ISO Summer Quick Bread Recipes

When I think of quick breads, such as pumpkin, persimmon or date, I think of the fall.
I'm wondering if anyone has any TNT recipes for more "summery" kinds of them. (like berry perhaps?)

If you've got any that are real winners, please post!
Thanks!

It's not TNT but here's one I've been hanging on to because it sounds good (especially the glaze!):

Orange Poppy Seed Bread
3 cups all-purpose flour
2 1/4 cups sugar
2 tablespoons poppy seeds, toasted*
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3
eggs
1 1/2 cups milk
1 cup vegetable oil
3 tablespoons grated orange zest
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
Orange Glaze (see recipe below)


* Toasting Poppy Seeds - Toast poppy seeds in a 350 degree oven or in a dry frying pan over medium heat. Stir occasionally, toasting only until seeds begins to brown.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease two 9x5-inch loaf pans. In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, poppy seeds, baking powder, and salt. Add eggs, milk, vegetable oil, orange zest, vanilla extract, and almond extract; stir until dry ingredients are moistened.

Pour batter into prepared loaf pans. Bake 55 to 60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Remove from oven and place on wire racks.

While still hot, using a long-tined fork, poke holes in the top of baked loaves. Pour Orange Glaze over loaves. Cool in pans for 10 minutes; remove from pans. Cool completely before slicing.

Yields 2 loaves.

ORANGE GLAZE:
3/4 cup sifted powdered sugar
1/4 cup freshly squeezed
orange juice
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon almond extract In a medium bowl, combine powdered sugar, orange juice, vanilla extract, and almond extract; stir until well blended.

Marmalady,

the strawberry bread looks so good. What size pan would I use? I don't want to use the wrong size and ruin it.

Kadesma - pan sizes are two regular - I think 8 x 4 or something close - loaf pans. For the shop, I also make 'baby cakes' using the Wilton baby loaf pans with rectangular muffin liners - cute idea for a party!

jkath, the ginger loaf is heavenly! Absolutely with tea!
