Herb Bùtter Qùick Bread Recipe


  • 110 g ùnsalted bùtter
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp dried parsley
  • 320 g plain floùr
  • 1 tbsp sùgar
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 415 ml bùttermilk


Grease a 20cm baking tin. A metal tin woùld be best to stop the qùick bread from sticking bùt I had to ùse a glass pyrex dish.

Pùt the bùtter in a bowl and melt in the microwave. Mix in the garlic and 1 teaspoon of dried parsley.

Poùr the bùtter into the baking dish.

Pùt the floùr, sùgar, baking powder, salt and the other teaspoon of dried parsley in a mixing bowl.

Stir in the bùttermilk to get a thick batter.

Pùt the batter in the baking dish and pat it down and into the sides of the dish.

Ùse a knife and score the bread so it makes 9 pieces.

Bake the bread in a preheated oven at 220C for aboùt 20-25 minùtes. The bread will have risen and be golden when it's ready.

Let it cool a little in the dish then tùrn it oùt onto a wire rack to finish cooling. It's delicioùs warm or cold.
