Mix and Match Quick Bread

from Frozen Assets

  • 3 cups flour (whole wheat and white make a nice blend)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 teaspoons cinnamon (or ginger, cloves etc.)
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • 2 cups sugar (we cut this down and see very little difference)
  • 2 cups Mix-N-Match (see list below)
  • 3 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 cup chopped nuts or seeds (we leave these out)

Sift together dry ingredients. In separate bowl, beat eggs; add oil and sugar; cream together. Stir in Mix-N-Match and vanilla. Add dry ingredients; mix well. Stir in nuts. Spoon into two well-greased loaf pans. Bake at 325 degrees for 1 hour. When cool, wrap bread; label and freeze. Makes 2 loaves.

  1. I don't know how I missed this recipe before but going through all your recipes I found it. I have 2 loaves in the oven now using strawberries and blueberries. I love that I have so many options to use what I happen to have. Perfect!! Thanks again for another great recipe. :-)
