Millet Quick Bread
I make my own breads as i don't care for the wheat-free, egg-free, milk-free breads that you can buy. Our favorite here for a sandwich bread is this one.
This bread is very good lightly toasted. This recipe makes 2 slightly small loaves. I've worked out the measurements for a recipe that makes slightly bigger loaves, but i only have the measurements worked out in grams. That is actually an easier and more reliable way to bake, but it does require a good kitchen scale (I got a good one from target for about $26. You put the mixing bowl on, set the scale to 0, and then add each item directly to the bowl, weighing as you go. After adding each item, you reset the scale to 0 for the next item. Quicker and makes fewer dirty measuring cups, etc.).
