Burwell General Store Cardamom Quick Bread



Sunday mornings are my designated mornings of relaxation, as I’m sure they are for most people.   It’s my one morning a week where I’m not running around like crazy trying to get out of the house.

It’s the only morning where I get to enjoy a more lavish breakfast than a quick bowl of oats or granola bar on the run.   This typically involves me rummaging through my fridge and pantry and pulling out a whole bunch of things to make pancakes, eggs, anything I have on hand.   A delicious meal typically follows, but I always regret it after I finish eating and remember the pile of dishes in the sink.

This past Sunday I wanted to keep it simple and easy, and avoid all those dishes.

I decided to try out the Burwell General Store Cardamom Quick Bread.   I am typically not one to use quick mixes because I associate them with a long list of unfamiliar ingredients.

But Burwell’s mix was different:   a short list of ingredients I knew, and liked. I unwrapped the mix, cracked an egg, added a splash of oil and milk, gave it a stir, and the bread was ready to bake.   After 30 minutes in the oven the bread was done and ready to be enjoyed with my mug of hot tea:  the perfect Sunday morning breakfast.

An added bonus: the mix comes in it’s own baking pan, which meant no dishes to clean up afterward.   This allowed me to move on to the most important Sunday task: relaxing.

Be prepared for your own relaxing Sunday with some Burwell General Store Cardamom Quick Bread available in our store.

    I too am not fond of quick mixes but am inspired to try this one. Like that it bakes in its own pan (great for when bringing a treat to someone’s house, since I never seem to get my dishes back).  Enjoyed the photos which really captured the emotion of a relaxed
    sunday morning perhaps reading the paper.

      Thank you! This would be the perfect thing to bring to someone’s house, the pan is still adorable, but you don’t have to worry about never getting it back 🙂

  • Wow, beautiful pictures, Michelle! I have also moved away from mixes in recent years, but this looks like something completely different. I like the idea of pulling together a delicious breakfast quickly and with zero fuss.  The cardamom sounds intriguing too…

      Thanks Shelby! It was definitely very easy, and with the cardamom it felt like it was homemade and fancy (and the mix smelled amazing)
