  1. This bread is delicious!

    • Hi Lynn. I’m so glad you enjoyed it! I was shocked and delighted myself that a bread made with brown rice flour and honey could be so light, fluffy and delicious. I have played around with the recipe and created a carrot cake version. I made it for my daughter in law’s birthday and even my grown son, who is a bit of a white flour die-hard, said it was the best carrot cake he had ever eaten! I will post it on the QT website soon. Please let me know if you need any food conversion ideas. Blessings, Kristin

  2. This recipe looks wonderful.I can have butter but no milk,do you have a suggestion as to what to replace the sour milk or yogurt with? I do make water keefer and perhaps I could mix that with coconut milk?
    Thank you,

    • Hello Daniela. You could try coconut milk or any non-dairy milk. My mother used to sub milk with a tsp of vinegar for a cup of sour milk in muffins – you could play around with that as well. Please let us know your results! Happy baking; happy treats. Kristin
