The baking classic, with a new cover.
The pleasure of a perfectly high-domed muffin, the butter-tender crumb of a teatime scone, a sizzling skillet of golden-crusted cornbread, a piping-hot stack of fluffy pancakes--quick breads are an everyday luxury, an affordable indulgence, a reminder of how special simple and speedy foods can be. Beth Hensperger, the master baker who turned bread machine baking into an art and artisan bread baking into a cinch, now shares her favorite recipes for sweet and savory quick breads.
Quick breads, made with leaveners that work much faster than yeast, are a snap to prepare and can be baked fresh right before a meal. Whether it’s Honey Lemon Cream Scones for breakfast, a Brandy-Glazed Zucchini Bread for a lazy brunch, Raspberry Cornmeal Muffins for the lunchbox, or a Fresh Apricot Gingerbread for dessert, this is a deliciously soul-satisfying collection of treats.
