#BundtBakers: Savory

4ae7b-bundtbakerspostI am pretty excited about this month’s #Bundtbakers theme. PJ of Seduce Your Tastebuds is hosting and selected the theme. #BundtBakers is a group of bundt loving bakers who get together once a month to bake bundts with a common ingredient or theme. We take turns hosting each month and choosing the theme or ingredient.

I’ve always wanted to be a rebel and bake a savory bundt with this group, but haven’t actually been brave enough to do so. I’m really not a good rule breaker, or liar. That’s all probably a good thing. Today was my chance to take the savory route! I wasn’t even sure if I was going to be able to make the deadline with all the craziness that’s been happening around here. Between dropped naps and teething-related fussiness it’s been hard for me to get in the kitchen as much as I’d like.

I took a recipe for Cheesy Tomato Quick Bread and doubled it to fit a bundt pan. I didn’t have enough butter so I used a combination of butter and Greek yogurt. I debated adding some sausage to the bread, too, but figured I should try it as is first. I settled with serving sausages alongside the bread for dinner. The bread not only smelled like pizza, it tasted like pizza too. Next time I’ll definitely add some chopped cooked sausage or pepperoni to it. Maybe mix in some bonus veggies, too! I wouldn’t hesitate to serve the bread with some marinara dipping sauce to really drive home the pizza vibe, either.

This bundt was Treat’s first foray into the world of gluten, and he loved this bread. Cheese is definitely one of his favorite foods, so I can’t say I was surprised. I was, however, astounded at how much of the bread he shoveled in his little mouth. He also gnawed on the sausage as if he’d never eat again. This boy loves his food!

“Tastes Like Pizza” Bundt

Ingredients:

  • 4 C flour
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1 stick butter
  • 1/2 C plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 C buttermilk
  • 2 cans (14.5 oz) diced tomatoes, drained
  • 2 C shredded cheddar cheese
  • 4 tbsp chopped fresh parsley

Steps:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a bundt pan or two loaf pans.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, baking soda, and pepper.
  3. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the butter and yogurt until smooth. Mix in the eggs and buttermilk.
  4. Slowly add the dry ingredients to the stand mixer. Mix until just combined.
  5. Using a spoon, fold in the tomatoes. Fold in the cheese. Fold in the parsley.
  6. Pour batter into the prepared bundt pan. Bake 50-60 minutes, or until a knife inserted comes out cleanly. Allow bread to cool slightly before unmolding.
  7. Bread can be served warm or at room temperature. Option to serve with marinara sauce.
