This recipe was in the local paper recently. I love quick breads because they're so...so...so...quick!

When I was mixing the batter, I thought it was way too thick...but I persevered. I think this recipe left out some moisture. Milk, perhaps. I plan to serve it for a brunch bread and make Texas roadhouse butter to serve with it. Something tells me I will need it. Found this in the Chicago Tribune and it sounded so good.
