Onion and Buttermilk Quick Bread

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by auntchelle

Have fresh bread in under an hour. This is great buttered, still warm and served with home-made soup. Eat on day of making as these go stale quickly. My instructions are for 4 small loaves (1-2 people). You could easily make 6 or 8 smaller rolls. Australian measurements used.

This was very tasty. Mine was still a little doughy on the inside, but I believe that is because I converted it to gluten free and it is sometimes tricky to get bread of this nature right ~ it can take a couple of tries so that is what I will do. Thanks for posting this. Made for Zaar Cookbooks Tag.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 180 deg C, 350 deg F, Gas mark 4.
  2. Sift flour into a large mixing bowl then stir in soup mix and chives.
  3. Use a flat-bladed knife, and a cutting action, to mix in the buttermilk. This should form a soft dough. Use the extra buttermilk to achieve this consistency, if too dry.
  4. Lightly flour your work surface. Turn out dough and quickly knead into a smooth ball. Divide into 4 even pieces. Shape each piece into a ball.
  5. Place balls onto a floured baking tray. Allow room for each to rise. Sift a little flour over the top and make a slash, with a sharp knife, across each loaf.
  6. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until golden and cooked through.
