I use cheddar in this bread, but you can vary the cheese according to your preferences. You could also add some chopped jalapenos,sweet peppers, or corn kernels for a change. Add up to a cup of these additions when you add the cheese, then proceed with the recipe.
Servings: 2 (8x4-inch / 20x10 cm loaves)

Ingredients
  • 1-1/2 cups / 375 ml all purpose flour
  • 1-1/2 cups / 375 ml whole wheat flour
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons / 7.5 ml baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon / 5 ml baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon / 5 ml salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon / 2.5 ml ground pepper
  • 2 tablespoons / 30 ml dried onion flakes
  • 1 teaspoon / 5 ml garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon / 5 ml chili powder
  • 1 cup / 250 ml grated cheese
  • 1 cup / 250 ml cubed 1/2-inch / 1.25 cm cheese
  • 1-1/2 cups / 375 ml buttermilk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup / 60 ml olive oil
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F / 190 degrees C.
  2. Grease two 8x4-inch / 20x10 cm loaf pans, or one 9x5-inch / 23x13 cm loaf pan. (You can line the bottom with parchment paper if you want. This will prevent cheese from sticking and may help you remove loaves more easily from the pans.)
  3. In large mixing bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, onion flakes, garlic powder, and chili powder until well blended. Add grated and cubed cheese and stir to distribute evenly.
  4. In separate bowl, beat together buttermilk, eggs and olive oil. Add to flour mixture.
  5. Stir until all flour has been moistened and no streaks of flour remain. The batter will be stiff and not smooth.
  6. Spoon into prepared pans and bake for 40 - 45 minutes, or until tops are golden brown and a toothpick inserted into center of loaf comes out clean.
  7. Remove loaves from oven and let sit for 5 minutes. Run a knife around the edges of the pans to loosen any cheese that may be sticking. Turn loaves out of pans and let cool.
