Chocolate Chip Bourbon Pecan Quick bread is an old recipe I only made once. Judging by the looks of it, I really need to update this photo. My old notes say the bread was good, so a better photo is in order. Also, that Wild Turkey was just for baking. You need to know that.
Chocolate Chip Bourbon Pecan Quick Bread
2 cups all purpose flour (spoon and sweep) – (260 grams)
1 teaspoon baking powder
¾ baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
8 tablespoons unsalted butter (114 grams)

2 large eggs
½ cup buttermilk

5 tablespoons Bourbon, plus more as needed
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour a 9x5 inch loaf pan or spray it with flour-added cooking spray.
Mix together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
