The ingredients consisted of: All-purpose flour, buttermilk, cheddar cheese, softened butter cut into cubes, table salt, baking soda, baking powder and an egg.
The dry ingredients were added to the bowl of my stand mixer…
…and mixed through.
The cubes of butter were added next and were mixed to combine.
The shredded cheddar cheese was added next…
…and was mixed through.
The egg was added in last and was mixed until a shaggy dough ball had formed.
The dough was turned out and formed into a round loaf.
The Dough was placed on parchment paper on a jelly roll pan on the Egg which had been stabilized at 375 degrees.
The bread baked for about 45 minutes until it had reached an internal temperature of 200 degrees.
The bread had a medium crispy crust.
Unlike many soda breads which can be too dry this one was nice and moist, I am guessing due to the butter cubes in the batter.
This flavorful bread held it’s own with the very flavorful beef ribs and Cowboy Beans I was serving this day.
This bread caught everyone by surprise with just how tasty and good it was.

I chose this bread recipe to pair with the beef short ribs I would be making this day. I needed a bread that had a strong flavor to go along with the strong beef flavor from smoked beef ribs. This recipe from the KAF website fit the bill nicely. It was a recipe from their Vermont neighbors Cabot Creamery. Cabot cheeses and Cabot butter are my go to butter and cheese, so this recipe appealed to me as soon as I saw it. The end results didn’t disappoint. The bread had a nice crispy crust, a soft reasonably moist interior and a great butter and cheese flavor throughout. Everyone had at least one extra slice of this wonderful bread. It surprised everyone including me with it’s great flavor.
