Tips for Success

  • Follow the recipe closely. This is the most important tip, as even small deviations from the recipe can have a big impact on the final product.
  • Don’t overmix the batter. Over mixing can develop the gluten in the flour, resulting in a tough and chewy bread. Mix the batter just until the ingredients are combined, and then stop.
  • Preheat your oven. This is essential for ensuring that your bread bakes evenly.
  • Let the quick bread cool completely before slicing and serving. This will help the bread hold its shape and will prevent it from becoming too crumbly.
