Make Your Own Quick Bread

Quick breads are perfect for busy days; they require no yeast, no kneading, no rising time, and generally, no fancy ingredients. A loaf of quick bread is usually leavened with baking powder and/or baking soda, and bakes in an hour or so.

I’ve been trying to use up some of the kitchen cabinet and freezer inventory this month, and a can of pumpkin was the perfect inspiration for this loaf of pumpkin bread. We enjoyed it warm from the oven with butter one night with dinner, and the next day I cut thick slices of the bread and toasted it for breakfast.

Here’s the recipe from, where you can also find reader-tested recipes for applesauce bread and banana bread.  Enjoy!
