Quick bread is basically any baked product like muffins or scones or banana bread, that does not require yeast as a rising agent. Instead, one uses baking powder and/ or baking soda for that effect. They also include two sets of ingredients; the dry and the wet, bake much faster than the normal bread and easier to prepare as there is no kneading. I like how uncomplicated and versatile they are. From sweet to savoury muffins or pancakes to a delicious sweet potato loaf or pumpkin loaf, you can do so much.
I sometimes using self raising flour for my quick bread recipes as they already have the rising agent so I do not need to add any baking powder or baking soda. Self raising flour is one of my pantry essentials (posted here), it is good to have some handy. I have two preferred brands that are available in Kampala, one Kenyan and the other South African, they both work pretty well.
Let’s get started.
Preheat your oven to 180°C.
Bake the mixture in the middle rack for an hour to 75 minutes. Check at the 60 minute mark with a skewer as ovens do vary.
The kitchen smells heavenly as it bakes- the apples, spices and vanilla fill the air and makes you look forward to the final product.
Once out of the oven, let it sit for ten minutes before turning it out carefully onto a rack so it can cool.
This Apple and honey quick bread is tasty on its own, or as a nice accompaniment to your morning coffee or evening dessert with a scoop of vanilla ice-cream. Yum!
