Quick Breads Overview

Quick breads are bread type products that are leavened with baking powder and baking soda instead of yeast. Quick breads include muffins, biscuits, scones, cornbread, and quick loaf breads like banana bread and zucchini bread. 

What are Quick Breads?

Quick breads are a category in baking referring to bread type products that are made with chemical leavening (baking powder and/or baking soda) instead of yeast.

The name “quick bread” comes from the fact that these items can be baked immediately in contrast to the long rising times that yeast breads need to go through.

Categories of Quick Breads

Quick breads are separated into two main categories: those made with batters and those made with doughs. Quick breads that are made with a batter include muffins , cornbread , and quick loaf breads (like banana bread and zucchini bread). Quick breads that are made with a dough include biscuits and scones .

Wet ingredients poured into dry ingredients

Quick Bread Mixing Methods

There are two main mixing methods utilized when making quick breads. The Muffin Mixing Method is used when making muffins, quick loaf breads, and things like pancakes and waffles. The Biscuit Mixing Method is used to make biscuits and scones.

Both the muffin mixing method and the biscuit mixing method are designed to reduce gluten development in quick breads. Mixing the batter and dough as little as possible is important so that the quick breads turn out light and tender.

Ingredients in Quick Breads

Quick breads can be made with a variety of ingredients, however most of them contain flour, fat (oil or butter), sugar, eggs, salt, and a chemical leavener (baking soda and/or baking powder). Quick breads made using the muffin mixing method will likely use a liquid fat (like vegetable oil) while quick breads made using the biscuit mixing method will be made with solid fat (like butter or shortening).

A basket of biscuits, a plate of pancakes, a stack of baked doughnuts, and a stack of white chocolate cookies

If you’ve ever seen the term ‘quick bread recipe’ and wondered, what are quick breads ? This is the guide you need! All your questions will be answered as I discuss the types of quick breads and the 4 mixing methods used to make them with plenty of examples and delicious recipes to get you baking!

As the autumn season begins, countless delicious baked goods flood the internet. I’m a willing participant in the baking and the eating of them. One of the most popular forms of baking this time of year are quick breads. But what are quick breads? Are they the delicious loafs of sweet, sticky-topped breads, are they the bundt cakes, or the cookies?

It may surprise you to learn that a quick bread is ALL those things…and more! There are a huge variety of types of quick breads and several different ways to make one, and they’re all delicious in their own way.


The term ‘quick bread’ is a way of categorizing many different types of baked goods, namely ones that rise with the use of chemical leavening agents. This can be any cake, cookie, scone, or bread recipe baked by using chemicals to create rise rather than yeast or eggs. Eggs can be used in a quick bread to create air, but there must also be a chemical leavening agent to be called a quick bread. Sorry meringues!

There are many types of chemical rising agents, but the two main leavening sources we use are…

Sodium Bicarbonate (Baking Soda) – Without getting to chemistry crazy, baking soda is an alkaline ingredient (opposite an acid) that can be used as a source of leavening in recipes that contain the necessary acidic ingredient. Some examples of those are:

The combination of these ingredients with baking soda causes an immediate, bubbling reaction and creates rise in our baked goods. It’s best not to leave these batters sitting around once mixed, or the reaction will burn out and your baked goods won’t rise.

Baking Powder – these leavening agents contain the complete set of rising tools you need for baking – both the alkaline component and the acid needed to create rise. While there are many different types of baking powder, especially when you learn about ones made for commercial producers, what we home cooks are concerned with are:

If you ever come across single acting baking powder, or have a recipe that calls for it, don’t fret. You can interchange double acting fairly easily.

Examples of Quick Breads

Now that you know quick breads are any baked good made with the use of chemical leavening agents (The origin of the name quick bread was even thought to date back to when baking powder was invented in the late 1800’s), you can see how many different things that would be! Here are a few examples:

This doesn’t even cover them all! Literally anything, sweet or savory, that is baked with the aid of baking soda or baking powder qualifies.

Types of Quick Breads – Organizing our recipes

With a category as broad as quick breads, it’s helpful to be able to organize the many types somehow. Quick breads are simply different ratios and mixing methods of the same core ingredients: flour, liquid, fat, sweetener, leavening agent, and flavor. This makes the easiest way to organize them by the mixing method.

Understanding the mixing methods can help you determine which approach will produce the desired texture and baked good you’re going for. Then the doors of creativity are literally wide open!

1. Straight Mixing Method

The straight mixing method is an easy, very common method of producing a quick bread. It’s the simple addition of wet ingredients to dry. Often referred to as the two bowl method, it’s requires combining all the dry ingredients in one bowl, all the liquid in another, and then combining the two to create a batter.

This mixing method will most often produce a batter, sometimes thick and sometimes thin. Here are a few bonus tips for using the straight mixing method:

Simple and easy right? Here are some delicious quick bread recipes using the straight mixing method!

2. Creaming Method

If you’ve ever made cookies or pound cake, odds are you’re familiar with the creaming method. It’s the creaming of sugar and butter (or other fats) together to create a fluffy aerated base for your quick breads. The tiny air bubbles that are formed in this step with the chemical leavening agent added later are essential for the texture of your final bake. Without this, cookies and cakes are often tough.

the process of creaming butter and sugar

Once the butter and sugar are fluffy, the next steps are usually adding eggs, beating until incorporated, then the flours until combined. Usually this produces a fluffier, thicker batter or even a dough, depending on the ratio of other ingredients added.

There are PLENTY of amazing quick breads you make with the creaming method, here are just a few to get your going!

3. Foaming Method

This mixing method is common for many cakes, but less commonly used for quick breads. The foaming method creates air just like the creaming method, but does so by beating eggs with sugar first instead of butter. This can be done with whole eggs, or with egg whites to create a meringue, before mixing in the other ingredients.

quick bread essay

Angel food cakes, financiers, and other cakes are great examples of this method at work, but many are not quick breads because the egg does the work of the chemical leavening agent. If there are no chemical leavening agents present, such as baking powder, soda, or even cream of tartar, then it doesn’t fall into the category of a quick bread.

That being said, the types of quick breads that use the foaming method are fantastic and fluffy, and the use of chemical leavening in addition to the aerated eggs can stabilize the structure of your baked good. This method produces fluffy batters most of the time. Try these out to see exactly what I mean.

4. The Shortening Method (Cutting Fat Into Flour)

This final method is a well known one, and used frequently all year. It’s the process of cutting cold fat, like butter or shortening, into the dry ingredients. Biscuits and scones are two of the most common quick breads that use this method as they often utilize a chemical leavening agent as well. Some pie dough recipes also fall into this category, but less often.

This process for making quick breads is often done with a food processor or pastry cutter , or if you’re like me and despise dishes, simply your fingers. Then liquid is added to bind the fat and flour, and the resulting dough can be shaped, rolled, or cut.

flour and butter combined into crumbs

This mixing method creates flaky, tender, and fluffy quick breads that are common and well loved by all of us. Here are a few delicious recipes that use the shortening method perfectly.

Why We Love All Types of Quick Bread

If it isn’t apparent yet, the sheer endless possibilities of flavor, texture, and shape of quick breads make them an easy favorite among home bakers. Quick breads are a great way to get homemade baked goods on the table in a lot less time that traditional yeast baking.

No matter which type of quick bread you choose, sweet or savory, quick straight mixed or lovingly foamed for maximum aeration, you can be sure that any potluck, party, holiday, or simple family meal will be made all the better for it. Have fun exploring your options and until next time, Happy Eating!

P.S. I’d love to hear about your favorite quick bread flavors, or if you try any of these out!

By Amy Scherber

I COUNT my plum-honey quick-bread recipe as my first professional culinary triumph -- and try to forget that it was developed in a state of panic. I was a college student and had been hired as the summer cook and housekeeper for a family that did not have a clue how inexperienced I was. I listened as I was told that I would be responsible for lunches, dinners and fresh baked sweets for breakfast, then ran to the library to read every cookbook. Thirty cookbooks and a little practice later, I learned the quick-bread secret: get the balance between the wet and dry ingredients right and you can vary the fruits, nuts and spices with abandon. This meant I could make a different quick bread every day, and I did.

Since quick breads are called ''quick'' because they are leavened with baking powder, not slow-acting yeast, check your baking powder supply -- and the expiration date on the tin -- before you start. Use double-acting baking powder, which releases its first round of leavening power when it comes in contact with moisture, and its second when it is exposed to the oven's heat.

Most quick breads, including mine, are put together using the one-two method: One set of ingredients, the wet, is added to a second set, the dry, in a bowl large enough to hold everything in the recipe.

I use unbleached all-purpose flour as the basic dry ingredient because it produces a light, tender texture. Sometimes I add a touch of whole wheat flour for its fragrance, but for fiber and toothsomeness, I prefer to round out the flour with oats. I have tried quick-cooking and instant oats and have been disappointed with both: they dissolve into the batter. But old-fashioned oats, with their big, puffy flakes, have staying power. In fact, their staying power is so strong that I soak them for a few minutes in milk before mixing them into the batter.

While the oats are soaking, I mix together the other wet ingredients. In this recipe, I use milk for its sweet flavor, but when you are experimenting on your own, you might substitute fruit juice or buttermilk. Similarly, I've chosen honey as the sweetener because I like the way it goes with so many kinds of fruit, but you can use sugar or even maple syrup. The eggs are there partly for additional leavening, partly for moisture, but mostly for richness and body, and so they should not be tampered with. Nor should you change the vegetable oil, which helps give the quick bread its characteristic moist, tender, not-too-tight structure.

When the two sets of ingredients are ready, use a wooden spoon or a rubber spatula to stir everything together gently with a few quick strokes. It's crucial to the texture of the bread that you go easy here. Barely mixed is better than fully combined. Next, add the soaked oats and the fruit.

(I use plums, which look especially beautiful because they add bursts of color, but you can try any of the fruits in my variations, or any of your choosing. You should have 14 ounces of fresh or dried fruit, the optimum amount the batter can support, and they should be cut into small pieces.)

Working once again with a quick, light touch, stir in the fruit and oats. If the mixture looks lumpy, that's fine.

Like almost all loaf quick breads, this one needs almost an hour in the oven. It's delicious at room temperature, and even better the next day. Keep the cooled loaf well wrapped, and it will be fine for about four days. It will also be fine if you freeze it for a month. In fact, I never make just one loaf; I always double the recipe and have one for now and one for later. The bake-and-freeze method works perfectly with the plum-and-honey quick bread, as well as with its three seasonal variations: orange-apricot-cardamom, peach-cinnamon and pear-ginger.

PLUMS-AND-HONEY QUICK BREADTime: 1 hour 15 minutes

Vegetable oil 3/4 cup old-fashioned (not quick-cooking) oats1 cup milk2 1/4 cups unbleached all-purpose flour1 tablespoon double-acting baking powder1 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon 1/4 teaspoon baking soda 3/4 cup honey2 large eggs, lightly beaten14 ounces black plums (about 3 large or 5 small), pitted and cut into 1/4-inch dice.

1. Center a rack in the oven, and preheat oven to 350 degrees. Oil 9-by-5-inch loaf pan.

2. In a small bowl combine oats and 1/2 cup milk, and allow to soak 5 minutes.

3. In large bowl whisk together flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and baking soda. In another bowl, whisk together remaining 1/2 cup milk, honey, 6 tablespoons oil and eggs. Pour liquid ingredients over dry ones, and stir until partly moistened. Add soaked oats and any milk remaining in the bowl and plums, and stir gently until batter is moistened. Do not overmix. Pour into pan.

4. Bake for 50 to 60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in center of loaf comes out clean. Transfer to a cooling rack for 5 minutes, then unmold. Allow to cool to room temperature before slicing. To store, wrap tightly in plastic wrap.Yield: 1 loaf; 8 to 10 servings.

A New Fruit Here, a New Spice There

The basic recipe can easily be varied with these substitutions.

Orange-apricot-cardamom: Replace the plums with diced orange and dried apricots; replace the cinnamon with 2 teaspoons ground cardamom.

Peach-cinnamon: Replace the plums with diced peaches, but keep the cinnamon.

Pear-ginger: Replace the plums with diced pears; replace the cinnamon with 1 teaspoon ground ginger.

Essay On Bread

Wheat spread during the civil war.

During the Civil War from 1861 to 1865 food was scarce in the South. In the time of war rations had to be transported long distances, so the Commissary Departments relied on foods that could be preserved easily. Wheat flour was not one of these easily preserved food and therefore was quite scarce in the South. Due to the lack of wheat flour many soldiers baked bread from any available ingredients. One of these ingredients was white cornmeal, which the soldiers used to make shortbread. Cornmeal was also favored because it could be easily carried on marches. Thus, came the common use of cornmeal to make shortbread. When times got extremely bad soldiers sometimes resorted to eating their horses and mules. In extreme desperation, there were times

Facts About Hardtack During The Civil War

Hardtack is a hard biscuit that can last for up to fifty years or more (Krause). The source of its name is disputed. Many historians agree that the name came from its texture, hard, and the British slang term for food, tack (Sheehan). Despite its hard and bland texture, it is filling and useful for feeding large amounts of people, such as soldiers. It is so effective at feeding soldiers that it was used from the time of the Romans up until the beginning of World War I (Colleary). It is also relatively easy to make, because it usually requires only three simple ingredients: flour, water, and salt. To make it, one must mix flour, water, and salt in a bowl and mix it until it turns into dough. Then, he or she rolls it out and cuts it into individual pieces. Finally, he or she bakes the pieces of hardtack for thirty minutes, flips them over, and bakes them for another thirty minutes. This simple recipe allowed the Union and Confederate armies to make trays upon trays of these biscuits, enough to supply each soldier with nine to ten of them per day (Colleary). It was used because it is easy to mass-produce, and it is filling for soldiers. However, hardtack does have a few flaws, especially regarding insects. During the Civil War, soldiers sometimes referred to them as “worm castles,”

Lab Report On Fermentation

The term fermentation refers to the chemical breakdown of a substance by bacteria, yeasts, or other microorganisms, typically involving effervescence and the giving off of heat (wikipedia). Sugars are converted to ethyl alcohol when fermentation happens. In this experiment we determined if yeast cells undergo fermentation when placed in a closed flask with no oxygen. Glucose and yeast are mixed together in a closed flask and allowed to incubate for about one hour. Then, tests are performed to determine if the products of aerobic and anaerobic respiration are present in the flasks.The citric acid cycle consists of a series of chemical reactions used by all aerobic organisms to release stored energy through the oxidation of acetyl-CoA derived from carbohydrates, fats, and proteins into carbon dioxide and chemical energy in the form of ATP (Biology). The tests detect the presence of carbon dioxide and ethanol. Carbon dioxide should be present irrespective of the type of respiration taking place, but ethanol is present only if fermentation has occurred. Another factor that can indicate whether fermentation occurred or cellular respiration occurred is the amount of glucose utilized during incubation.Fermentation uses more glucose because the process of fermentation is much less efficient than cellular respiration in terms of energy production per molecule of glucose used. The open flask (control) and the closed

After that the pre-measured amount of yeast is added. Yeast is the crucial ingredient and acts as fermenting agent responsible for gassing effect in wheat flour dough and plays important role in volume, taste and desired fine honeycomb like structure of bread crumb. Scientific name of baker’s yeast is Saccharomyces cerevisiae. It is the single largest and most commonly used biotechnology product world over. The purpose for using yeast is it can produce gas bubbles, which leaven the bread. Depending on the type of bread to be made, other ingredients are also poured into the

Bread History

Bread is an essential part of our diets and feels like it has literally been around forever. There is bread, no matter where you travel to and in many different taste, shapes, colors. Bread has been given its own culture through different countries over thousands of years. Bread is a pleasantly soft baked-good that you can find almost anywhere and in almost anything.

What Happens When Can Yeast Metabolize?

Yeast is alive because it can to metabolize and respond to environmental changes. The purpose of the first experiment was to determine whether yeast can metabolize. The bromothymol blue solution with yeast changed from blue to yellow. Bromothymol blue is an acid-base indicator that turns yellow in the presence of acid. The color change indicates that carbonic acid was formed from the reaction of water and carbon dioxide, a byproduct of metabolization. These results accept the hypothesis: if yeast can metabolize, then the bromothymol blue solution should turn yellow from the production of carbon dioxide. Only the bromothymol blue solution with yeast turned yellow, suggesting that the yeast caused the color change. The yeast consumed sugar, produced

What Is a Quick Bread?

Share this post:

Modern life is increasingly fast-paced, and we all find ourselves pressed for time on occasion. We’d all love to cook and bake the way our grandparents did, but sometimes the pressures of our lifestyles simply do not allow us.

Luckily, this faster-paced modern society has brought with it solutions to some of our problems, and developed new traditions suited to the way we live, cook and eat today.

One of these solutions is the quick bread. The name itself sounds self-explanatory, but it can mean different things in different contexts. At its simplest, a quick bread is exactly that – a type of bread or baked good that is quick to make and bake.

This could include non-leavened breads such as flatbreads, which in their most basic form require only flour, water, and salt as ingredients and can be made, theoretically, in a matter of minutes.

There is a more specific definition of quick bread however, and it is this type that we shall discuss here in this article. Namely, a type of baked good that does not rely upon yeast or eggs to leaven the dough or batter, and which instead makes use of food-safe chemical leavening agents for its aeration and rise.

These leavening agents are fast-acting, and therefore do not require any period of waiting or fermentation before the dough or batter can be baked.

This definition includes both sweet and savory products, covering everything from bread in the strict sense of the term, to cakes, biscuits and cookies.

It is a baking technique that has developed alongside our move into the modern world, and which has come to both speed up the production of traditional types of baking, and open up the way to many unique and interesting possibilities.

History of quick breads

For thousands of years, bakers relied upon the use of eggs or yeast in one form or another to leaven their products.

This was often a time-consuming process, with the yeast often taking many hours to multiply, ferment the dough, and produce enough carbon dioxide to aerate it and force it to rise. It was also an inexact science, very temperamental and sensitive to the surrounding environment.

Environmental conditions such as temperature and humidity can greatly affect the speed of fermentation, and the quality of the outcome. Variation in the quality of the ingredients can also lead to inconsistent results, and so the same product might differ day-to-day or during different times of the year.

This all changed in the middle of the 19th century however, with the development of first baking soda, and then baking powder. These are chemical leavening agents which react in a dough to produce carbon dioxide, the same gas produced by yeast in a yeasted dough.

The advantage was that they produce gas instantly once the reaction had begun, drastically cutting the waiting time by eliminating the need for fermentation.

In addition to speeding up the baking process, they also produced more consistent results. Being synthetic chemicals rather than biological organisms, their action could be more easily controlled, and bakers could be sure of reliable and predictable results every time.

Moreover, as the gas no longer needed to be trapped within the dough over an extended period of time, a strong gluten structure was not needed, further cutting the time spent mixing and kneading.

Today, our baking culture has been altered immeasurably by the development of chemical leavening agents and the rise of quick breads.

While many bread loaves are still leavened with yeast ( there are some exceptions ) for some of the reasons listed below, sweet goods such as cakes, cookies and biscuits are now almost exclusively baked using the “quick bread” technique.

Quick bread vs. yeasted bread

While the promise of speed and efficiency can be alluring, there are both advantages and disadvantages to the quick bread technique, with an increase in speed often entailing a sacrifice in some other desired quality.

This inevitable compromise therefore makes certain types of baked product more suitable as quick breads, while others are best left to a longer yeasted fermentation.

As already mentioned, the advantages of quick breads are numerous, and include their speed and consistency. They require little planning ahead, and are much less labor-intensive when compared to leavened doughs.

Environmental conditions are less of a consideration, and so reliable results can be achieved throughout the year. They also allow for the baking of unique types of products, using different flours and ingredients that wouldn’t be possible while using yeast.

Yeast fermentation does have its advantages, however. The fermentation of flour adds flavor to a dough, breaking down starches into sugars and creating many flavorful organic by-products. It increases the availability of certain nutrients, making the product more nutritious, and it can create textures that aren’t possible in a quick bread.

There is more control and flexibility in the mixing process, given that the reaction starts to occur immediately in a quick bread, but takes time to build up and develop in a yeasted bread. This can give more control to the baker in certain circumstances, allowing her to bake the bread at the ideal moment.

Yeasted fermentation is therefore desirable when nutrition is a concern, and where most of the flavor will come from the flour itself. This and its ability to create an extremely airy rise in a dough with a strong gluten network explains why it continues to be used to bake regular bread.

Sweet goods such as cakes and cookies on the other hand, which include flavorful ingredients such as fats, sugar and eggs, are the perfect candidates for baking as quick breads.

Quick bread chemistry

Quick breads rely upon the reaction of a weak base and a weak acid, which in the presence of water produce carbon dioxide. It is this carbon dioxide that aerates the dough or batter, creating a porous structure with a light, often fluffy texture.

Weak bases used as leavening agents include sodium bicarbonate, potassium bicarbonate and ammonium bicarbonate. The weak acids that these react with can include citric acid (either in chemical form or as lemon or orange juice), or tartaric acid (cream of tartar).

Baking soda is sodium bicarbonate, and if used as a leavening agent requires the addition of an acid ingredient in the mix to act as a reactant. Baking powder, on the other hand, includes dried forms of both a weak base and a weak acid, and therefore requires only the addition of moisture to start the reaction.

For this reason, a starch such as cornstarch or potato starch is included in the mix to act as a moisture absorber and to help with bulking out the mixture for easier measurement.

Learn more about how common ingredients used for baking interact with each other .

Working with quick bread

When working with quick breads, it is important to remember that the reaction between the reactants occurs as soon as they are mixed in the presence of a liquid. There is only a limited amount of these reactants, and as soon as they have exhausted their supplies they will cease to produce any more carbon dioxide.

As quick breads usually do not have a strong gluten structure, much of this gas will quickly be lost if the dough is not placed in the oven to bake as quickly as possible.

For this reason, many quick bread recipes suggest using the two-bowl technique of mixing, whereby the dry ingredients (including the leavening agents) are weighed and mixed in one bowl, and the liquid ingredients are weighed in another.

In this way, the two can be combined at the last minute, just before being placed into the oven. Recipes that also rely on rise from additional ingredients such as whisked eggs or creamed butter and sugar may require these ingredients to be prepared first and then gently incorporated into the other dry ingredients.

Regardless of the mixing method used, it is important to not over-mix the dough or batter, so as to preserve as much of the gas inside as possible.

Classic quick breads

Some popular examples of quick bread include sweet banana bread and the Southern classic cornbread. Banana bread has a more cake-like texture, making it ideal for baking as a quick bread. Corn does not contain gluten like wheat, and therefore cannot be leavened with yeast like a wheat-based loaf.

Soda bread is a great example of a more traditional wheat loaf that can be quickly produced using baking soda as the leavening agent, with buttermilk as the liquid acidic reactant.

The rise of quick breads in baking has produced some wonderful new products, and greatly increased the possibilities for both professional and home bakers alike.

You may be wondering, however, if there is any way to get the best of both worlds – to both ferment a dough with yeast for flavor and nutrition, but also speed it up a little and take advantage of its unique leavening action with the use of chemical leaveners?

The answer is yes! English crumpets were developed with the introduction of baking powder, and use a yeasted dough for a general rise, with the addition of baking powder at the last minute to create a porous, spongy texture. They are a scrumptious, comforting treat warm from the pan and spread with butter.

Get hold of some crumpet rings and try some for yourself!

Bread Baking an American Pasttime

Baking bread at home can be both fun and rewarding. There is no better way to create a wholesome and welcoming atmosphere than by baking a fresh loaf of milk bread or having guest walk into a room that smells of cooling banana bread. Although bread making has been a part of American culture for centuries today’s fast paced lifestyles has all but eliminated the art of making breads at home. However, it only takes a little flour and some kitchen know-how to revive this tradition for domestic excellence. There are two main types of breads, yeast breads and quick breads.

Yeast breads are the airy, light and fluffy breads that are used for sandwiches and dinner rolls. Quick breads generally have fruit or nuts in them and have a denser composition. One of the easiest and most rewarding types of yeast bread is milk bread. Milk bread is a great place for the novice bread maker to start. It is easy and only requires milk, flour, salt, sugar and yeast, (All Recipes, n. d. ). In addition to the simple ingredients as the baker gains experience variations on this recipe can be made to include various cheeses, herbs or grains.

Another type of yeast bread that has become a staple in kitchens across America is a simple country French bread. This bread is often long and crusty and it goes great with soups or dishes with heavy sauces. Country French bread takes more time than milk bread but by using recipes similar to the one listed on www. breadworld. com, bread makers both professionals and beginners can produce the flaky classic. Other types of breads that can be made at home include quick breads.

These breads are called quick breads because they do not require the time that yeast breads need to rise. Common quick breads include banana bread, apple date bread or sour dough.

Banana Bread is Sweet!Banana bread is a sweet, cake like bread which contains mashed bananas. Banana bread is a quick bread which typically uses baking soda as the leavening agent instead of yeast. Rather than dough, the bread is baked from thick batter, which does not require kneading.

Variants of banana bread typically use egg substitutes such as soy yogurt, tofu or, more simply, additional banana. In some recipes for banana bread, egg is the only non-vegan ingredient, making the creation of vegan banana bread fairly straightforward.

Banana bread first became a standard feature of American cookbooks with the popularization of baking soda and baking powder in the 1930s (and appears in Pillsbury's 1933 Balanced Recipes cookbook). The first banana bread recipe was thought to have been created by William Swanson. The home baking revival of the 1960s and the simplicity of its recipe led to an explosion in banana bread's popularity.

The cookbooks of the 1960s added to its popularity because they commonly listed multiple variations of bread that added fruits and nuts.

Banana bread has become one of the most common items for sale for breakfast in cafés in Australia, where the loaf is often less dense than in North America. New combinations, such as banana and walnut or banana and chocolate have been popularised in Australia.
