Introduction: Lazy Man Buttermilk Bread Recipe | Quick and Easy

About: Hey y'all! My name is Lydia and I want to share my passion for cooking/baking with everyone!

Hey guys today is all about buttermilk bread or I should call this dessert bread. This buttermilk bread is great when you need some carbs and you really don’t have time to make a loaf of bread. It’s slightly sweet, has a creamy buttermilk flavor from the full fat buttermilk (I never recommend using anything else) and just great to eat warm with butter and honey or even jam or Nutella. It’s so soft and delicious, definitely not your typical loaf of bread because there is no yeast in it. The ingredients are simple, the bread comes together super-fast and it’s all around amazing.

Step 1: Ingredients

  • 2 cups (200 g) all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup (96 g) sugar
  • 1 ½ teaspoons (6 g) baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon (2 g) baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon (5 g) salt
  • 1 cup full fat buttermilk
  • 1 large egg
  • ¼ cup (55 g) unsalted butter, melted

Step 2: Preheat Oven and Prepare Loaf Pan

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (177 C). Spray a 9x5 loaf pan with nonstick cooking spray.

Step 3: Whisk Dry Ingredients

Whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a medium mixing bowl.

Step 4: Combine Wet Ingredients

In a separate bowl (or measuring cup) whisk melted butter with the buttermilk and the egg.

Step 5: Add Wet to Dry

Pour the liquid ingredients over the dry ingredients. Gently fold all the ingredients until all the flour has been incorporated and a shaggy, wet batter is formed. Do not over mix the batter!

Step 6: Add Batter to Prepared Pan

Add the batter into the prepared pan and smooth the top.

Step 7: Bake

Bake for 45-50 minutes. Let the loaf cool in the pan for 10 minutes before removing and slicing.

Step 8: Enjoy!

Enjoy warm with whatever toppings you'd like. I love mine with butter and honey.
