Cheddar and Dill Buttermilk Quick Bread

This Cheddar and Dill Buttermilk Quick Bread is light and flaky and bursting with flavour!  This bread requires no kneading and no rising, and you can have it on your table in about one hour.

I have developed a thing for quick breads.  Who knew you could make a loaf of bread in just over one hour, with no kneading and no rising?  Warm bread on the table in time for dinner?  Yes.  Please.

Buttermilk quick breads have simple base ingredients that are the perfect platform for many different flavour combinations.  I have been busy experimenting and am discovering many delicious variations.  First I made this Mozzarella & Parmesan Buttermilk Quick Bread, and then last week I made this Cheddar & Dill Buttermilk Quick Bread.  Oh the deliciousness.

I love dill, and the addition of this herb to this bread doesn’t disappoint!  The combination of cheddar cheese and fresh dill in this bread is SO good.

Savoury quick breads like this one are perfect to serve alongside any grilled meat, soup, or chili.  They’re also great the next day if you toast them and slather them with butter…oh yum!
