Cheddar Cheese Quick Bread is a delicious and easy-to-make savory bread that doesn't require any yeast or rising time, hence the name "quick bread". The result is a dense, moist loaf packed with the sharp, tangy flavor of cheddar cheese that's perfect for those who love a good homemade bread but may not have the patience or time for traditional yeast breads. Thought to have variations in many cultures, the particular combination of cheese and bread is a hallmark of comfort food and often found in American and British cuisines.
The versatility of Cheddar Cheese Quick Bread allows it to be an excellent accompanying item for a wide array of dishes. It's a perfect match for soups, stews, and chili—its hearty texture makes it great for dunking. It also pairs wonderfully with salads, offering a satisfying contrast in flavors and textures. For breakfast, you can toast a slice and top it with a poached egg or serve it alongside scrambled eggs for a filling start to your day. It's equally as good on its own, especially warm out of the oven and slathered with butter.
Recipe for Cheddar Cheese Quick Bread:
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 1 cup sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
- 1 cup milk
- 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
- 1 large egg
1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (175 degrees Celsius) and grease a 9x5 inch loaf pan.
2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar.
3. Stir in the shredded cheddar cheese until it is well distributed throughout the flour mixture.
4. In a separate bowl, beat together the milk, melted butter, and egg.
5. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Be careful not to overmix; a few lumps are okay.
6. Transfer the batter to the prepared loaf pan and smooth the top with a spatula.
7. Bake in the preheated oven for 45 to 50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the bread comes out clean or with a few moist crumbs.
8. Feel free to top with more cheddar cheese, if desired. Allow the bread to cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then remove it from the pan and cool completely on a wire rack.
9. Serve the bread warm or at room temperature, cut into slices. Enjoy your homemade Cheddar Cheese Quick Bread as a standalone snack or as the perfect complement to your favorite dishes.
