Quick Bread is a type of bread that can be baked quite quickly without using yeast as a leavening agent. But, you will still end up with that wonderful fresh aroma of freshly baked bread. Best yet, you will get to enjoy the taste of homemade bread without all the fuss and wait time. Here are a few of my favorite Quick Bread recipes. Just click on the title to jump to the full recipe.

Quick Bread

Banana Bread

This Banana Bread is loaded with plenty of ripe bananas to give you lots of banana flavor in each bite! It is the best banana bread because it is made with almost double the bananas in other recipes! Not only is this the best banana bread you will ever taste, but it also comes together easily without any fancy tools or equipment.

Buttermilk Banana Bread

The perfect banana bread contains one special ingredient, buttermilk! It helps to produce this light, almost white, banana bread that cannot be achieved with a normal recipe. The flavor is spot on, with all the banana goodness you would want, but also a presentation that will leave people with questions. “How did you get it so light?” The answer is simple, buttermilk.

Triple Chocolate Banana Bread

This triple chocolate banana bread is definitely a triple chocolate threat but in the sweetest way! The bread is made with cocoa powder, milk chocolate, and semi-sweet chocolate to give it all that chocolate flavor. Then, the added bananas in the mix are the perfect complement to the chocolate.

Sourdough Banana Bread

This Banana Bread made with a sourdough starter is a light and delicious bread full of pure banana flavor that is so good you don’t even need to add butter! It is so light and the banana flavor really comes out in this bread with every bite. It is really a bread to go bananas for

I have always been a fan of banana bread, and the more ‘banana-y’, the better!

They are all great to have with your morning cup of coffee or as an easy snack to eat anytime! The added cinnamon and sugar topping for Cinnamon Banana Bread just makes this treat that much sweeter.

Toasted Coconut Chocolate Banana Bread

Toasted Coconut Chocolate Banana Bread is chocolate banana bread baked and topped with a salted caramel coconut glaze. It all starts with a triple chocolate banana bread for this recipe. The bread is made with cocoa powder, milk chocolate, and semi-sweet chocolate to give it all that chocolate flavor. Then, the added bananas in the mix are the perfect complement to the chocolate. As if that wasn’t tasty enough, the salted caramel coconut glaze makes you think you are biting into a sweet Samoa or Caramel deLite cookie!

The Best Zucchini Bread Cut into and Showing Inside Texture

Best Zucchini Bread

The Best Zucchini Bread is not an exaggerated name. This bread is moist, dense, and delightful to taste! It is also a quick bread, which means it is easy to prepare and will be quickly eaten😀. I have been on the hunt for the PERFECT zucchini bread. I had criteria that were non-negotiable. It must have the perfect, moist crumb. It must bake up beautifully, without a puddle of raw dough in the middle and the outsides being burnt, and it must be flavorful. And, most importantly, it must be easy. This final recipe is all of that, and more. Simple ingredients come together and bake up in a beautiful loaf of quick-bread perfection.

This recipe is based on one my grandma made in the 1970’s using Schmidt’s beer. No one ever told me it had beer in it, and I certainly never asked! But I do remember it having the most amazing unique flavor that I never experienced at home. I always thought grandma just had special magic when it came to baking. (Truth is, I think she does!)
