Quick Breads.

The past 2 classes we had were about quick breads.  Quick bread is a type of bread that is leavened with a chemical leavener (ie baking powder and baking soda).  Quick breads include muffins, scones, biscuits, pancakes and waffles to name a few.

Honestly, the classes were a bit chaotic compared to the other pastry classes.  We had a different instructor by the way, and that meant different way of teaching and running the class.  In my opinion, it lacked the “flow” I was looking for, but there was more room to do whichever first.  Maybe because the quick breads are not as delicate to handle compared to the previous lessons.  I guess I was looking for that organization in everything (being the OC that I am).

Moving on, the quick breads, I would say are easier to do.  Though not everything came out perfectly, there were still more good than bad results.  Here’s what our group prepared for the 2 sessions.


L-R / T-B: Roast Beef with Yorkshire Pudding and Mushroom Gravy on the side; Peach Muffins; Rosemary, Olive and Parmesan Muffins; Cream Scones; Gaufrettes; Blueberry Muffins; Buttermilk Biscuits

Now all I need is a cup of tea and I’m all set! 😉
