What Are Quick Breads?
Quick Breads are simply breads made without yeast. They are made with baking powder and/or baking soda which are the leavening agents instead of the yeast.
They are easy to make using a very wide variety of ingredients to produce many flavors, not to mention very nutritious. Quick breads are usually sweeter than a traditional loaf of bread and are good additions to lunch boxes as they travel well. Today the breads are used as a breakfast item or with coffee or tea.
Although Quick Breads can be eaten the day they are made, they will be taste better if left overnight. Most of the breads will keep well for several days at room temperature. For longer storage, they freeze well wrapped in secure plastic wrap and then in foil. Thaw breads completely at room temperature before unwrapping and serving.
