Debi’s Mix-n-Match Quick Bread Recipe

I’m always on the look out for recipes that are quick, easy, family-friendly, inexpensive and flexible. This quick bread meets all of my criteria for a budget-worthy recipe.  Plus it’s tasty and super-simple, too!  🙂

Quick Bread Tips: When making any quick bread (banana bread, zuchini bread, cornbread, etc.) be careful not to overmix.  Stir mixture until just combined or it may become heavy and too dense.  Also, be sure to bake in the center of the oven where the temperature is the most consistent.
