    Default Quick Bread Exchange Recipe?

    For my huge Christmas baking last year I made 40 (or more) mini-loaves
    of four different quick breads (without any yeast) Carrot cakes. The
    keepers are Spiced Pumpkin, Lemon Pucker, and Cranberry Apricot
    breads, and the Carrot Cakes.

    I want to replace both the Banana and the Pineapple breads because the
    Banana is troublesome in that they don't want to set well in the
    center before the sides/ends dry too much, and the Pineapple breads
    are a waste of time because they're simply tasteless.

    Thanks in advancefor suggestions for complete replacements or for
    ingredient/baking method changes for the banana and the pineapple (so
    that the pineapple flavor intensifies and the bread is more moist).

    Can't help you with banana bread - it's my nemesis, but I have lots of
    quick bread recipes - unfortunately I haven't made any of them. Some
    are dead easy, but untried - like these.

    Applesauce-Raisin Bread

    1 cup applesauce
    1/2 cup oil
    1 cup sugar
    1 3/4 cup flour
    1 teaspoon baking soda
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1 teaspoon cinnamon
    1/2 teaspoon cloves
    1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
    1 egg slightly beaten
    1 cup raisins


    Preheat oven to 325.

    Mix all ingredients and stir each time you add an ingredient. Then
    pour into a greased pan (best if it's an 8x4 inch pan).

    Cook about 1 hour or until done.


    Apple Bread
    http://www.griswoldia.com/grrecipes.html


    3 eggs
    1 c. vegetable oil
    2 c. grated unpeeled apples
    3 c. flour
    1 tsp. salt
    1 tsp. baking soda
    2 tsp. cinnamon
    1/4 tsp. baking powder
    1 c. raisins

    Mix ingredients together.

    Makes 2 - 9x13 loaf pans.

    Bake at 325F for 1 hour.

    This is moist and freezes well.

    I'm curious as to why you would post untested recipes? How would you
    know it freezes well?

    Perhaps the original recipe says it freezes well.

    Are you using fresh pineapple?

    What about replacing whatever liquid you are using in the pineapple bread
    with pineapple juice?

    Maybe use some applesauce in the banana bread mixture for more moisture?

    Methinks it may simply be that a dry-ish pineapple anything for me is
    boring. Gran makes an upside down p-cake for our boxes that I love,
    so I may be comparing my p-bread to that? We haven't done anything of
    a cherry sort, so perhaps I can come up with a good bread by replacing
    the crushed pineapple with chopped up cherry pie filling. Whatcha
    think?
    > Maybe use some applesauce in the banana bread mixture for more moisture?

    More moisture does not seem to be the problem because the breads
    remain gooey in the center while the outsides dry up. I do bake at
    least five minis at a time, so maybe I could water bath bake them for
    better-wet outters while the centers set up?
    Thanks so for taking you time to help, Picky

    The apple one is different from my pasts and usuals. I've printed to
    try it out twice, with both a sweet apple and a Granny Smith. Thanks!

    This one:
    Fresh Apple Cake
    Here is an old recipe that never goes out of style. This is a moist,
    dense cake that is wonderful served by itself or topped with a glaze
    or even drenched in rich vanilla ice cream. It is a big kid pleaser
    simply because of it's wonderful apple and spice flavors.

    Make this cake for your family. It's wonderful for breakfast or with
    a cup of coffee for a coffee break or dessert after diner.

    1 1/2 cups vegetable oil
    2 cups sugar
    3 eggs (beaten)
    2 cups plain cake flour
    1 teaspoon good vanilla extract
    1 teaspoon baking soda
    1 teaspoon baking powder
    1 teaspoon salt
    1 teaspoon cinnamon
    3 cups apples - cored but not peeled and diced small
    1/2 cup flour for coating the apples
    1 cup chopped pecans
    1/2 cup coconut flakes (optional)


    1. Sift together the cake four, sugar, soda, baking powder, salt and
    cinnamon.

    2. In your mixer beat together the vegetable oil, eggs and vanilla.
    Add the sifted ingredients and mix well.

    3. Stir in the apples and pecans. (and coconut if used)

    Butter and flour a bunt pan very well and pour in batter.

    Bake at 350 for 50 - 60 minutes.

    Dust the top with powdered sugar or glaze with powdered sugar mixed
    with a little milk.

    I've never had any problem baking banana bread (I have two favorite
    recipes and they turn out perfect every time) but I've never made
    straight pineapple bread. I've made Zucchini-Pineapple Bread, which is
    good. Zucchini Bread, even without the pineapple, goes over well at our
    house, and so does Date-Orange Bread, and Strawberry Jam Bread (a good
    one to use at Christmas time) and I also make a Pistachio Bread, using
    pistachio pudding and then has a cinnamon-sugar and nut mixture in the
    middle and on top and is a pretty green color, so a good one for
    Christmas, and is a light tasty bread. There is one you can make with
    chocolate chips and maraschino cherries, etc., that is real good (think
    it also has mashed banana in it?) and another good one is Prune Bread
    (made with baby food, believe it, or not). There are really endless
    possibilities.

    Judy, can you share these recipes, please? All three sound like
    winners and the more breads I can make, the less cookies I need bother
    with. I love making breads, but cookies I find more tedious to both
    make and package than I wish.

    1. I posted them so she'd know the apple option exists and what a
    typical recipe might look like. I have lots of quick bread recipes
    that aren't banana or pineapple, but I haven't tried them either.
    2. Apples make cake moist, so they should make quick bread moist too
    and therefore they should freeze well. Picky could figure that part
    out all by herself.
    3. I thought I was eliminating the step of going to the web to see
    what I was talking about and make a decision about if she wants to try
    an apple quick bread, search for a different recipe or move on to
    something else, because she's a grownup and can decide for herself.

    You don't sound like a very adventurous cook. You've never tried a
    recipe without someone vouching for it first? People aren't exactly
    falling all over each other giving her suggestions and you certainly
    didn't contribute either.

    In addition, sf and I have shared recipes before and I trust those
    recommendations to also know my capabilities. Perhaps your question
    of posting untried recipes was innocent, though have you anything to
    offer yourself?

    You're welcome! I have lots of other (mainly untried) recipes/ideas
    that looked good enough to me to save for the future. You have my
    email, just whistle.

    I was just looking at my recipes and I have one called Yogurt Banana
    Bread that I bet would not be dry. It calls for 1/2 plain yogurt and
    1/2 a cup of butter.... you know I'd nix the butter and go for 1cup
    full fat yogurt. Are you interested?

    Thanks, but I've made enough apple cakes that call for diced or
    chunked apple to know that style is not a personal favorite of mine,
    which is why I liked the idea of shredding the apple or using
    applesauce (which I've used in apple cake and have been pleased with
    the result).

    Thanks, I'll pop into your mail box when I've decided, but for now I'm
    thinking to get away from a banana bread entirely. I've never been a
    fan and have made it just for others that may be. I'm thinking hard
    about a trying out the cherry pie filling bread to replace the crushed
    pineapple, with lots of red food coloring in it for "the season" and
    because we do not make much else with cherries at all. I've never
    heard of a cherry bread before, but I have a can or two in the pantry
    to give it a try by next week.

    Will post the outcome, whether really good or not so. I am now away
    from my USMC "testers" and the neighbor family next door moved, so
    there will be just myself and a friend to test, and she's a sweets
    freak. Some of my earlier Marines were very faithful, critical
    testers, and I do miss them. Those "boys" transferred out even before
    I retired, but they were with me for testing prior to the 2011 gift
    boxes. Thankful for their service, both to me and to our country!

    No problem. Have you considered soaking those cherries in some booze,
    like brandy, before you use them? Did you remember you have a recipe
    called Cranberry Apricot Rum Bread?

    Not to consider an alcohol soak because I'll use pie filling, but I do
    have a very strong Rum Flavor oil I could use, and may, with your
    suggestion. I don't use that oil in the Cranberry Apricot, and not
    even the real rum because too many children are to receive so my
    daughter nixed alcohol. She can't forbid the oil, though, I'll try
    it. The recipe I've altered and will use suggests adding the pie
    filling after pans are filled, then swirling it in. I think I'll do
    that instead of adding the red coloring or paste. Could come out even
    prettier than all red, and instead of a frosting I'll only use a thin
    enough topping glaze so as to better see the swirls.

    I hope you will enjoy these recipes as much as I do. I like to make
    breads, but I'm a "cookie monster" too and could bake cookies all day
    long. I think I missed my true calling in life and should have opened a
    cookie shop about 30 years ago! )

    Date Nut Orange Bread

    1 orange
    1 cup chopped dates
    1 tsp. baking soda
    1 cup sugar
    2 tbsp. butter, softened
    1 egg, beaten
    2 cups flour
    1/4 tsp. salt
    1 tsp. baking powder
    1 tsp. vanilla
    1/2 cup chopped nuts (optional)

    Squeeze orange into a cup and fill with boiling water to make 1 cup
    liquid. Put dates in bowl, add baking soda and cover with liquid. Let
    stand about 20 minutes. Add sugar, butter, vanilla and egg and mix well.
    Add flour, salt and baking powder and beat well. Stir in nuts. Pour into
    well greased and floured 9 x 5" loaf pan. Bake at 350 for about 50
    minutes, or till tests done. Remove from pan immediately and cool
    completely before wrapping up.
    NOTE: I used the whole pitted dates and cut them up myself, as are much
    softer than the already commercially chopped ones. Also next time I will
    add some of the grated rind from the orange to give it more of a orange
    flavor.

    Strawberry Jam Bread

    1 cup butter
    1-1/2 cups sugar
    1 tsp. vanilla
    1/4 tsp. lemon extract
    4 eggs
    3 cups flour
    1 tsp. salt (I cut in half)
    1/2 tsp. baking soda
    1 tsp. cream of tartar
    1 cup strawberry jam
    1/2 cup dairy sour cream
    1/2 tsp. red food color

    Cream together the butter, sugar and flavoring. Add eggs, one at a time,
    beating well after each. Combine and add dry ingredients alternately
    with jam and sour cream, beating well after each addition. Stir in food
    coloring. Bake in two well greased and floured 9 x 5" loaf pans. Bake at
    350 for about 55 minutes, or until done. Cool 15 minutes and remove from
    pans.
    NOTE: If I'm going to be giving them away at Christmas time, I bake them
    in the smaller foil pans, rather than the bigger bread pans.

    Pistachio Sour Cream Bread

    1 pkg. Duncan Hines Butter Recipe cake mix
    1 small pkg. pistachio instant pudding
    1 cup dairy sour cream
    4 eggs, slightly beaten
    1/4 cup cooking oil
    1/4 cup water
    3 tbsp. brown sugar, packed
    2-1/2 tsp. cinnamon
    3/4 cup chopped walnuts

    In a mixing bowl, combine cake and pudding mixes, sour cream, eggs, oil
    and water. Beat well until smooth. In a bowl, toss together brown sugar,
    cinnamon and nuts. Divide batter between two well greased/floured 9 x 5"
    loaf pans, alternating layers of batter and sugar-cinnamon mixture,
    ending with sugar mixture on top. Bake at 350 for 1 hour, or until it
    tests done.

    I also have a good recipe for Yogurt Bread, which I use raspberry
    flavored yogurt in, and also a very good Apricot Bread, using dried
    apricots cut up.
