Noticed an uptick in baked breakfast goods on the blog lately? It was someone’s turn to take treats to the management team meeting last week. Cooking for coworkers is such a great way to test out new recipes without filling the kitchen with sweets. This was also a great way to use up some marmalade that was just a bit too thick.
Marmalade Quick Bread
- 2 cups all-purpose white flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 2/3 cup sugar
- 2/3 cup coarsely chopped pecans
- 1 1/2 cups milk
- 4 oz melted butter
- 1/2 cup marmalade
- 1 egg
Grease a loaf pan and set aside. Preheat oven to 350. Combine dry ingredients in a large bowl. Stir in wet ingredients and pecans. Pour into prepared loaf pan and bake at 350 until the top is golden and a knife inserted in the center comes out clean, about 35 minutes.
I bet this would work with any great jam. MMMM. 🙂
Damn – it doesn’t get much easier than THAT!! When I was growing up Quick Breads – like Banana Bread etc. – were really popular. I love the idea that, with so little effort, you get something delicious that’s can be eaten at anytime – morning, noon and night!. Plus – you can double the recipe and give one away, which always makes the recipients very, very happy. I’m planning to post a Banana Nut Quick Bread recipe & I’ve got the soft bananas all ready and waiting!

That’s one thing I do miss A LOT is having a place to take my baked goods since I’ve been freelancing from home. Much goes into the freezer and much goes to my neighbours. I’m sure this quick bread was a welcome surprise for your management team.
Looks wonderfully simple and flavorful…definitely worth a try!
Perfect timing. I made some strawberry jam that came out a bit too thick. I bet it would work here. Thanks.
Interesting use of marmalade like it
Love quick breads and I think this would be delicious with a bit of honey drizzled over it!
