Cheddar Cheese Quick Bread Recipe
Begin by preheating your oven to 350F. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, sugar, garlic, and salt. To the center of the dry ingredients add the milk, egg, and melted butter.
Whisk the batter quickly, but do not over whisk. Note that the batter will thicken quickly! Next, add in the freshly shredded cheese. Mix or fold in the cheese with a rubber spatula for ease. After that, pour batter into a greased bread pan. Finally, bake for 45 minutes.
Remove the loaf from the oven and allow the Cheddar bread to cool for 10 minutes. Transfer the bread to a wire cooling rack. Slice, serve, and enjoy with butter or chive cream cheese!
Quick Bread Tips:
- Use freshly shredded cheddar cheese because pre-shredded has a flour/non-stick coating on it which prevents it from melting well in a loaf of bread like this.
- Get creative! Add fresh or dried herbs, like parsley, or chives. Switch up cheeses, etc.
- Quick breads are (almost) foolproof. Just watch that you don’t overdo the amount of liquids when adding flavors and ingredients.
