Looking for fun holiday quick bread recipes! - Page 2

post #21 of 37

Pumpkin Bread?  I don't have a recipe anymore :(  But it was sooooo good.  Dressed up as a dessert with a glaze or else just eaten plain for a snack. 

 

I have some old bananas on the counter, I think it's about time for some banana bread - thanks for the reminder.

What about a loaf of gingerbread? This is a fav in our house. Or zucchini bread but instead of zucchini do carrots/apples/golden raisins.

great site...

It is VERY grown up.  winky.gif  And 16 frozen bananas, sounds like you need to get baking, lady!

 

Here's the recipe--I only have it written out for muffins, but it's the same for a bread.  I think you have to bake it for something like 45 minutes though.

 

Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

 

2 1/2  tsp instant coffee granules

1 tbls hot water

 

1 c softened butter

5/8 c sugar

5/8 c dry milk (Mom uses that to cut down on the sugar and add protein, if you don't want to do that just use white sugar instead)

1 egg

1 1/3 c mashed ripe bananas

1 1/2 c oat flour (I just grind up oats in the food processor)

1 c white flour

2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

1 tsp cinnamon

1 c (or more!!!) choc chips

 

 

Dissolve the coffee in the hot water.  Cream the butter, sugar, dry milk, and egg.  Add bananas and coffee. Mix the dry stuff together and add it to the wet stuff. Don’t over beat, just enough to get everything wet.

 

Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.  Bake at 350 ~ 25 min.  Check with toothpick test.

 

You can increase the banana for up to half the butter.  Or use applesauce if you run low on bananas, but you’ll need more sugar.

 

Makes ~18 muffins

 

And I'll ask my mom for the cranberry cheddar bread recipe tonight!

My mom laughed at me when I asked her for the recipe and said it's straight out of Betty Crocker.  lol.gif  I found a link to it here.

I do a Cranberry Almond Loaf -- but would love to try it with cheddar --- post the recepie wave.gif

The Cardamom tea bread sounds lovely. I'd be grateful for that recipe, if you have the time to post. Thanks!!

Blargh! The orange cinnamon bread is a regular yeast bread recipe. Still completely wonderful, but not a quick bread.

 

I do have an orange poppyseed and an orange gingerbread quick bread, now that I look.

 

Here is the cardamom tea bread:

 

1/3 cup vegetable oil

3 large eggs

1/4 c buttermilk

1 T vanilla extract

1 cup sour cream

3/4 cup sugar

 

2 1/4 c unbleached all-purpose flour

2 t baking powder

1 t baking soda

2 1/2 t ground cardamom

1/2 t salt

 

This is a bread machine recipe (use the quick bread or batter bread cycle), but you could do it by hand too. I think mix wet, cream with the sugar, mix dry. Fold together. Bake 350 for 60-75min or until cake tester comes out clean. I'd go for an 8x4 rather than 9x5 so you get a taller loaf.

 

Here's the Squash Tea Bread (OMG this one is amazing!).

 

Okay, so which orange one does everyone want?

subbing - these recipes look great!

I would so love an orange poppysed recipe.

 

 

 

 

 

 

And can I confess that I don't have a cranberry orange bread recipe? (hint, hint!)  We don't do much with breads - I do Christmas cookie plates for people.  I've already baked 93 dozen cookies in the past month (our freezer is FULL), and I only have 13 dozen more to go.  But the breads!  I'm thrilled to have new recipes to try!  Thanks ladies!

Bumping to say that I am enjoying a warm slice of the cardamom bread and a cup of tea as I write this. The tea bread is lovely, moist, not too dense and has a delicate flavour. It took me a couple of weeks to get around to making it - last week I forgot to get sour cream - but I'm glad I did finally. Many thanks again for the recipe.
