These quick bread recipes are cheap, easy, and oh so delicious! Make one for breakfast, snacks, desserts, or any time you want.

My family is just a little bit obsessed with quick bread recipes.

Our daughter took quick breads as a project for 4-H, and ever since she has been a bread making machine.

And we don’t even try to stop her.

One reason I love quick breads is because they almost always knock off my list of expectations when it comes to food.

It’s gotta be…

  • quick
  • cheap
  • easy
  • use normal ingredients

Here are some of our absolute favorites.

Only The Best Quick Bread Recipes We Know You’ll Love


Easy Fresh Pear Bread

This pear bread is made from fresh pears. It was a creation I whipped up one year when our pear tree was going crazy, and it’s been a hit here (and on Pinterest!) for years.

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread

My Mama’s recipe has always been one of my favorite tastes of fall. But you don’t have to wait to October to enjoy this recipe.

Oh, and my favorite part is that it uses up the whole can of pumpkin! Because who wants to find a half cup of pumpkin hiding in the back of the fridge two weeks later? (Not me.)

Cranberry Orange Bread

Cranberry Orange Bread with cranberries and an orange

You’d think the combination of cranberries and oranges would make your lips pucker a little bit.

But it’s just not the case. You’ll wonder why you haven’t combined the two flavors more often!

And you’ll use whole berries in sauce from a can, so no wading into cold waters for cranberries is even necessary. (I assume that’s what you do from commercials??)

Fill your house with the mouth watering aroma of this Cranberry Orange Quick Bread.

Apple Bread

This apple bread recipe uses fresh apples (leave the peel on for more flavor). With a crisp crust and a moist, delicious inside, this one will be your new favorite.

Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

No list of quick bread is complete without banana bread.

And banana bread goes up an extra notch when you add chocolate! So jump on this recipe for Chocolate Chip Banana Bread.
