This is a bread recipe we’ve used a few times when we want to bake a loaf while the rest of dinner cooks. It’s very amenable to substitiutions and flavor alterations, and it comes out dense, moist, and flavorful.
* 3 cups flour
* 2 tsp baking powder
* 1 tsp salt
* 1 1/2 cups buttermilk (or milk or water)
* 1/4 cup olive oil
* 1 tsp garlic powder
* fresh rosemary leaves
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Mix all dry ingredients.
Add all liquids, and stir to combine.
Shape into a loaf, place on a baking sheet, and score the top.
Bake for 40 minutes.
10 minutes before the bread is done, spread some butter on top to help it brown.
