What is a quick bread?
Quick bread are breads that rise with an ingredient other than yeast. Baking soda or baking powder are the ingredients that often create the leavening or volume in this type of baking.
What berries are good for baking bread?
Can you bake with frozen berries?
Yes, you can bake with frozen berries. Frozen berries add more moisture to the dough and you may need to add a few minutes to the baking time for your quick bread recipe.
Sometimes heavier berries like cherries and raspberries may sink to the bottom of your dough. You can dust them with flour before adding them to the batter. This trick may be used with fresh or frozen berries.
How do you make raspberry bread?
- Mix the dry ingredients, set aside.
- Use an electric mixer to blend the wet ingredients.
- Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients.
- Toss the raspberries with flour and add them to the batter.
- Bake for about an hour or until the top is lightly golden.
This quick bread recipe includes sour cream, eggs and oil in the ingredient list which make for a rich, moist bread. Be careful not to over mix the bread batter. Just blend until the dry ingredients are barely still visible.
You can make raspberry muffins with this recipe too! Simply shorten the baking time to 22-24 minutes.
