Mozzarella and Parmesan Buttermilk Quick Bread

This Mozzarella and Parmesan Buttermilk Quick Bread is a perfect side dish to your dinner!  Serve it warm out of the oven in about one hour.  No kneading, to rising, no fuss required.

I’ve been in a baking mood lately, and it makes me happy.  There’s just something about mixing together some simple ingredients and ending up with a delicious recipe.  Baking is so simple to do, with the added bonus of eating food where all of the ingredients are recognizable.  Just home made, real food.  Love that.  Not to mention how homey and mouthwatering the house smells when there is something baking.

One of my favourite home baked goodies to make are breads, but the funny thing is I haven’t learned the art of old fashioned bread making.  In fact, I use my bread machine to make most of my bread doughs that require rising, and it works just great.  But breads that take hours to make and require the dough to be kneaded and risen, are not the only option out there.  It’s true.  You can have fresh bread on your table in just over 1 hour using a quick bread recipe.

Quick breads are breads that don’t require yeast, and instead use leaveners, so there is no need for kneading and waiting for the dough to rise.  So when you are in a pinch for time and just want a fresh, warm bread for your dinner you can have it.  And quick breads that have buttermilk as an ingredient are perfect for using up that leftover buttermilk just sitting in your fridge!

And again, I have to show you a close up of the ‘new’ pan I just bought!  I’m loving collecting vintage tins for my baking – they’re so beautiful!  I used another great vintage find for my Blueberry Buttermilk Breakfast Cake.

Anyway, I hope you make this bread because it’s so easy and so delicious!  You can tailor it to your tastebuds and add different cheeses (cheddar, Monterey Jack), herbs, green onions.  Get creative!

  1. I can’t wait to try this one out… the ‘quick’ part about it def caught my eye! Thanks… I love your blog.. beautiful photos and recipes!

  2. I bread is good but a do have a crazy question where did you get that pan from it would made a nice gift when I bake the bread thank you georgette

    1. Hi Georgette! I found this baking pan at a nice little vintage second hand shop! I always keep my eye out for pans like this when I’m shopping because they’re so beautiful!

  3. Every time I search for quick breads I end up with recipes that still have to rise for 30+ minutes. I’m so happy to have found an actual quick bread recipe. I think I’m going to have to add this along with some baked ziti to next week’s meal plan!

  4. This looks good. I’m really interested to try this out…I haven’t done a loaf like this that wasn’t a rising one. (I’ve done banana bread and other quick breads, but not one that is kind of a “flavored white” if that makes any sense!).
    Love the tin. I’m desperately in search of a good soup bowl for photos. The search continues.
    p.s. I found your post via “LouLou Girls Fabulous Party” on their website.
    p.p.s. Planning on going to go pin this & check out your Pinterest page right now!

  5. Jo-anna, I love bread, and I love baking with buttermilk, so this recipe has my name written all over it! I can’t wait to try it! Thank you for sharing it with us at Treasure Box Tuesday- pinned! 🙂

  6. This bread is amazing. Sliced & toasted is beyond amazing! Makes the most wonderful garlic bread too! Sliced it, spread with garlic butter and baked for a little bit. Thank you for this wonderful recipe!

  7. This bread is fabulous and goes together very quickly. I used 3/4 cup sharp cheddar and 1/4 cup parmesan, and it was the perfect combination. We love it toasted.

  8. Hi! Is the addition of sugar correct? Is is listed under ingredients but not in the instructions.
    Please advise.

  9. Made this last night to go with dinner. I used white whole wheat flour and it turned out great! Will definitely make again.

  10. This is super yummy and my house smells incredibly good! I did not have to bake it as long as directed, but maybe that’s because I used my large toaster oven, which tends to cook things faster. This one is much much tastier than the beer cheese bread I made yesterday to go with my white chili. Thanks for sharing!

  11. I added about 1/4 cup of garlic powder to the flour mixture and upped the amount of cheese just a bit. This was amazing with homemade meatballs. 🙂

  12. I’m wondering if it might work to use an alternative for the milk? I was thinking canned coconut milk or almond milk?

    1. Hi Heather! I’m not sure, I’ve only ever made it with regular milk…but I don’t think coconut milk would work. Almond milk might work…if you try it, let me know how it turns out!

    Love this bread! I found it a little dry the first time so I added 1/4 extra buttermilk, 1/2 extra parm cheese and a little bit of garlic powder and i gotta say, sooooo delicious!!

      1. Great recipe! I was a little desperate for a good fresh bread recipe using what I had at home, and you delivered! Only downfall was I couldnt find my bread pan so I used a 8 inch circle pan. My bread was a little thin but Im sure it would have been perfect otherwise! Yummy!

  14. 5 stars
    I made it, amazing taste and perfect texture! Thanks so much. I didn’t hv buttermilk so I used yogurt 3/4 and milk 1/4. Turned out just perfect. ??

  15. 5 stars
    Delicious! Because I have numerous food allergies I had to modify. I used gluten free flour and substituted “sour” almond milk (1 T lemon juice, then add almond milk to make 1 cup). I’m going to try it next without cheese and add a little sugar to make shortcake.

  16. Excited about the cheesy buttermilk quick bread recipe. Has anyone ever used almond flour instead of the wheat flour?

  17. So easy to prepare! I was a little unsure of how it would turn out, but it was really tasty! I added a little ground pepper and a mix of parm, mozzarella and cheddar. Currently having a slice toasted with butter with my morning coffee!

  18. I’m so tired of going to reviews to see how a recipe turned out for others and instead the majority of comments are on how it “sounds” or how it “looks” and intentions.
    I want actual reviews!
