What Are Quick Breads

The quick in quick bread refers to a type of leavening, or rising agent, in these easy to make breads.

Quick breads are a category of baked goods that often use baking powder and baking soda to help the dough or batter rise. No yeast is used in quick bread recipes.

They don’t need time to rise or rest and can go from the mixing bowl to a baking pan and then into the oven to bake.

Beer, yogurt, and even lemon juice can be used to leaven quick breads too.

Quick breads, as their name gives away, are much quicker to make than yeast bread and have a lot less steps from beginning to end.

Quick breads can be easily enriched with fruit, nuts, and other add-ins without affecting their rise, unlike many yeast breads.

Most classic breads use yeast or good bacteria as the rising agent. Think of artisan bread, a classic French boulle, rolls, white sandwich bread, breadsticks, and croissants. These breads are often kneaded or folded and take time to rise. And they have a distinct and delicious yeasty taste.

What Are Some Types Of Quick Bread

Some common types of quick bread are muffins, loaf bread, cornbread, biscuits, scones, cakes, pancakes, waffles, and brownies, to name a few.

Today I’m sharing 5 of my favorite quick bread recipes I make often!

I double this recipe and freeze them to pop into the microwave to warm up before spreading them with butter and a bit o jam! Or I like to crumble them up in a bowl and add milk for a baked oatmeal breakfast!
