Here’s the plain truth: making a quick bread takes too long in the oven (50 minutes!). If I’m going to bake something, I want it fast. Therefore, I always make quick breads and muffins in my tiny cupcake tin, making them just the right size to eat three—which is still less calories than eating one […]
