soda. I am allergic to yeast so this is as close to bread as I get, what a wonderful alternative to yeast breads! Read More

This is an excellent easy recipe. It works with any flavor of soda. For a little extra flavor I add the zest from an orange to the batter. Read More

I loved this recipe. I made it twice so far once plain and once with garlic. I used a can of regular Sprite and 1 Tbs. sugar next time I would not add the sugar. I also added a few thin slices of butter on the top. I used it to make grilled cheese sandwiches and just served plain. My family loved it. Read More

I used whole wheat flour, & added 3 tsp baking powder & 1 tsp salt. Others had mentioned something about the center being a little doughy, so I made a trough down the center of the dough before putting it into the oven. I used a metal baking pan, & it came out PERFECT. My daughter & I LOVED it. I may never have to buy bread again. ;~) Read More

This was the first "from scratch" bread I baked. I was going to pass it up and decided...if it comes out bad, what did I really waste. I have no complaints whatsoever and would reccomend it to anyone! Read More
