4 stars for Quick Bread

I love breakfast bread. You can give me almost any flavor and I will be your best friend. It's also the only bread I can manage to bake. Yeast is my mortal enemy it seems. I've tried several times to bake a beautiful, golden brown loaf of bread, but I always seem to fall flat, and so does the bread! Then I found breakfast bread. No yeast bread?! Perfection! This recipe is by far my favorite. You can substitute anything you want in the basic batter and it comes out great. I've done banana, sugar free banana, banana/strawberry, blueberry, peppermint/chocolate chip, and cherry, and they were all wonderful.
