Quick Supper Bread

I hope you all had a Happy Thanksgiving!  We hosted Thanksgiving at our house with my side of the family.  Those of you that host Thanksgiving every year, my hat goes off to you.  While I enjoyed every stuffin’ moment of the preparation, it was still a ton of work!  The dinner ended up being delicious and we ate and ate and then visited, played games and then the ladies made a trip to the thrift shop and the dudes to Lowe’s and Harbor Freight.

Now that Thanksgiving is over we are full blown Christmas at the Child household.  The tree is up, the Christmas music is blaring, the house seems extra sparkly and warm, the wreaths are hanging on the windows and online shopping is a daily occurrence.    

The Christmas season is a great time at our home, but it is a also very busy.  With the kid’s regular schedule of piano, ballet, wrestling and church activities and then add on top of that recitals and concerts and the parties and activities that happen this time of year, there just isn’t a lot of time in the evening after school for making time consuming dinners.  But sometimes on those cold wintry nights, you just want soup and when you have soup, you just have to have some sort of bread with it.  Bread takes forever to make though, like 3 or 4 hours.  So what does a busy mom do? 

Well, I am going to give you a recipe that I haven’t ever seen on Pinterest or anywhere else except my mom’s dinner table while I was growing up.  It’s called Quick Supper Bread and it’s delicious.  It reminds me of my childhood.  It’s like a biscuit, except baked in a 9×13 pan, brushed with butter and cut in to squares.  The edges are deliciously crunchy and the centers soft and buttery.  It is amazing with honey or jam smeared on it.  This is definitely NOT a figure friendly recipe but everything in moderation right?   My kids love this bread and ask (more like beg) me to make it often. 

Here is the recipe..

Quick Supper Bread


  • 3 cups Flour
  • 1 teaspoon Baking powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon Salt

I hope this helps you with your busy evenings and I hope you are enjoying your holiday season so far!
