Got buttermik? After making this Cheddar Buttermilk Quick Bread, this question won’t be in my vocabulary anymore. Buttermilk will be a regular staple. I like adding it to baking and its creamy tang brings a richness to this bread.
This bread was assembled quickly, in under 10 minutes, and you can make it sweet or savoury. For ten more ideas visit The Kitchn for inspiration. I did and that’s how I found this wonderful recipe. -bvox
Cheddar Buttermilk Quick Bread
Source: The Kitchn
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tbsp white sugar
- 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup buttermilk
- 1 large egg
- 1/4 cup unsalted butter, (or olive or vegetable oil)
- 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease or spray with nonstick cooking spray a standard 9×5 loaf pan.
Whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a medium mixing bowl. Melt the butter and cool slightly. Whisk it in a separate bowl with the buttermilk and the egg.
Pour the liquid ingredients over the dry ingredients. Add the cheese and gently fold the ingredients until all the flour has been incorporated and a shaggy, wet batter is formed. Be careful not to over-mix.
Scrape the batter into the prepared pan and pat it into the corners. Bake for 45-50 minutes. When finished, the loaf should be domed and golden, and a toothpick inserted into the center should come out clean. Let the loaf cool in the pan for 15 minutes before removing and slicing.
