Alan’s Kitchen Tip:
You can change the flavor and texture of this quick bread by using “add-ins”. Add 1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans, 1/2 cup raisins or dried cranberries.

Alan’s Kitchen Tip:
If your quick bread sinks in the middle, there may be too much liquid in proportion to the dry ingredients in the recipe – make sure you measure ingredients accurately. It may also mean that your baking powder is no longer active. To test whether your baking powder is still good, combine 1 teaspoon baking powder with 1/3 cup hot water. If it bubbles, it is still good. If not, replace it. Never buy baking powder that is past its expiration date printed on the bottom of the can.

Alan’s Kitchen Tip:
You can bake bread in three greased (5x3-inch) mini loaf pans. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
