I’ve been in a baking mood lately, and it makes me happy. There’s just something about mixing together some simple ingredients and ending up with a delicious recipe. Baking is so simple to do, with the added bonus of eating food where all of the ingredients are recognizable. Just home made, real food. Love that. Not to mention how homey and mouthwatering the house smells when there is something baking.
One of my favourite home baked goodies to make are breads, but the funny thing is I haven’t learned the art of old fashioned bread making. In fact, I use my bread machine to make most of my bread doughs that require rising, and it works just great. But breads that take hours to make and require the dough to be kneaded and risen, are not the only option out there. It’s true. You can have fresh bread on your table in just over 1 hour using a quick bread recipe.
Quick breads are breads that don’t require yeast, and instead use leaveners, so there is no need for kneading and waiting for the dough to rise. So when you are in a pinch for time and just want a fresh, warm bread for your dinner you can have it. And quick breads that have buttermilk as an ingredient are perfect for using up that leftover buttermilk just sitting in your fridge!
This recipe for Mozzarella and Parmesan Buttermilk Quick Bread is so easy to make, and is amazing with soups, chilis, or roasted chicken. It’s moist, tender and full of cheesy flavour. It’s divine served up warm smothered in butter!
And again, I have to show you a close up of the ‘new’ pan I just bought! I’m loving collecting vintage tins for my baking – they’re so beautiful! I used another great vintage find for my Blueberry Buttermilk Breakfast Cake.
Anyway, I hope you make this bread because it’s so easy and so delicious! You can tailor it to your tastebuds and add different cheeses (cheddar, Monterey Jack), herbs, green onions. Get creative!
