Walnut Quick Bread

Background and History

Walnut Quick Bread is a timeless baked delight that celebrates the rich, nutty flavor of walnuts. Originating from traditional quick bread recipes, this easy-to-make treat has become a staple in many households, offering a perfect blend of simplicity and irresistible taste.


2 cups all-purpose flour

1 cup chopped walnuts

1 cup granulated sugar

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 large eggs

1 cup plain yogurt

1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted

1 teaspoon vanilla extract


Preheat Oven

Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour a 9×5-inch loaf pan.

Mix Dry Ingredients

In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, chopped walnuts, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.

Combine Wet Ingredients

In another bowl, beat the eggs. Add yogurt, melted butter, and vanilla extract. Mix well.

Combine Wet and Dry Mixtures

Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Stir until just combined. Do not overmix; a few lumps are okay.

Transfer to Pan

Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan, spreading it evenly.


Bake in the preheated oven for 50-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.


Allow the Walnut Quick Bread to cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then transfer it to a wire rack to cool completely.
