Brown sugar bread

This recipe will make two medium-sized loaves of delicious brown sugar bread. I used all-purpose flour, but you can use white whole wheat flour as a substitute. You can also add additional ingredients to the dough if you desire, at any time before baking the loaves. Add-ins can include the following ingredients: cinnamon, chocolate chips, nuts, oats, or fruit.

  • 1 cup of brown Splenda or regular brown sugar (light or dark brown sugar both work)
  • 5 cups of all-purpose flour (plus additional if it's needed)
  • 2 tablespoons of active dry yeast
  • 2 cups of lukewarm water
  • ½ cup of whole milk
  • 2 tablespoons of canola oil
  • 1 teaspoon of kosher salt


In a bowl, add the brown Splenda or brown sugar, flour, and yeast together. Stir well.

Now, add the water, milk, canola oil, and kosher salt to the flour mixture. Combine thoroughly and knead the dough until it comes together into a smooth ball shape. Then cover the dough with a tea towel. Allow your dough to rest for approximately one hour.

Next, grease two 1-pound loaf pans and use half the dough for each pan, or transfer all the dough to a 2-pound bread pan. (I used two oval-shaped pans.)

Bake for about fifty minutes up to one hour (depending on how brown you prefer your bread) in a 350 degrees F oven.

Take your loaves of sweet bread out of the pan and allow them to cool before slicing. Serve and enjoy!

A huge thanks goes out to all for reading, following, and sharing Gin Lee's articles! Thank you! Since Gin Lee lives in a rural area, there's not much local news to cover. So, she covers articles of interest on how-to's about organic gardening, recipes, homesteading, and survival techniques. If those things are of interest to you, then you'll never (hopefully) be disappointed. She tries to cover a wide variety of articles to entertain everyone. Comments are turned off due to rudeness and hatefulness. The world has enough vulgarity, hatefulness, and arrogance without it having any help. Since having the simple courtesy of manners is lacking and sharing words of kindness does not abide in a few people. Those few people ruin what's supposed to be educational and an enjoyable experience for all others. Gin Lee does have children and young adults that are followers. Potty mouths, vulgarity, and hate are not acceptable. Apologies go out to those of you who generally are very sweet and also to Gin Lee's followers who have been a witness to others being rude and malicious. Hopefully, you'll be understanding of the measures that have to be put into place. Please be kind to one another.
