Weekly Mix: Quick Breads

Quick breads are one of my favorite things to bake and to eat. As the name implies, they are usually quick to make, so that’s a winning recipe trait for most of us. They are also a great breakfast, snack, or even dessert. Basically, you can eat them whenever you feel justified.

Whip up one of these simple treats this weekend or whenever you’ve got a hankering for a homemade quick bread.

Cream Cheese Banana Nut Bread | Bake or Break

One of the most popular recipes here on BoB is Cream Cheese Banana Nut Bread. Well done, BoB readers! That’s an excellent choice to win a popularity contest. How can you go wrong with bananas, cream cheese, cinnamon, and nuts?

Chocolate Chunk Banana Bread | Bake or Break

Sticking with banana bread, add a little bit (or a lot) of chocolate with this Chocolate Chunk Banana Bread. Roughly chop the chocolate so you’ll get big chunks as well as tiny slivers all through the bread. Yum!

Blueberry Banana Bread | Bake or Break

Let’s just go ahead and get all the banana breads in this collection out of the way. Add fresh blueberries to a sour cream banana bread for yet another twist with Blueberry Banana Bread.

Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Quick Bread | Bake or Break

Now, we move from banana breads to a bread with no fruit at all. Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Quick Bread is a hearty quick bread packed with oats, chocolate, nuts, and a bit of cinnamon. This one is good enough and just sweet enough to be a good dessert as well.

Pear Bread | Bake or Break

If you ask Quinn about his all-time favorite things I’ve baked, I feel confident that Pear Bread would be one of the first few he would list. I love baking with pears, and this bread is one of the best ways to do that. I make this bread at least a couple of times each fall when pears are in season. It’s really amazingly good.

Cinnamon Swirl Bread | Bake or Break

Cinnamon may very well be my favorite baking spice. And, this simple Cinnamon Swirl Bread is a great use of it. It’s a very simple bread, with the focus resting on a delicious swirl of cinnamon, sugar, and nuts.

Hazelnut Date Bread | Bake or Break

Dried fruits are a great addition to quick breads, and dates are one of my favorites. Dates and hazelnuts make for a nutty and not too sweet Hazelnut Date Bread.

Strawberry Cream Cheese Bread | Bake or Break

On the other end of the sweet spectrum is this Strawberry Cream Cheese Bread. Sweetened cream cheese is swirled into a strawberry-packed quick bread for a sweet treat that you could serve up for dessert.

What’s your favorite quick bread?
