Many of us might consider this a type of cake but in the cooking world it is referred to as a quick bread even though that is not the overall general consensus. The cake and bread debate made it’s way to England and they looked at the shape of the offering and cooking method to distinguish between cake and bread. Bread was typically left upright throughout the cooking process while cakes were usually turned over mid way through it. With all the things in the world to debate most of us are happy to have both varieties and probably don’t mind whether they are referred to as long as they are tasty.
