10 Quick Bread Recipes

There is something about making your own bread that is so satisfying.  I love making basics like homemade white breads and easy French breads, but sometimes I don’t have the time!  I have grown to love the smell of yeast, but it just takes so much time to have to wait for it to activate.  Then you have to wait for the dough to rise.  And sometimes you have to wait for it to rise again!  That’s just too much time for this bread loving momma!

Do you love bread and hate waiting as well?  Perfect!  Here are 10 quick bread recipes for the bread lover!

Quick breads to try


1. // Pumpkin Pecan Bread (with Mascarapone swirl) // I’m positive that this pumpkin pecan bread is perfect all year round, not just in the fall.  Oh and don’t forget the mascarapone swirl!


2. // Lemon Coconut Quick Bread // I bet this bread tastes like “Take me to the tropics” or “I’ll have another margarita in paradise.”  But that’s just a guess.


3. // Cherry Almond Quick Bread // Cherry and almond make the perfect combination in this deliciously glazed quick bread.


4. // Apple Struesel Bread // Apples are great in almost anything, and if you add struesel it just makes it that much better.

I like making bread but I love making bread that is ready within an hour or two.  These 10 quick bread recipes will have you in and out of the kitchen and enjoying a slice in no time!  The main question is – which bread are you going to try first?
