Caprese Bread

This post may contain affiliate links. See my full disclosure for further details.

I’m always looking for new ways to combine the flavors of tomato, basil and mozzarella.  So when I stumbled across the idea of Caprese Bread, I couldn’t wait to try it! I was not disappointed. 

Caprese Bread

This is a beautiful loaf of bread my friends. And it tastes as good as it looks.

It’s full of all kinds of savory flavors, with a fluffy yet moist texture. It does help to be a fan of sun-dried tomatoes.

My husband is not, so this was not his favorite. Crazy! Seriously.

So if you’re not a fan, maybe use a few less sun-dried tomatoes. This would also make great mini loaves, or even savory muffins.

Caprese Bread

Preparation 20 mins Cook Time 40 mins Total Time 1 hr


  • 1 1/4 cup of all purpose flour
  • 1 cup of bread flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
  • 1/2 cup chopped sun-dried-tomatoes
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 1/4 cups buttermilk


  1. Preheat the oven to 350. Grease a 9×5 inch inch bread pan.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Stir the mozzarella, basil, sun-dried tomatoes and minced garlic into the flour mixture.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs, oil and buttermilk. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix with a wooden spoon until well combined (the dough will be sticky.)
  4. Spread the dough evenly into the prepared pan. Bake for 40-45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
