cheddar cheese quick bread

Cheddar cheese quick bread is a delightful treat! Here’s a simple recipe for you:


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives or green onions (optional)


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease or line a loaf pan with parchment paper.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, and black pepper.
  3. Stir in the shredded cheddar cheese until it’s evenly distributed in the flour mixture.
  4. In another bowl, combine the milk, melted butter, beaten egg, and chopped chives or green onions if using.
  5. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Gently fold and mix until just combined. Be careful not to overmix; it’s okay if there are a few lumps.
  6. Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan, spreading it evenly.
  7. Bake in the preheated oven for 45-50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean and the top is golden brown.
  8. Once baked, remove the bread from the oven and let it cool in the pan for about 10-15 minutes. Then, transfer it to a wire rack to cool completely before slicing.

Enjoy your homemade cheddar cheese quick bread as a savory snack or as a side with soups, salads, or your favorite meals!
