I love quick bread recipes. They require no yeast or rising time, no kneading, and they are so convenient when you want a quick bread for dinner because they take no more than an hour or so from start to finish.

In case you’re wondering what makes quick bread rise since there’s no yeast involved, it’s other leaveners such as baking powder and baking soda. Whether it’s savory or sweet, quick bread recipes are great to have in your bread recipe repertoire, and they are great for gifting.

How To Make Cheddar Quick Bread

  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and 7 ounces of the cheddar cheese. Set aside.
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk together the butter, eggs, and buttermilk, until combined. Add the dry mixture to the wet mixture and mix until all the dry ingredients are incorporated into the wet.
  3. Transfer the batter to the prepared loaf pan, spreading it out evenly with an offset spatula. Sprinkle the remaining cheese over the top and gently press it into the batter with your hand or offset spatula.
  4. Bake the bread for approximately 50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with slightly moist crumbs.
  5. Allow the bread to set in the pan for 5 minutes. Run a sharp knife around the edges and invert the bread onto a wire rack to finish cooling.
  6. Slice cooled bread with a serrated bread knife and serve.
  7. Store wrapped bread on a counter for up to 2 days.

Tip

Don’t use pre-shredded cheese in this recipe. Use a bar of cheese and shred it yourself. Pre-packaged shredded cheese has additives like anti-caking agents and mold inhibitors. One anti-caking agent is cellulose powder which is made of wood pulp and cotton. It takes 5 minutes to shred your own.
