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.

“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.

Bushman Bread

From what I can gather doing a quick online search, this bread originated in Australia and was traditionally made by campers.  I don’t know how true that quick search result is but the bread is delicious.  It is perfect for when you are looking for something a little less mainstream and is fairly easy to make. And as with most bread recipes when they are baking…. it makes the whole house smell awesome!!!

Easy Rye Bread

While I have all of my Freezer Meals I saved specifically for the next week or two, I didn’t think to make some bread ahead of time to freeze too.  For dinner on Sunday, I was completely exhausted but thankfully had some of the French Onion Meatballs frozen that I made a few weeks back. That meant all I had to do was make some mashed potatoes, salad and some veggies to have with dinner…. and of course, bread.  This recipe is easy to make and tastes delicious.  Chris came in and said the house smelled like his memories of his grandfather’s bakery from when he was a kid lol!

Garlic Cheese Focaccia Bread

What a weekend!  Saturday Dillon took me to town so that I could deliver all the Cookie Grams I made, to pick up some fabric, be tech support for my mother-in-law lol and the best of all…. to babysit my granddaughter!  I had a great time with the little one but it sure tuckered me out.  I didn’t get my lazy ass out of bed until almost 10 o’clock on Sunday!!!! Once I got my marbled somewhat in order I did a little baking.  The  first thing I made was this Garlic Cheese Focaccia bread and it was delicious!

Easy to Make Italian Bread

It’s been a while since I’ve posted a bread recipe.  When I make bread now I really wonder why I was so scared of yeast and making bread for so long.  I suppose getting a Kitchenaid mixer for Christmas a few years ago might have something to do with it but even so, when something went in my mixer, I still did make some loaves of bread…. by hand!!!

This is an easy recipe to make a delicious loaf of Italian Bread!

Easy to Make Oatmeal Bread

I was making a pot of Buffalo Chicken Chili (I will post the recipe for this tomorrow) the other night and wanted some kind of homemade bread to have with it.  I didn’t want to make just plain bread or even a loaf of French Bread.  I wanted something that was more substantial and a sort of stick to your ribs/comfort bread.  I decided on Oatmeal bread.  Because of the oatmeal, it is a bit denser than regular sandwich bread and paired great with the chili!  Dillon liked it so much that he ate the 2 slices I had cut for him and went back to cut more for himself lol! The fact it is made with ingredients you likely already have on hand is just a bonus!

There really is nothing quite like the smell of fresh bread baking in your oven!
