Muffins and Quick Breads Know-How
Muffins and quick breads hold their very own magic. The basics--flour, sweetener, butter or oil, egg--take on wonderfully varied character depending on what you choose for flavorings and "extra" ingredients such as fruit or nuts. These quick-fix breads are very gratifying for beginning and expert bakers alike, as the preparation and baking are quick and the results, superb. Whether you need a hearty muffin to start the day, an elegant loaf to slice for a brunch celebration or even a savory specialty to accompany lunch or supper, you'll find the right recipe in this book.
We've divided this book into chapters devoted to Sweet Muffins; Savory Muffins; Biscuits, Scones, Popovers and Doughnuts; Quick Breads; Coffee Cakes; and Butters and Spreads. Below, we've outlined information common to all the chapters.
