Buttermilk bread is so delightful. The acidity of the buttermilk tenderizes and moistens the bread so you can cut back on butter and oil. This recipe uses only 4 tablespoons of butter. It also adds a slight tanginess which pairs wonderfully with sharp cheddar cheese and jalapenos.

Today’s bread is rich with flavor and is great served alone or as a side to your favorite soup. I like to gobble down huge slices for breakfast when I’m feeling dangerous. As most of you may remember, I’m not much of a fan of heavy breakfasts. But once in a while, I like to live on the wild side.

No yeast is needed for this recipe. This is a basic quick bread. Which basically means you mix it all up in one bowl, pour the batter into a loaf pan, and bake for 45 minutes. I believe the hardest part about this recipe is the aroma of the cheesy bread baking. It made my entire house smell amazing.
