I am needing to provide an array of breakfst sweets weekely for the next few months and I thought quick breads might be an easy way to get a few servings of something yummy.  I have the traditional zucchini/banana/cherry breads recipes.   I'd love a few of your own favorites if you would be kind enough to share. 

 

I look on the internet but it's not as good as having someone actually recommend a quick bread that they make for their family and that they love!

 

Thanks for the help ladies!!

Re: Quick Bread Recipes please

@lovinglife - This recipe is similar to one that I make from Duncan Hines.  I assume the pudding is instant as that is what I use in my lemon pound cake but where do you find a 4.3 oz. box of pudding.  I use the 3.4 oz.box.  What brand is the size you mentioned?
