What is Quick bread’?
A quick bread is an American term used to describe a type of bread (or baked good) which is leavened with leavening agents other than yeast e.g. baking powder and/or baking soda. They are dense but very moist baked goods made mostly by using the all-in-one method.
Examples of quick breads:
Some cakes, brownies, fruit breads like banana bread, corn bread, muffins and pancakes.
Quick breads probably originated from the United States of America at the end of the eighteenth century. Before that, baked goods were leavened with either yeast or by mixing dough with eggs. During the American Civil War, demand for food rose and bread was therefore rapidly made and leavened with baking soda instead of yeast. That was how the name came to be – “quick breads”
I fell in love with the art of baking in my freshman year of high school. I took a “Creative Cooking” class with a wonderful and quirky teacher called Ms. Minadeo, I have been baking ever since.
My feature recipe for today is my absolute favorite – Banana Bread, there are many variations of the banana bread, I will share my own version.
1/2 cup Milk
