The bread is BACK, you guys. It was only a matter of time before I baked up a fresh loaf to share with you. The only problem with baking up a quick bread like this? It’s gone that very same day. Even if it is just me, myself and I (well and Kya, you know, to clean up the crumbs).

This bacon parmesan quick bread is one of those recipes I’ve had in my back pocket for years whenever I either forgot to get bread for a dinner I was hosting or just desperately need bread in my life. Generally I’m too lazy to leave the house when I have a serious craving, and this recipe gets me happy in record time.

I usually resist baking bread unless it’s on a lazy Sunday morning because of all the time it takes for the dough to rise. I know I’m not doing anything while the dough is rising, but it’s excruciating to wait for the time to tick by before I have to knead the dough and finally get around to baking it.

So I became all about the quick breads instead!

I remember I used to live of French bread baguettes when I was in college. They were cheap, filling and I have an addiction to balsamic that is unreal. Of course, I also gained about 20lbs in college… I wonder why…

Thankfully my taste buds have evolved just enough to allow me to start including spice, bacon and cheese in almost anything. This easy bread has all those things – the spice from the cayenne, the cheese from the parmesan and that savory bacon that nothing else can be substituted for.

    Hello! I notice that you mention baking powder on the ingredients, but baking soda on the recipe… which one is correct? Thanks.
