Want a Ready-Made Breakfast All Week? Make One of These Quick Breads This Weekend
There's something deeply comforting about having a loaf of quick bread in the house. You know: a golden, toasty banana bread, or a rich, cakey chocolate bread. They're easy to bake and all you have to do is grab a slice and maybe pop it in the toaster oven, then dab it with a pat of butter and you've got a ready-made breakfast, a tasty snack, or a light dessert that pairs perfectly with a cup of hot coffee or tea.
But quick breads can be made out of so much more than just bananas or summer squash. And they run the gamut from after-dinner sweet to pair-it-with-dinner savory. You can toss in all kinds of flavors, like spinach and feta, Cheddar and bacon, chocolate chips, or even apples and rosemary. That's why we rounded up nearly two dozen of our very favorite quick breads. All of these can be made in a jiffy—and many come together in a single mixing bowl. Because they don't need the lengthy rising times that a standard loaf of bread requires, you can make the whole thing on a lazy Sunday afternoon. In fact, that's exactly what we recommend doing. Mix up one of these loaves this weekend, and give yourself a breakfast break all the following week. Whether you prefer sweet treats in the morning, or something more savory, any single one of these quick breads will make an ideal, extra-fast morning break from your usual routine. It's an easy way to treat future-you to something special all week long.
These easy breads bake quick and taste great.
