I read quite a bit of food blogs and a favourite that seems to pop up (atleast on the blogs that I read) would be quick breads. And honestly, I never really knew what that was. “What exactly is a quick bread?”, I thought. I saw savoury, sweet, ones filled with fruit, ones that you could pull apart, but it never occurred to me to actually look the term up. Til today:
“Quick bread is a type of bread which is leavened with leavening agents other than yeast. Quick breads include many cakes, brownies and cookies, as well as banana bread, beer bread, biscuits, cornbread, muffins, pancakes, scones, and soda bread.”
Motherfuck. Seriously? THAT’S IT?!?! I’ve made so many quick breads it’s not even funny! Geez. And this whole time I thought it was something way cooler than that… Way to burst my bubble, Wikipedia.
And to celebrate this new found (not really) knowledge, I have made you a pear, apple, flax, oat and almond quick bread.
