The Definition of a Quick Bread
Some people may insist that a bread must have yeast to be labeled a bread. Quick breads are usually leavened with baking soda or baking powder. I must say that quick breads like this one is baked in a loaf, and for that reason it is generally called a bread. Also, they cannot really be a cake or a pastry because quick breads are not that delicate and sweet. I enjoy serving my quick breads as a dessert or for dinner. The only quick bread I can think of that is served as a side dish is cornbread.
