Chocolate Chip Quick Bread – Homemade In a Hurry

Chocolate Chip Quick Bread - 5 minutes of prep and you're done. Perfect for those forgotton bake sales or class parties

We’ve all been there: a last minute dinner party, forgotten bake sales or an unexpected guest. It’s times like these where we require something homemade in a hurry, like this Chocolate Chip Quick Bread from Robin Hood.

I wear many hats in my life: I’m a mom, a wife, a student, a friend and I also work from home. As much as I enjoy baking, it’s not always easy to find the time to create an amazing dessert to bring to functions or even to enjoy for myself.

When I see my friends posting their chocolate chip cookies they made with their children, or when my husband asks if I can make a cake “one of these days” it brings on a little bit of guilt.

It’s time to delegate.

I decided to hand over the baking prep to Robin – Robin Hood, that is. Robin Hood has come out with a line of quick bread mixes that require little time and produce a big impact.

Preparing Robin Hood Quick Bread only takes 5 minutes. The chocolate chip one is so goodI opted to try their Chocolate Chip Quick Bread Mix. It was really easy to prepare. Simply dump the ingredients in a bowl, mix, pour half the batter into a greased loaf pan, sprinkle 2/3 of the chocolate mixture over top, pour the rest of the batter and sprinkle the remainder of the chocolate mixture. Then you just toss it in the oven and go back to doing whatever it may be that needs your attention for 45 minutes. (In my case that was work)

Only 5 minutes to prepare - this Chocolate Chip Quick bread is great for unexpected guestsIn just 45 minutes, I was presented with a chocolate chip quick bread that looked beautiful and homemade. I let it cool for a good twenty minutes before I transferred it to a serving platter.

Ooey Gooey Goodness with this Chocolate Chip Quick Bread. It only takes a few minutes to prepare

The results were fantastic. I was left with a dessert that filled my house with the aroma of a bakery, my husband even asked if I had a new candle when he first walked in the door. (That proves that I don’t bake as often anymore.) With just five minutes of prep work, I was given a quick bread that looked like I spent a solid twenty minutes in preparing. I love that.

  7. oh that does look good! I could go for a piece right now!

  8. Box to oven in 5 minutes is super fast. I like to make homemade, but sometimes it’s easier to have it all made for you.

    • I’m usually a homemade only kind of girl too, but I have to admit – this tasted pretty awesome and I love how fast it was!

  9. This sounds great! I haven’t made bread in such a long time.

  16. I have to make this. I like that it is easy to make and not too overly sweet. I might add a glaze over top.

  17. It looks very yummy. I’m going to have to try it.

  18. Darn!! Now I’ll have to try this! Why did you post those pictures, now I’m hungry….? And I’m on a diet…. I’m gonna go cry in my corner now! Lol. 🙂

    • Hahaha! Sorry about that one 😉 Make them in muffin tins and use apple sauce instead of oil. That’s what I did the other week and it was a decent portion 😉

  19. I am pretty sure this will be a winner at the holiday bake swap. I will have to sample some first.

  20. The pictures that you took look great. They should put your picture of the finished chocolate chip quick bread on their box instead of the picture that is there now. Usually in the past when I bake something from a mix the picture looks better than my finished product.

  21. Oh!! This looks so incredibly good!! Thank you for sharing the recipe,

  22. Looks delish , i gotta look for this when i get groceries .. it would be great for those times when Hubby says whats for dessert lol
