I made this recipe on Christmas morning and it was a hit with everyone. I prefer this bread with dill, but I think there are many combinations of herbs you could use. Also, you can use 2 cups all-purpose flour, instead of the two different types the original calls for.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 F and lightly oil a loaf pan.
  2. Mix dry ingredients together in a large bowl and then stir in the herbs and cheese.
  3. In a smaller bowl, beat the egg and milk together.
  4. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix until just combined.
  5. The batter will be stiff, but this is normal.
  6. Use a spatula to put the batter in the loaf pan, smoothing the top when done.
  7. Bake for 40-45 minutes until the top is solid and a knife in the centre comes out clean.
  8. Cool for 5 minutes on a wire rack before removing from the pan.
  9. Serve warm.

I've tried a few herb quick bread recipes but I found this one to be the best. I made them into muffins and we had them with dinner. Very flavorful and everyone loves them. Thank you!

Great bread! I used all unbleached white flour and replaced the chives with the green part of scallions and fresh chopped sage and thyme. I served it with a hearty Pasta Fagioli #10671. I will make this again and try different herbs.
