Everyone loves quick bread for the holidays right? Well here are some quick and easy quick breads that can be given as gifts this year. These breads are different from the usual pumpkin, zucchini and banana bread. Hope you enjoy making them. Remember, quick breads are great to make and freeze. It can solve your last minute gift problems. Just wrap in tin foil and put a bow and tag on it.
To store quick breads, place in a plastic bag, seal, and store at room temperature for up to 3 days. To freeze quick bread loaves, wrap them tightly in heavy aluminum foil and then place them in plastic freezer bags, and freeze for up to 3 months. To thaw, remove loaf from plastic bag (leave in foil) and let thaw at room temperature. To re-heat, leave loaf wrapped in foil. Re-heat in a preheated 350 degrees F (180 degrees C) oven for 15 to 20 minutes or until hot.
Bake all quick breads as soon as the ingredients are assembled. since high temperatures are often called for, it is best to bake them in the center of the oven, as the heat in the top third of the oven will be too intense. If you oven tends to overheat, reduce the oven temperature by 25 degrees and increase the cooking time by 5 minutes.
Because glass bake ware retains heat better than metal bake ware, reduce the temperature of your oven by 25 degrees when using glass pans.
If you find that your bread is beginning to brown too fast, cover it with a tent of aluminum foil.
Cool quick breads in the loaf pan for 10 minutes; then remove from pan and allow to cool completely before slicing.

I liked learning about patterns of recipes, because I enjoy creating foods, and I also like being able to use things that I usually have things handy, and can make things at last moments too.
I ran out of bread today, so I tried making up two packets of dumpling mix into a loaf. It came out light and aerated. The texture looked a little rubbery, so I sliced and toasted it.
Very moist and yummy!
