This Savory Rosemary Buttermilk Quick Bread Recipe is the perfect addition to any meal. Simple to make, moist and flavorful quick bread with cheese.
It has taken me a few tries to get this savory rosemary buttermilk quick bread recipe right. I knew it would be worth it when I finally figured it out…and it is! This bread is flavorful, moist and easy to make.
The bread dough mixes up quickly and looks a little bit shaggy. This is a good thing! It’s supposed to look that way.
Savory Rosemary Buttermilk Quick Bread for Gift-Giving
I did a lot of testing on this bread because I wanted to be sure it would hold up for gift-giving. It is, of course, delicious fresh from the oven. I wrapped my cooled loaf in plastic wrap and let it sit out for a day. The day-old bread was just as moist and flavorful as the fresh loaf. I then put the remainder of the loaf in the freezer. It was in there for a week. I removed it, allowed it to thaw, and then tasted a slice. Again, very moist and still had all its flavor.
If you aren’t a rosemary lover, I’ve included some substitutions in the notes of the recipe. Anything savory would work well so go ahead and try whatever you like best. I used garlic powder but if you like fresh garlic, that would also be delicious.
Savory Rosemary Buttermilk Quick Bread Recipe
- 2 cups all purpose flour
- 2 tablespoons Sugar
- 1 tablespoon Baking Powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2-3 teaspoons garlic powder
- 3/4 cup fresh shredded parmesan cheese
- 1 cup buttermilk
- 1/4 cup canola oil
- 1 large Egg
- 1 heaping tablespoon fresh chopped rosemary
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
- In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, garlic powder, and parmesan cheese. Whisk together and set aside.
- In a smaller bowl, combine buttermilk, egg, and canola oil. Whisk briskly until fluffy.
- Pour the buttermilk mixture into the bowl containing the flour/parmesan cheese mixture. Fold together with a spatula until the flour is completely mixed in.
- Gently fold in the fresh rosemary. Batter will be very moist and shaggy.
- Pour into a 1.5 quart loaf pan that has been sprayed well with non-stick spray. Sprinkle lightly with chopped rosemary.
- Bake for 45 minutes. Loaf is done when a knife inserted in center comes out clean and outside is golden.
- Cool for 10 minutes and remove loaf from pan. Slice and serve warm.
Call me crazy, but when I was eating my first slice of this bread, I had a feeling I had tasted it before. I was halfway through the slice when I realized what this bread reminded me of…the Cheddar Bay biscuits at Red Lobster. The parmesan cheese adds a slightly different taste, but I’m betting if that was swapped out with sharp cheddar cheese, it may be a very close copy of those biscuits.
