RECIPE: looking for quick bread recipes

carylsNovember 15, 2007

still trying to replace my lost recipes & have searched the internet to no avial: marzipan bread/loaf; cranbery almond bread (also uses marzipan; & orange chocolate crumb; the bread has orange juice & peel & then you spread a chocolate crumb mixture in the middle & on top. Would also love to have some other special recipes (other than banana, pumpkin & applesauce) I make mini loaves & give one or two with my cookie platters,
