Dill and Provolone Quick-Bread

Don’t skimp on the dill here: Its fragrance and color are key to making this quick-bread stand out. Served in mini-muffin form, it can even pinch-hit for the classic French gougeres, or cheese puffs

      Preheat the oven to 350F. Spritz a standard loaf pan, a 12-well standard or 24-well mini muffin tin, an 8-inch round or square baking pan, or a Bundt pan with nonstick baking spray.

      Whisk the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together in a large bowl. Gently stir in the provolone and dill.

    • 3

      Whisk the buttermilk, eggs, and butter together in a small bowl.

    • 4

      Gently stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients just until incorporated, being careful not to overmix the batter.

    • 5

      Pour the batter into the prepared pan(s). Bake until the bread is golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Timing will vary based on the pan used, but will range from approximately 20 minutes for mini muffins, 30 minutes for regular muffins, and 45 minutes to an hour for cake, loaf, or Bundt pans.

      Transfer the pan(s) to a wire rack and let cool for 10 minutes. Transfer the bread(s) to the rack, sliding a knife around the edges to loosen the bread if necessary, and cool completely.
