Quick trip, quick bread

Today the boyfriend returns from a 4 day visit with his family and I couldn’t be more excited! After a long day of travel, I’m sure he will be in search of a snack. As mentioned {HERE} he has quite a sweet tooth so this Oatmeal Quickbread recipe my Aunt shared over Christmas will be perfect for his arrival. Lucky enough for me my Aunt took care of most the dirty work! As mentioned {HERE}, our family has a tradition of sharing recipe kits. These have become one of my favorite gifts and am eager to try this years batch of goodies. As promised {HERE} enjoy this week’s installment of The Lovin’ Spoonful.


First, I get the prep out-of-the-way. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees, gather materials then butter and flour a 9×5 baking loaf.


As mentioned above, my Aunt took care of combining the dry ingredients (bowl also courtesy of Aunt) so all I needed to handle were the wet. For this, I whisked together melted butter, eggs and buttermilk prior to adding to the dry ingredients.

Once fully mixed together, into the butter/floured loaf pan and off to the 350 degree oven for baking. DSC_1148

Oatmeal Quickbread

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup chopped walnut
1/2 cup miniature chocolate chips
1 1/2 cups buttermilk

1/4 cup melted butter


Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.

Stir together 2 cups all-purpose flour, 2 teaspoons baking powder, 1 teaspoon baking soda, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1 cup rolled oats.

Combine 1/2 cup granulated sugar and 1/2 cup brown sugar. Add to dry ingredients along with 1/2 cup miniature chocolate chips and 1/2 cup walnut.

In a small bowl, beat 1 1/2 cups buttermilk, 2 large eggs and 1/4 cup melted butter.

Stir wet mixture into dry ingredients just until evenly moistened.

Scrape into a buttered and floured 9×5 loaf pan and bake about 50 minutes.
