“Hunger never saw bad bread.” ~ Benjamin Franklin.

Ben was so right!  Man cannot live by bread alone . . . but it’s a start!  Here’s two quick breads ~> Ben Franklin’s Beer Bread and Irish Soda Bread.

Eat all you want . . . then make more!

Aah . . . that’s better!

Don’t hate me Nancy, but I’m not a fan of bread. Now cheese, that’s another story. 🙂

nrhatch - April 11, 2016

No worries, Jill! On our next beach picnic, I’ll bring extra cheese for you and digest your unwanted baguette!

2. brickhousechick - April 11, 2016

Oh bread, how I love thee!! You complete me. 🙂

nrhatch - April 11, 2016

Same here, Marie.
I would not willingly become Gluten Free!

I’d like to taste the beer bread. Looks good. 🙂

nrhatch - April 11, 2016

It’s yummy. And easy to make. And leftovers are terrific toasted.

anotherday2paradise - April 11, 2016

No I’m feeling peckish. 😀

nrhatch - April 11, 2016

Go ahead . . . indulge your appetite!

There’s nothing better than the taste of homemade bread ~ unless it’s the aroma of homemade bread!

nrhatch - April 11, 2016

I’m a big fan of homemade bread and its amazing aroma!

5. Val Boyko - April 11, 2016

I can smell it from here 😍

nrhatch - April 11, 2016

Nothing like the aroma of fresh baked bread wafting on the breeze!

6. Ally Bean - April 11, 2016

I haven’t made either of those breads in ages. Like them both, but will admit to getting lazier as I get older. Maybe next month, when my spare time is my own again.

nrhatch - April 11, 2016

That’s why I love these (and other) quick breads ~ no kneading and no patience required. Just measure, mix, bake and enjoy!

When I had my house on the market many years ago the agent said to me “make home-made bread when people come to look and the house will sell quickly”. Haaa, he was right 😀

nrhatch - April 11, 2016

Bread is a great marketing tool.
Baking cookies or brownies also works.

8. Val Boyko - April 11, 2016

Fresh bread with the best of butter = Heaven on a side plate!

nrhatch - April 11, 2016

No argument there, Val!

9. Under the Oaks - April 12, 2016

Bread and buttah! Pretty bread, Nancy.

nrhatch - April 12, 2016

Thanks, Pix. These recipes (plus my recipe for jalapeno cornbread) are ready to eat in under an hour. Perfect for rounding out a meal:

Homemade bread + a basic bowl of soup => a mouthwatering meal.

10. Cecilia - April 12, 2016

Bread is definitely a start 🙂 I love bread in all forms and variations. And everything that comes with it …

nrhatch - April 12, 2016

Me too!

Bread, rolls, croissants, English muffins, baguettes, toscano pane, tortillas, scones, popovers, biscuits, Yorkshire pudding . . . Wait! Does Yorkshire pudding count as a bread or a fat?!

11. L. Marie - April 13, 2016

I could definitely live on bread and butter. Sooooo love bread.

nrhatch - April 13, 2016

I love “good” bread. I steer clear of “nothing muffins” that taste like nothing, muffin!

12. Debra - April 16, 2016

I made a loaf of sourdough rosemary bread today, Nancy. I think that a good loaf of bread is just about as satisfying as anything I could eat, especially when it comes straight from the oven. Thank you for sharing two of your favorites. I will certainly give them a try. I like the encouragement to eat all I want–in my experience, that can be a little dangerous! LOL!

nrhatch - April 16, 2016

Sourdough rosemary sounds wonderful . . . and dangerous!

These are my favorite quick breads because they are quick and versatile. Time permitting, I enjoy yeast breads that need to be kneaded ~ including a garlic rosemary wheat bread.

Debra - April 17, 2016

Oh now there’s another recipe to investigate. Garlic rosemary wheat! Oh my! I think that sounds absolutely incredible!

nrhatch - April 17, 2016

You’ll find the recipe as one of the variations here:


I’ve also taken to adding 1/2 cup of oats and 1/4 less flour.
