Bread is one of my favorite things to make, so I am always looking for new bread recipes. Homemade bread tastes so much better than store bought bread. Not only does it taste better, but it is usually cheaper to make my own bread.
When I saw this recipe in a cookbook my sister gave me a few years ago, I knew I wanted to try it. The fact that it is a quick biscuit type bread appealed to me. I like the fact that it was a no knead easy bread to make. This goes really well with a bowl of soup or chili, but I also serve it with meatloaf or roast. The leftovers are really good toasted and buttered.
If you have never baked homemade bread this is a good place to start. Give it a try you will love it.
Cheddar Cheese Bread
- 3 cups flour
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
- 4 ounces of cheddar cheese, cut into ½ inch cubes
- 1 ¼ cups milk
- ¾ cup sour cream
- 3 tablespoon butter melted
- 1 egg, lightly beaten
Heat oven to 350. Generously grease a 9×5 loaf pan with oil. In a bowl whisk together flour, baking powder, salt, cayenne pepper, and black pepper. Carefully stir in cheese cubes until cheese is well coated. In a separate bowl whisk together the remaining ingredients. Fold the milk mixture into the flour/cheese mixture. Stir just until combined, do not over stir. The mixture will be thick. Pour/spread into greased loaf pan. Bake for 45-50 minutes. Let cool 10 minutes and then remove from pan. Let cool one hour before slicing and serving.
