Baking bread can be a particularly tricky and time-consuming endeavor. Active dry or instant yeast? How can you tell when dough is kneaded? How do you know when the bread is done? Relax! The process doesn’t have to be stressful—you don’t even need to dig out your dough hook mixer attachment from the cupboard. Instead, make a quick bread, which relies on baking powder and baking soda in place of yeast. There’s no kneading or waiting for the dough to rise either! You’ll get this delicious chocolaty bread to your dessert or breakfast table in less than one hour!
