Cheese Quick Bread

Not a Christmas craft sale post lol… at least today!

With being so busy preparing for the craft sale, I haven’t had a lot of time to make bread or anything like that. When I was starting to prepare dinner last night I realized I didn’t have any bread to have with dinner. That reminded me about a quick cheese bread I like to make.

Big secret here lol….do you know what the secret ingredient is in this bread that just makes it taste better? It’s mustard!!! I add about 2 tbsp. to the batter when I add the wet ingredients!


Here are my ingredients. The only thing is that for some reason I put baking soda in the picture instead of the baking powder… strange… I am again going to blame it on exhaustion lol… thankfully I noticed before I made the batter!

I didn’t take as many pictures as I usually do. Probably because I was trying to do 2 things at once and it messed me up.

The first thing to do is to put the cup of milk in the microwave with the 2 tbsp. of butter/margarine for about 1 minute, to warm up the milk a bit and melt the butter.

While the milk was heating I whisked together the flour, baking powder, salt, grated cheese garlic powder in the bowl of my stand mixer.

I added the milk mixture, the egg and the mustard.

Then mixed it until it was just combined, finishing off by mixing it with my spatula.

I spread the mixture into my parchment paper lined loaf pan,,,

And baked it at 350 degrees for about 1 hour, until the top was nicely browned and it was cooked through.

I let it stand in the pan for about 5 minutes (not as long as I should have) before slicing it for dinner.

Date & Nut Loaf

For as far back as I can remember, this has been one of Dillon’s favourites. He always swore up and down he didn’t like anything with nuts in it, but he loves this loaf cake.

His grandmother used to make loaf after loaf of this each Christmas. I don’t make anywhere near that many loaves and I don’t think it should be relegated to just being eaten at Christmas…. so I make it all year round!

Homemade Cinnamon Rolls

That smell!!!! We eat them all year but I still find something “Fall” about the smell of homemade Cinnamon Rolls baking. It is almost like comfort food for your nose lol!

Cinnamon rolls are easier to make than you might think and taste so much better than those you pick up at the grocery store!

Braided Egg Bread

With the cooler weather making it’s annual come back, having the smell of freshly baking bread seems to fit right in. This time I made another family favourite… a Braided Egg Bread.

This is an easy to make bread, it just takes a little longer to prepare the bread dough because the eggs need to be added slowly. But it is well worth that little bit of extra time!

It smells great baking and tastes even better… especially straight from the oven!

Applesauce Oatmeal Quick Bread

It is nice to have different quick breads in the “rotation” to choose from when making treats for Chris and Dillon’s lunches for work. While banana bread will always be the number one go to for quick breads in their opinion, this one comes in a close second. It is full of delicious applesauce, oatmeal and cinnamon, to name a few ingredients, and is very quick and easy to prepare!

It disappeared so quickly I didn’t even get a chance to take a better picture lol!

“Fake” Sour Dough Bread

Chris LOVES sour dough bread but I haven’t started any of the sour dough starter I need to make the real stuff. I really should get on that but I always forget. While this isn’t the real stuff by any means, it is still a good substitute when you don’t have any starter.

Herb & Garlic Olive Oil Bread

Yes…. another bread recipe lol! I don’t know about you but we love bread…..especially homemade bread. There is just something about sitting down to a meal and having fresh from the oven bread….and the smell… that is an experience all on it’s own!

This is an easy bread to make and I am thinking it could also make for some delicious tasting hamburger buns! I haven’t tried that yet with this bread recipe but I do think it’s high time!!!

I think I cut it way too soon after removing from the oven because I squished it lol!
