'quick bread' on Serious Eats

Wake and Bake: Irish Tea Brack (Tea-Soaked Raisin Bread)

When people think of Irish baked goods, they often think of scones and soda bread. I love both those things, but the truth is that Ireland has an awesome bread baking tradition, ranging from hearty yeasted breads to fruit-filled quick breads. This is one of the latter—specifically a type of brack (from the Irish word brac, meaning spotted). The key is soaking raisins in tea overnight. More

From The Pastry Dungeon: Banana Oatmeal Bread

One of the downsides to being a pastry chef is fighting for oven space, especially when that surprise brunch service comes around. One way I deal with it is doing this make-ahead banana oatmeal bread. Like many baked goods, it actually benefits from a chilling period (freezing included), though you may not be able to resist this fluffy-yet-hearty quickbread straight from the oven. More

Cakespy: Pumpkin Bread Stuffed with Cookie Dough

While pumpkin bread is wonderful in its simplicity, it is possible to heighten your seasonal eating by adding a healthy helping of chocolate chip cookie dough to the batter. It gives the bread a decadently gooey center, and the spiciness of the pumpkin bread works beautifully with the brown sugar and chocolate in the cookies. Feel like gilding the lily? Go ahead, serve it with ice cream. More

Wake and Bake: Glazed Key Lime Bread

There were a million food moments over the course of that trip that more than justified my cockeyed plan. Mountainous, tender biscuits at Tupelo Honey in Asheville, North Carolina. Fried chicken at JCT Kitchen in Atlanta. Everything at Franklin BBQ in Austin. One of the simpler moments was a quick breakfast in Mobile, Alabama. A fat slice of key lime bread and a cup of hot coffee before we turned west and pushed on into the bayou. More

Wake and Bake: Fennel Fig Quick Bread

In the winter, my quick bread repertoire too easy falls into the same old banana bread rut. Sure, I might jazz it up with chocolate chips or even some nuts, but at the end of the day I'm always dreaming about the day that blueberries and peaches are back in season. Luckily fate intervened and ended my boredom, specifically by throwing a bag of figs at my face. More
