I’m not really a bread baker—proofing and kneading and babysitting starters make me all kinds of anxious. But there’s one type of bread I’ll make over and over again, the one that doesn’t require yeast or eggs and comes together in less than an hour. Yep, I’m a quick-bread queen.

It’s easy to love how, er, quickly quick breads bake. But what I love even more is that they hold up for speedy breakfasts as I rush out the door. I bake my bread on Sunday evening, then simply pack a slice in cling wrap and munch as I walk to the train the next day. One loaf can feed me for at least a week (with some snacks packed in, too), but I’m also a fan of freezing half for breakfasts down the road.
