Until last year I had no idea what Quick Breads were, but a Martha Mondays challenge meant that I made a wonderful quick bread involving pistachios. I turned to Martha again for the Daring Bakers challenge this month. A Polenta Quick Bread with Lemon and Thyme. It spoke to me as soon as I saw it. ‘Make me, make me’ it said. And make it I did!
The Daring Bakers’ February 2012 host was – Lis! Lisa stepped in last minute and challenged us to create a quick bread we could call our own. She supplied us with a base recipe and shared some recipes she loves from various websites and encouraged us to build upon them and create new flavor profiles.
As far as I can tell, quick bread is really, cake. Like pound cake. I didn’t really care for this recipe, it was a bit too sweet with the lemon and reminded me more of a lemon cake – which had gone wrong.
And now I have a box of polenta in the cupboard which is saying ‘use me, use me’ and use it I shall. Recipes to follow soon.
