Cheese Bread with Three Peppers

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 40 mins

A nice colorful quick bread with a mild piquant flavor. If you want to punch things up, you could use Fresno and Serrano chiles if you dare, but this one is pretty Clark Kent tame.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Grease the bottom of a 9x5-inch loaf pan and set aside.
  3. Mix together the flour, cheese, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and pepper in a bowl.

  5. Add egg mixture to flour, and mix until just moistened.
  6. Pour batter into loaf pan and bake in the preheated oven (place pan on a cookie sheet or other flat pan), baking for approximately 40 minutes or unti, a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.

Excellent bread! I have made it twice now and my family loves it. Would love to try it with a hotter pepper but as the rest of my family are wimps probably wont do it soon. Ha. Yummmy.
