If you use self-rising flour, omit the salt and baking powder.
Note from Carol:
I've experimented with this recipe. For chocolate bread, add 2 Tablespoons (30ml) cocoa to the dry mixture, substitute chocolatepudding for the vanilla, and omit the cinnamon, both in the recipe and in thesprinkling of the pans. You may add chocolate extract if you have it, but vanilla works well, too. For lemon bread, use lemon pudding and lemon extract, omitting the cinnamon. For banana bread, use banana pudding and banana extract, omitting the cinnamon, etc. Banana bread is, of course,great with walnuts or pecans added.
