Oh, and I think I've found the answer to my quick bread woes...
Easier to portion out, easier to freeze extra (as if we ever had any left after a couple of days), more even baking. And any quick bread recipe can be used for muffins instead.
And no more trying to be environmentally conscious by using unlined muffin tins or the silicone cups --- it's paper liners from now on.
Any favorite recipes to share?
