Sundried tomato and pesto quick bread is easy to make and like the name suggests it is quick too!
I first made quick bread or soda bread when I visited River Cottage last year, and I haven't looked back. You can put what you want in them and they always taste great.
In this recipe I lowered the amount of salt I added as I was also adding salty tomatoes and pesto. If you haven't got buttermilk then just use milk instead.
This recipe serves 2 people:
250g plain flour2tsp baking powder2g salt150ml milk or buttermilk
4 sundried tomatoes chopped
2tsps of tomato and chilli pesto
A handful of grated cheddar to top
Mix the flour, salt, baking powder and milk together to make a dough. Add the sundried tomates and pesto. You may need to add a little more flour if the dough is very wet. Make into a ball and flatten. Place on some greased proof paper and top with cheese. Score the bread and then bake at 180C for around 25 minutes.
It really is a meal in itself with some butter melted on top of the freshly baked bread.
Like the sound of this? Then you might also like my cheddar and chilli soda bread recipe.
