It would seem that you can throw just about anything into an 8×4-inch loaf pan and have some sweet smellin’ magic come out of your kitchen after an hour or so. What’s more, pulling a beautifully risen quick bread out of the oven is sure to make you feel like your a prime-time, super legit baker.
Here’s a peek at my favorite quick bread recipes.
Oh! Happy Wednesday to you. Also… you look pretty today. I like what you did with your hair.
Low Fat Oatmeal Banana Bread. Still moist. Still all sorts of delicious. I even counted the Weight Watchers points on this one. Whaaaat!? Yea. That happened.
Raspberry Almond Bread. Yes, after it’s baked the bread turns a touch blue from the raspberries. What’s the science on that? Can we get Bill Nye the Science Guy on this one?
Zucchini Sweet Potato Bread. Fresh grated zucchini. Raw grated sweet potato. It’s unique, full of spice and delicious.
Chocolate Chocolate Chip Banana Bread. It’s chocolate. It’s for breakfast. If this offends you… I’m not sure what you’re doing here. I mean that with love and respect.
Lemon Drenched Lemon Cakes. Ok… so maybe this is more of a pound cake recipe than a quick bread recipe. This cake is too good to pass up. Lemon plus lemon syrup plus cake. I vote: awesome.
Honey Cranberry Cornmeal Quick Bread. Have any leftover cranberries in your fridge? Me too.
Fresh Mango Bread. I never would have thought to put fresh mango in bread until Dorie Greenspan told me it was ok.
Vegan Pumpkin Walnut Bread. Dense and moist. Who says you need butter and eggs to make awesome bread!? Whoever they are… kick ’em in the toe. They’re wrong.
Persimmon Bread. You are mighty strange persimmon bread, but I love you just the same.
Honey Whole Wheat Pound Cake. Dense. Nutty. It’ll charm your pants off. Be prepared.
these are cakes, not breads.
