dino.: "I've always had a fascination with quick breads of various kinds, because I find it kind of cool that you can knock something up in about an hour or so, and you're set. How cool is that? Yes, they're a little more crumbly than the typical yeast bread, but it is certainly a lot of fun to make, especially if you're running on a tight schedule, and want a bit of a wow thing.
The other thing that I've noticed about quick breads is their simplicity. You can generally knock one up with things you keep around the house! They're not finicky at all, and I've had decent luck even when I'm out of one thing, and need to substitute."
