Some quick bread recipes

On this page, we're listing some of our favorite quick breads. Usually, when people think of quick breads they think of breads leavened with baking powder. or baking soda and buttermilk. There is an almost forgotten sourdough variant of this, ripe (or acidic) sourdough starter and baking soda. It makes great biscuits, rolls, muffins, cupcakes and even an utterly amazing chocolate cake. We include the chocolate cake recipe in an upcoming Quickbreads cookbook.

  1. Did you used to have a recipe for sourdough sweet rolls? I thought I had gotten it from this site years ago, but I haven’t been able to find it.

    1. Here I am again, almost a year later…I still can’t seem to find the recipe I used to make. It was a milk and honey sourdough recipe, which I swore came from this website, but I’ve spent hours pouring over this site and links, and even the archived site. I’m so devastated that I cannot find the recipe for these. They were insanely soft and fluffy rolls or buns, very similar to Hawaiian rolls, but I know there were no special ingredients other than flour, starter, milk, butter, honey, salt, and possibly sugar or molasses. They were heaven, and I can’t believe that even though I made this recipe at least 3 times, I never wrote it down anywhere. I wonder if I will spend the rest of my life searching for this recipe again…

      1. Hi Amber,
        Sadly, I don’t recall such a recipe. I just looked in the recipes | rolls section with no luck. We tend to not remove recipes unless we get a number of comments that “this just didn’t work” and then we tend to work the recipe over until it works for us, and our correspondent. I don’t recall such a problem with a roll recipe.

        All I can suggest at this point is you try the Internet Wayback Machine. They archive virtually every website imaginable. They have all of our content since 2002.


        PS – if you find the recipe, please let us know! We’d love to see it and try it! -M
