Servings 1 loaf


  • 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.


Sharp cheddar cheese may be substituted for the parmesan.
In addition to or instead of the rosemary: 1 teaspoon dried oregano, 1/2 cup chopped olives, 1/4 cup chopped onion, 1 tablespoon fresh chopped dill, 6 bacon strips (crispy and crumbled.)
