I have another book by the same author so when I saw that she came out with a new one, I had to have it. This one, like the other one I have is a sure winner in my cookbook collection!

I've always loved dessert quick breads of any kinds but they've always been too tricky for my level of expertise. I am happy to announce that armed with the recipes and knowledge provided in this little cookbook I managed to bake my first truly successful quick bread (I did the Coconut Coffee Nut Bread).

There is a lot of variety in the book so I am sure everyone will find at least a couple of recipes to try that they've never seen before. The recipes themselves are clearly explained and easy to follow even for me.

Highly recommend this book if you are into baking breads, desserts and all of that delicious goodness!

Recently I purchased the author's Fresh Fruit Quick Breads eBook. I enjoyed that offering so I visited the author's website (link provided in back of the eBook) where I decided to sign up for her newsletter. Her site mentioned a new book would be released soon. The author reached out to me, and asked if I would review her next book, so I have a small disclaimer to disclose. I received a review copy (PDF) of Decadent, Sinful Quick Breads as a subscriber at [...]

Decadent, Sinful Quick Breads, the new addition to her family of baking eBooks follows the same clean and clear layout and presentation that I found in Fresh Fruit Quick Breads — an extensive Table of Contents, considerable information describing what to bake, ingredients, adjustments for taste, toppings (sauces and syrups), as well as tips to lower the calorie and fat content. Decadent, Sinful Quick Breads includes photos of many recipes, which offers additional inspiration when deciding what to fix. The voice of her books gives you the feeling of sitting in your kitchen having a conversation with a good friend. I encourage you to consider adding it to your eBook recipe collection.

These book is absolutely fabulous. My husband is a Brit so I made him scones and lemon curd. He was one happy man.

I cannot wait for my grandson who I cook with to come over and make muffins, breads and custard..No more Birds custard at our house. He will get the biggest charge making carmel and chocolate sauces for his brother and grandfather. We will have so many things to chose from. How about making syrup?

The recipes are well written and easy to follow, Joyce has one again proved she knows her way around a kitchen. The pictures are wonderful and you get to see the finished product.
My favorite picture is the mini scones with all the different curds and custards.

Get this book and make your family smile.

This is a great book! Not only does it have excellent recipes, but it is also a fun read. What I love about this book is that the recipes are quick and easy and the ingredients are all common ones that are already in my kitchen.

This recipe book not only covers easy to make quick breads (YUM!), but also muffins, scones, and bread pudding. The instructions are step-by-step and so detailed that it really is not possible to make an error. That is important to me. It is frustrating to make a recipe and have it flop because the directions were not clear. This recipe book leaves nothing out and leaves nothing to chance.

I know that I will be using this cookbook often and am grateful to have it!

I wish I could say that I liked Joyce Middleton's latest, Decadent, Sinful Quick Breads (In the Pantry Quick Breads) as much as I did her previous book, Fresh Fruit Quick Breads (In the Pantry Quick Breads), but I don't. While Joyce does include a properly formatted Table of Contents that interfaces correctly with the Kindle Navigation Menu, she also includes a wealth of sauces, syrups, scones, muffins, and bread pudding recipes that really aren't "quick breads." There are actually only fifteen quick bread recipes, with the remainder of the book given over to extraneous stuff and frankly, some of them just do not sound attractive to me. Cilantro in what would otherwise be a lovely Orange Cardamom bread or chocolate chips in Orange Cranberry just don't sound appealing. Others feel like afterthoughts. Walnut Maple Bread, for example contains a mere 1/4 cup of maple syrup, not close to enough to give a true maple flavor. (Do remember Grandma lives in Vermont and cooks with Maple all the time.)

I would love to tell you that I found some of the Muffin recipes more attractive, but if anything I found them less so. Some of the flavor profiles that Joyce used, such as Peanut Butter Cayenne Muffins, may be very nice in other things (this is the basic flavor profile of the peanut sauce that accompanies Thai Chicken Satay) but the idea of this as either a bread or a dessert just doesn't do much for Grandma.

Grandma found not a single recipe that sparked her interest or her taste buds enough to even give it a try. Only you can decide whether you'll feel the same. Here is the Table of Contents, since Joyce didn't provide a Look Inside feature:

DESSERT SAUCES
Curd Lemon Curd Variations
Custard Custard Sauce Variations
Filling
Cream Cheese Filling Variations
Sauces
Butterscotch Sauce (Easy Caramel Sauce)
Chocolate Sauce (White or Dark)
Peanut Butter Sauce
DESSERT SYRUPS
Coffee Syrup
Green Tea Syrup
Lemon Whiskey Syrup
Orange Syrup
DESSERT QUICK BREADS
Coconut Banana Almond Bread
Coconut Coffee Date Nut Bread
Coconut Lemon Mint Bread
Coconut Orange Basil Bread

Grand Marnier Chocolate Cumin Bread
Orange Cilantro Cardamom Bread
Orange Cranberry Chocolate Chip Bread

Whiskey Walnut Bread
Walnut Cherry Rum Bread
Walnut Coffee Lemon Bread
Walnut Maple Bread
Walnut Pumpkin Cinnamon Bread
Raisin Wine Bread
DESSERT MUFFINS
Black and White Chocolate Peppermint Muffins
Chocolate Chili Muffins
Chocolate Caramel Espresso Muffins
Chocolate Orange Cheese Muffins
Dark Fudgy Chocolate Muffins
Double Chocolate Custard Pistachio Muffins
Peanut Butter Muffins
Peanut Butter Cayenne Muffins
Peanut Butter Curry Muffins
Peanut Butter Raisin Chocolate Chip Muffins
Peanut Butter Turmeric Ginger Muffins

Vanilla Green Tea Muffins
Vanilla Lavender Muffins
DESSERT SCONES
Mini Filled Scones
Cream Scones Variations
DESSERT BREAD PUDDING

NOTE: At the time that I posted this review no Look Inside feature was available for the book. I assume that Joyce has since added it.

I bought this cookbook hoping for one recipe to try. Instead I found the entire book wonderful. I love the recipes so much that I baked three kinds of muffins the first day. I am making the bread puddings tomorrow. I found the recipes easy to follow and alter. This has become a staple in my kitchen.

Thanks Joyce for putting together quick bread recipes that don't remind me just of the ones my Grandmother made. I like the use of different and unusual seasonings. Who would have thought to put Orange, Cilantro, and Cardamon into one quickbread, but it was great. I'm still getting used to the idea of having recipes on my Kindle. I'm used to the old Betty Crocker book with the flour, eggs and heaven only knows, all over the pages. It's fun to look through the offerings on Kindle and see new things and old things put together in an interesting and easy to read format, which is what I think Joyce did with this book. I'm a sucker for cinnamon and immediately made the Walnut Pumpkin Cinnamon Bread. It was great! I happened to have about 6 small liquor bottles, about the size the airlines have and used them to make variations of sauces mentioned in the book. I had a good time and loved the inspiration Joyce's book gave me to try new things. I like the book...I bought the first one Joyce offered in her series, and I'm looking forward to the next one. No telling what gastronomical excitement she can brew up next.

What can I say? I love cookbooks. I haven't had the time to try any of these recipes, but I'm looking forward to it.

My firat recipe from this book was "Aunt Alice's Bread Pudding" served with a vanilla custard with just a hint of almond extract. Baked in a 8" by 8" pyrex dish, I finished the pudding in two days. Today I baked the Strawberry Delight Bread Pudding, between my wife and I, without any custard etc., more than half of the pudding is gone. It's just so good it doesn't need anything with it.

I will be trying more of the recipes soon.

Great book.
