Blueberry Banana Bread

Blueberry Banana Bread

Walnuts, pecans and chocolate chips are probably three of the most common add-ins for banana breads. I know that they’re my default choices, although I’ve been known to branch out into other add-ins from time to time, opting for peanut butter swirls and coconut instead of crunchy nuts and rich chocolate chips. This time around, I opted to add in some fresh blueberries to create ... Read More »

Cherry Lime Bread

Cherry Lime Bread

If you’ve ever had a glass of cherry limemade, you know what a good combination cherry and lime can be. I used that combination as inspiration for this Cherry Lime Bread. This quickbread is sweet, and zesty, with flavors that you don’t see too often together. It is moist and tender, with a texture that hints at that of a pound cake. There are two ... Read More »

Coffee Chocolate Chip Banana Breads

Coffee Chocolate Chip Banana Breads

Bananas pair surprisingly well with coffee. Even big coffee chains have had banana-flavored coffee drinks over the past couple of years, mixing bananas with espresso, chocolate and/or caramel. I don’t think that these drinks were as popular as some on the menu, but I also bet that not enough people gave them a fair shake. Since I’ve been playing with Starbucks Via lately, I decided ...

Candied Ginger and Grapefruit Loaf

┬áThis is another one of those recipes that manages to use grapefruit juice instead of lemon or orange juice, both of which appear far more commonly in quickbread recipes, just like the Grapefruit Meringue PieI put together recently. The sweet, cake-like quickbread is very similar to recipes for Meyer Lemon and Blueberry Bread and Orange Cranberry Bread, but uses fresh grapefruit juice and candied ginger ... Read More »

Double Chocolate Zucchini Bread

Double Chocolate Zucchini Bread

Once zucchini come into season, they try to take over. They overrun gardens, markets and refrigerators. Fortunately, they are very versatile and can be prepared in a variety of ways. You can add them to all kinds of savory dishes, from sides of roasted vegetables to soups. And, just like carrots (and lettuce!), zucchini has a mild enough flavor and texture that it can be ...

Lemon Coconut Bread

Lemon Coconut Bread

One of my favorite quickbread recipes is the Coconut Bread from bills, Bill Granger‘s restaurant in Sydney, Australia. It’s one of those recipes that works so well as-is that I am never really tempted to stray from making the recipe just as it is written. So, when I had the idea to add some lemon flavor into the bread for a really bright and spring-like ... Read More »

Whole Wheat Popovers

You don’t need a popover pan to make popovers. A muffin tin will work perfectly well, even though you will only need to use 6 of the muffin. The only real reason to have a popover pan is that it gives you a good incentive to make popovers more often. I know this to be true because I got one not too long ago and ... Read More »

Apricot, Orange and Chocolate Chip Loaf

Apricot, Orange and Chocolate Chip Loaf

At first glance, you might not think that chocolate and apricots go together – or, at least, several of my tasters seemed to have this opinion when I brought this quickbread out. They were converted to the combination immediately after their first bite (at which time I pointed out that chocolate-dipped dried apricots are actually quite common). Fruit and chocolate make a great combination in ... Read More »
