You rode the sourdough wave like a pro and tried your luck at garden focaccia. It was fun, but what about bread that *doesn’t* require kneading and waiting for the dough to rise? That’s more like it. Quick breads don’t require yeast for leavening, meaning you won’t need to wait for the yeast to bloom or the dough to rest. We’re talking banana bread, muffins, scones, soda bread, cornbread and even pancakes. Here are 27 quick bread recipes to try that are totally fuss-free.
