125 Best Quick Bread Recipes
Among life's simple pleasures, nothing compares with the aroma and flavor of freshly baked bread. But in the course of a busy day, it's hard to find the many hours needed to prepare traditional yeast breads.
Now, with 125 Best Quick Bread Recipes, bestselling baking experts Donna Washburn and Heather Butt provide the perfect solution for anyone who wants to enjoy homemade bread in a hurry. Unlike conventional breads, which require yeast to rise before baking, quick breads get their lightness and texture from baking soda and baking powder. As a result, there's no waiting -- just mix the dough, pour it into a pan and bake!
With the recipes in this book, you can prepare a tantalizing range of breads, biscuits, loaves and snacking cakes using only a few simple steps. Baking times range from 10 minutes to just over an hour. There's no easier or faster way to enjoy savory treats such as Broccoli Cheddar Cornbread or Rosemary Scones Topped with Carmelized Vidalias, or decadent dessert loaves like Macadamia White Chocolate Chip Bread. Here you'll also find classic comfort foods such as Golden Raisin Bread and Gingerbread with Warm Lemon Sauce, as well as hearty favorites like Country Harvest Loaf.
For people with special dietary needs, there are chapters devoted to gluten-free and low-fat quick breads. And if you have a bread machine with a "quick bread," "cake" or "batter bread" cycle, you'll find recipes that are designed to take advantage of this feature.
As you'd expect from Donna and Heather, the recipes in this book are as imaginative and delicious as they are quick and easy to make. It's the perfect collection for anyone -- novice or expert -- who loves to bake.
