What is a “Quick” Bread

Quick bread refers to any bread that is quick to make because it doesn’t require kneading or rising time. The reason for this is the leavener in quick breads is usually baking powder or baking soda, which when combined with moisture, starts the rising process immediately. In the case of double-acting baking powder, oven heat causes a second burst of rising power. The quick bread genre includes biscuits, muffins, popovers and a wide variety of sweet and savory loaf breads, like this one for Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread.


A homogeneous blend of milk or cream, beaten eggs, sugar, nutmeg and usually liquor of some kind. Most often used is rum, brandy or whiskey. Years ago, liquor free eggnog was served to convalescents and growing children as a tonic. Some eggnog’s are made by separating the eggs and stiffly beating the whites before adding them to the milk mixture. Commercial eggnog is alcohol free free and is available in cartons from mid-October to the end of December.


The pumpkin is a member of the gourd family. The family also includes all varieties of melon, watermelon, and squash. Its orange flesh has a mild, sweet flavor and the seeds, husked and roasted, are delicately nutty. Pumpkin seeds are commonly known as pepitas. Fresh pumpkins are available during the fall and winter. Puréed pumpkin is available canned. Pumpkin is a good source of vitamin A.
