Some things just go together naturally like peanut butter and jelly or chips and dip. Well, this recipe goes great with the lasagna soup that I wrote about last week. This recipe comes from one of my favorite blogs, The Southern Lady Cooks, who happens to be a fellow Kentucky blogger. She has some wonderful recipes over there and all that I have tried turn out great.
You could easily modify this bread to suit your tastes by adding different cheeses or even some cooked crumbled bacon. Mmmm! I may have to try it with bacon.
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper
1 cup buttermilk (I used powdered buttermilk and water. The measurement conversion is on the back of the package.)
1/2 cup butter or margarine, melted
Prepare a loaf pan by spraying with non-stick spray and preheat your oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, combine the flour, cheese, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, pepper, and powdered buttermilk.
In another bowl, combine the water (for the powdered buttermilk), butter and eggs. When that is mixed, add it to the dry ingredients; stir just until combined and make sure there are no dry spots in the batter.
Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan and bake for 35 to 40 minutes. Cool for about 10 minutes and turn out of the pan.
