Caprese Bread

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. 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.

Preparation 20 Cook Time 40 Total Time 0:00


  • 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.
