About Quick Breads
Quick breads are breads that don’t require any yeast, and instead use leaveners like baking soda and baking powder to make them rise. And because there is no yeast in quick breads, they require no rising and no kneading. So when you are in a pinch for time and just want fresh, warm baked bread for dinner you can have it! Although the texture and consistency of quick breads is different from traditional yeast breads, they are a delicious alternative. Quick breads are more like a moist cake-y biscuit. And they’re delicious! Aside from how tasty quick breads are, I especially love that you can whip up a quick bread with simple pantry ingredients and have it on the table from start to finish, in just over 1 hour!
Basic Quick Bread Recipe Tips:
- Don’t have buttermilk? No problem! Substitute with 3/4 cup sour cream (or plain yogurt) plus 1/4 cup milk. Or 1 cup minus 1 tbsp milk, plus 1 tbsp lemon juice (mix the milk + lemon juice together and let sit for 5 minutes before using).
- Quick breads are best enjoyed within 1 to 3 days as they tend to dry out more quickly than traditional bread. If your bread becomes a little dry, toast it and slather on butter and jam! YUM
- Line your loaf pan with parchment paper so the loaf can be easily removed after baking.
- Don’t over mix the batter or you will end up with a very dense loaf.
- Make sure to let your loaf cool before cutting it, or you will end up with a crumbled piece of bread.
- This recipe freezes well.
