🧾 Ingredients

Cardamom Quick Bread (Tasty Easy Recipe) - Heavenly Home Cooking (2)
  • 2⅓ cups white all-purpose flour.
  • 1 teaspoon ground cardamom.
  • 1 teaspoon ground cloves. Do you want to transform this recipe into a delicious cinnamon cardamom bread? Simply swap the cloves with ½ teaspoon of ground cinnamon instead. Yum!
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda. Leavening agent. Baking soda works with the buttermilk to cause the bread to rise.
  • 2 large eggs. Binding agent. Holds the batter together. To make an eggless version, you can substitute a couple of tablespoons of flaxseed meal, ¼ cup silken tofu or almond butter. Please refer to this chart for guidance on egg substitutions in baked goods.
  • 1 cup white granulated sugar. Adds sweetness. For a no sugar option, substitute one cup of Swerve sugar replacement.
  • ½ cup safflower oil. Or another vegetable oil like canola oil. Liquified coconut oil will work as well.
  • 1 cup buttermilk. If you do not have buttermilk, you can substitute a cup of regular milk and add a tablespoon of lemon juice or white vinegar. You can also substitute one cup of plain yogurt for the buttermilk.
  • ¼ teaspoon salt. Enhances flavor.

📔 Instructions

Step 1. Preheat oven to 350°F (176°C). Grease and flour a 9 x 5 inch loaf pan or spray with baking spray. Set aside.

❓ Frequently Asked Questions

Why is this bread considered a "quick bread"?

This bread is a quick bread because it can baked immediately after mixing the batter. Its leavening agent (the ingredient that causes it to rise), in this case baking soda, does not require the proofing (time required for the dough to rest and ferment before baking) that a yeast dough requires.

How do I store this bread?

Wrap it tightly in aluminum foil. It will keep in your pantry for 1-2 days, in your refrigerator for up to a week and in your freezer for up to 3 months. Please see the frequently asked questions in our post for maple syrup bread for more detailed information about how to store a homemade quick bread.

What does salt do in quick bread?

The salt enhances the other flavors going on in this quick bread - in this case cardamom and cloves. If you do not include it, this bread will end up tasting bland.

    Do I have to use safflower oil? Will Canola oil work?
