Recipe Tips

- You can change the flavor and texture of this quick bread by using “add-ins”. Add 1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans, 1/2 cup raisins or dried cranberries.

- If your quick bread sinks in the middle, there may be too much liquid in proportion to the dry ingredients in the recipe – make sure you measure ingredients accurately. It may also mean that your baking powder is no longer active. To test whether your baking powder is still good, combine 1 teaspoon baking powder with 1/3 cup hot water. If it bubbles, it is still good. If not, replace it. Never buy baking powder that is past its expiration date printed on the bottom of the can.

- Bread can also be baked in three greased (5x3-inch) mini loaf pans. Bake 30-40 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.

Recipe Comments and Reviews


The recipe both looks and sounds delicious. But sadly enough the bread didn't turn out as well as I'd hoped. Maybe I did something wrong but it didn't come out as light as I'd hoped, and it also didn't look like it had mixed well and was kind of dry.. I thought I had mixed it plenty good. It wasn't as tasty as I had imagined either. It wasn't bad, It just was not as good as I had anticipated from the sound of the recipe.


Best bread ever! Everyone loves it and it comes out perfect every time.


This bread was easy to make and was moist and buttery. Really didn't need the Spiced Honey spread as it was sweet enough without.
