What is quick bread?
A bread leavened with a chemical agent (like baking powder or baking soda) instead of yeast or sourdough starter is called a quick bread.
Quick bread could be savory or sweet and makes an excellent addition to any meal. If you make savory bread, you can have it for soups, stews, or sandwiches. If you make sweet quick bread, you can have it as dessert or as a snack.
Why should you bake quick breads?
You are new in the kitchen and making bread from scratch is something you always wanted to try but you are intimidated by yeast breads.
You do not have the time or the skills needed for traditional yeast breads.
Maybe you are out of bread and the store is either closed or too far away. Maybe there is a winter storm, you are stuck inside and that awesome soup you have for dinner needs a slice of bread.
Quick breads are delicious when served warm, so they are perfect for cozy, hearty meals.
The breads are usually easy to make and use simple ingredients that most people have in their pantries.
As you already know, baking is science. For the bread to rise, you need to use a weak base combined with a weak acid. The weak base is either baking powder or baking soda and the weak acid is either buttermilk, lemon juice,vinegar or cream of tartar.
When these two ingredients combine, they produce a chemical reaction that releases carbon dioxide. Carbon dioxide increases the baked good’s volume and brings a lighter, porous texture to it.
This collection is meant to bring you only savory quick bread recipes that you can use to accompany meals, like soups, stews, salads, etc.
