- 4 eggs
- 3 tablespoons powdered milk or 3 tablespoons milk, for a more moist loaf
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 2 1⁄3 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 1⁄2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- Cut butter into pieces and let soften at room temperature.
- Beat eggs lightly.
- Mix flour, baking powder and salt together.
- Add softened butter to bread machine bowl.
- Add eggs to bread machine bowl.
- Add flour mixture to bread machine bowl.
- Add sugar to bread machine bowl.
- Add vanilla to bread machine bowl.
- Use the quick bread mode on your bread machine to make the bread.
Very nice quick bread recipe. Similar in taste to pound cake but not as dense. Worked perfectly in my bread machine on quick bread setting. Would be really good with a fresh fruit topping and whipped cream or just as it is. Made for Spring PAC, March, 2013.
