Pumpkin chocolate bread
What's a quick bread? By definition it's bread that does not rely upon yeast to rise, but rather uses baking powder or baking soda as the leavening agent. You don't have to let the dough rise or to knead it; just a quick mix of ingredients and pop it in the oven. What you gain in time saved, you give up in light, airy texture. Most quick breads are dense and very moist. Not a bad thing, if you ask me.
