Cheese Quick Bread

Quick Bread Recipe No Yeast Required

To make this easy quick bread recipe, you will need the following ingredients (see the recipe card below for exact amounts):

  • All-purpose flour
  • Baking powder
  • Baking soda
  • Salt
  • Garlic powder
  • Butter: I used salted butter, but feel free to use unsalted butter.
  • Buttermilk: you can also use either whole or 2% milk. Add in 2 teaspoons of either lemon juice or distilled white vinegar before adding the milk to the batter to sour the milk.
  • Cheddar cheese: Feel free to experiment with the type of cheese used in this recipe. I tend to like the classic taste of cheddar cheese, but you can spice things up with pepper jack cheese, or even think about using Parmesan cheese.
  • Eggs
  • Chives: You can substitute the chives with sliced green onions.
  • Sugar, granulated
