Ok so I know this is a baking blog, and that the assumption is everything I do is from scratch (like brownies, and cookies), and most of the time that is true. But sometimes, a shortcut is necessary in life – and these Pillsbury Quick Bread Mixes are easy, quick to prepare, and most importantly – they taste great!
They come in a variety of flavors: banana, cranberry, date, cinnamon swirl, apple cinnamon, blueberry, chocolate ship, lemon poppy seed, wildberry, chocolate chip swirl, nut, pecan swirl, as well as seasonal flavors like gingerbread and pumpkin (one of my personal favorites!)
Eggs, water, and oil are all that are needed to add to the mix – then give it a good stir, and you’re ready to go! They can be made in a bundt pan, bread loaf pan, or muffin tins, and they’re a great and easy thing to whip up to bring to work or to a party
Sometimes I like to add various mix ins to them too – mini chocolate chips are great in the banana or pumpkin breads, nuts go well in the date, cranberry, and banana varieties, and raisins add another level of flavor to the pumpkin mix
The smell that fills the house while they are baking is seriously mouth-watering, and you can totally pass them off as homemade from scratch if you want to (don’t worry, I won’t tell!)
