Flour based foods that are chemically leavened, especially muffins and items like banana breads

In the most technical sense, a quickbread is any flour based item leavened with chemical leavening as opposed to being (slowly) leavened by yeast.

This would include cakes, cookies, pancakes, and so forth. In those specific cases, however, it is more appropriate to use the specific tags: , and so forth.

Most quickbreads are baked in an oven, although some may be griddled, fried, or deep fried.

The most typical quickbreads include things like muffins, banana bread, and irish soda bread. Less typical quickbreads include biscuits and scones.
