    Keepers: My Favorite Quick Breads (Sweet Tea Cakes)

    Recipes I have made and enjoyed for "quick" tea loaf breads/cakes. Banana Bread, Pumpkin Bread, Zucchini Bread, etc. Nothing goes into this cookbook unless I have tried the recipe and loved it.

    When we have zucchini, this is the one I make most often. The whole family loves it.

    Recipe #43919

    This recipe was one of my Mom's. Easy enough to make, even for a first time baker and the results are a beautiful sweet bread with a nice texture. Enjoy it with your morning coffee or your afternoon tea!!

    Recipe #213713

    This is my version of a recipe originally found in an old issue of Taste of Home magazine. I make this each year and it is always a hit. My family likes this particular version because only contains fruit & nuts they like(cherries, dates or raisins and pecans)plus chocolate chips - no tangy sour bits of rind and also no alcohol so children can enjoy this as well. You also don't need to make this too far in advance as it requires no aging - I make this the day before Christmas Eve and serve it as part of our holiday meal. You can substitute any finely chopped nut you prefer for the pecans if they are not available in your area. They should be chopped finely, but still have some texture - do not use ground nuts. Prep time assumes you have already shelled and chopped your nuts. Cook time is 1 1/4-1 1/2 hours.

    Recipe #49659

    This delicious quick bread recipe is very moist and very sweet- more like a cake than a bread. A former neighbor of mine shared this recipe with me after we received a loaf as a holiday gift. Thank you Cheryl!

    Recipe #19658

    This is my favorite pumpkin bread recipe. It is very different from other pumpkin breads because it calls for some unusual ingredients that make it special. I almost always use freshly cooked and mashed pumpkin in this - I like to use a small pie pumpkin, which I cut into quarters, seed, and steam until tender, then remove the peel and mash. But I have used plain canned pumpkin as well - just don't accidentally use pumpkin pie filling - you need the plain puree. Prep time assumes you already have some pumpkin puree handy. The extra loaf freezes well. I have been making this for years, but originally found this in one of the "Best of the Best" series of US regional cookbooks.

    Recipe #57985

    This is very different from the usual zucchini loaves. First of all, it bakes into a round loaf and contains wheat. This is one of my favorites. One of my former neighbors used to bake a lot of items with wheat flour, and this is one of her own creations that she shared with me. Thanks Carol! Prep time allows for shredding the zucchini (I use my food processor).

    Recipe #61794

    Ah, back in the days when I was a new mother, I had to come up with creative ways to use all the extra baby food I had lying around that my young daughter refused to eat. After several attempts, I finally came up with this version.

    Recipe #61804

    This was rich and delicious. I originally got this out of a Jan/Feb 1991 issue of Eating Well magazine. It is still rich, but a lot healthier than many similar versions. I admit to sometimes skipping the toasting of the nuts part, it is delicious with toasted nuts, but also delicious if you just add them plain.

    Recipe #208607

    The addition of chopped chocolate toffee bars makes this banana loaf different from the rest! Its another recipe from Bonnie Stern, owner of a well established cooking school in Toronto.

    Recipe #61680

    This is the best banana bread I have ever had!! It is so moist, I believe it is due to the over ripe bananas and the sour cream. You must try it!!!

    Recipe #17083

    GREAT bread!! A sellout at the last church bazaar.

    Recipe #17405

    I searched and searched for a banana bread recipe with the texture that I wanted and couldn't find one. One day I decided to modify my Recipe #14187 to see if I could make up my own recipe. My family loved it and it was exactly what I was looking for so here it is. I hope you like it as much as we do.

    Recipe #20289

    Never tasted it, don't know what it's like, but sounds interesting. Not as nice as The easiest (non-machine) white bread in the world. I've tasted that, its gorgeous, as is the chef.

    Recipe #77300

    This was posted by nlb in epicurious. It is from Necessities & Temptations from the Junior League of Austin. I have never, EVER, had a banana bread this good.

    Recipe #59900

    This recipe comes from Alice Collins, a 90 year old grandmother in Ajax Ontario. She's been making this bread for friends, family, and bake sales for more than 35 years.

    Recipe #88104

    This delicious quick bread is just perfect with a cup of tea or coffee. Spicy, moist, not too sweet, great texture. Made up with some of the ingredients required for the challenging RSC 2004 Contest!
