Low Carb Quick Bread

Cheryl Chavez Recipe

By Cheryl Chavez cheryllynnchavez

8 thick slices
40 Min

I can't remember where I got this recipe, but it is one that I have had for about 14 or 15 years. I used to make it a lot for my youngest daughter.
This bread has a bit of an eggy texture and it slightly shiny in appearance. It does not rise into a tall loaf.
I made the sweet version for breakfast bread (toast or french toast) the savory version I used to make sandwiches.

Just wondering if any of you still use the bread machines that came out years ago? I found one still in the box at a yard sale. Never used, for $5. I have to get that thing out and use it. I had almost forgotten that I had it. We've moved this year and everything that I had in the kitchen, I can't find. I am disabled and do not cook that much anymore. Just simple things that I can whip up is my style. My son does most of the cooking or all of it really. HE KNOWS where EVERYTHING is. It's frustrating to know you have something but can't find it.When he is not here, I am completely lost.I have moved into two houses in the last 10 years that already had a 'ready to use' kitchen. I first moved back to my old home place after everyone had passed away. I had two of everything. I kept alot of the things my mother had. Now I am living in my mother and father laws house and again, I had two of everything. Had to weed out the best and toss or give away the ones I did not use. There is nothing any better to me than to smell a yeast bread or rolls cooking.. reminds me of school rolls we got in school. Does anyone have a quick, simple quick bread with yeast, or the school roll recipe. Thank you.

Nancy, you can type "bread machine" into the power search box at the top of the page, andyou will find plenty of recipes.
I use my bread machine all the time. NOrmally I just put it on the dough setting because I like to shape my own loaves, but right now I'm letting it do the baking, too, since my oven is on the blink. Here's a really good recipe:

How big is the bread pan that you use?

I use either 9" x 5" regular bread pans, or sometimes a "tea bread" pan that is only 4" wide but 12" long. They hold the same volume.
Other times, I shape bread dough into braids, baguettes, or "boules", and put them on baking sheets.
