Quick Breads can be made in minutes, since they do not require the prolonged kneading and lengthy rising and proofing. Instead of yeast, these breads are made with rising agent such as baking powder or baking soda that begins to release gas bubbles the moment it is moistened. When making quick breads, it is important to blend the wet ingredients separately and combine then just before baking. Swift, gently mixing is essential because if the batter is beaten too vigorously, the gluten in the flour will strengthen the mixture and the texture of the loaf or muffins will be tough.

Since you promoted my books on your website I have noticed a marked increase in sales. Since I have not recently done any other promotional activity, I have to assume that this renewed interest is directly attributable to Humanmade. I simply want to express my gratitude once more and to thank you for the work you do."
