  • 2 cup sugar
  • 4 cup flour
  • 2 Tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cup milk
  • 2/3 cup vegetable oil


  • Grease 6 mini loaf pans and preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Combine sugar, flour, baking powder and salt.
  • Beat eggs, milk and oil.
  • Gradually add dry mixture to wet until just moist.
  • Pour batter into pans an inch below to compensate for rise. Optional: sprinkle sugar on top.
  • Bake 40 minutes.




Make in 2 - 1 pound loaf pans or cut the recipe in half for just 1 loaf pan and bake 50 minutes or until it passes the toothpick test.
Bake into muffins, just grease miniature muffin tins and fill each to 2/3 full. Bake 12 minutes.
Store quick bread in a sealed plastic bag or covered in saran wrap at room temperature for up to 5 days.
To freeze loaves, wrap them tightly in heavy foil, saran wrap or place them in freezer bags (I like to do at least 2 to prevent freezer odors from seeping in), and freeze for up to 3 months. Bring to room temperature to serve.
