Jalapeno Cheddar Bread

This stuff is ridiculously good. It takes about 10 minutes to put together and most of that is chopping up the peppers.

Quick breads are about the easiest form of baking imaginable. Mix together the dry ingredients, pour in the wet ingredients, barely mix and pour into a pan. That's about as easy as it gets and your whole house smells like fresh bread. In this case, a cheesy, spicy bread.



Jalapeno Cheddar Bread
Recipe adapted from Pink Parsley, originally from Savory Baking

2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp sugar
1 T baking powder
1 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1 tsp salt
1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1 cup milk (I used skim)
1/3 cup canola oil
1 large egg
3 jalapeno peppers, seeded and diced
1/2 cup green bell pepper, diced
1/2 cup roasted red pepper, diced

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray an 8" x 4" loaf pan with baking spray.

In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, pepper, salt, and cheese. Toss together and make a well in the center. In a separate bowl, combine milk, oil, and egg and whisk together. Pour mixture into well in center of flour and stir mix together lightly with a wooden spoon. Add peppers and stir just until dry ingredients are all combined. The batter should be lumpy.

Pour batter into prepared loaf pan.


Bake bread for approximately 45 minutes until golden brown. Bread should spring back when touched. Cool in pan for about 10 minutes, run a knife around all sides and turn out of pan. Cool completely on a wire rack.

  2. Looks amazing, but coconut oil would be healthier than canola

  3. So, I quickly ran through your recipe prior to starting work, then ran through the ingredients. Then a little more slowly ran through the ingredients, while mentally trying to figure out if the health food store would have that ingredient. Then went item by item and couldn't find that other ingredient listed - the barley - where the heck and how much barley? So, went back and read that paragraph over (sadley, had to do it twice) before I finely realized you said "barely" mix - not "barley mix." Ahem...will attempt the recipe without the barley mix. Thanks!

  5. You can buy the peppers already chopped. Makes it so much easier. Open the jar, drain and you are done.
