If using garlic powder and dried herbs, add them to the dry ingredients and mix well.

Step 3: Add Cheese

 

Stir in the shredded cheddar cheese until it is evenly distributed throughout the flour mixture.

Step 4: Mix Wet Ingredients

 

In a separate bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, melted butter, and eggs until well combined.

Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan and spread it evenly.

Bake for 45-55 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the bread comes out clean.

Step 7: Cool and Serve

 

Allow the bread to cool in the pan for about 10 minutes.

Transfer it to a wire rack to cool completely before slicing and serving.

Tips for Success

 

Use Fresh Cheese: Freshly grated cheese melts better and provides a superior flavor compared to

pre-shredded cheese.

Room Temperature Ingredients: Ensure that your buttermilk, butter, and eggs are at room

temperature to help the ingredients combine more smoothly.

Do Not Overmix: Overmixing the batter can result in a dense bread. Mix just until the ingredients are

combined.

Variations

 

Add More Cheese: For extra cheesy bread, add 1/2 cup of your favorite cheese, such as Parmesan or

mozzarella.

Spicy Kick: Add 1-2 tablespoons of finely chopped jalapenos or a pinch of cayenne pepper for a spicy

twist.

Herb Infusion: Experiment with different herbs like basil, oregano, or dill to change the flavor profile.

Storage

 

Room Temperature: Store the cheesy quick bread in an airtight container at room temperature for

up to 3 days.

Refrigerate: For longer storage, refrigerate for up to a week. Bring to room temperature or warm

slightly before serving.

Freeze: Wrap the bread tightly in plastic wrap and aluminum foil, then freeze for up to 3 months.

Thaw overnight in the refrigerator.

Conclusion

 

Cheesy Quick Bread is a savory delight that’s perfect for any occasion. Its rich, cheesy flavor and soft,

moist texture make it a great accompaniment to meals or a satisfying snack on its own. With simple

ingredients and easy preparation, this bread is sure to become a staple in your kitchen. Enjoy it fresh

from the oven, and share the joy with family and friends!
