I love jalapeno cheese bread! I added extra jalapenos, used butter instead of vegetable oil, added in a little of the liquid from the canned jalapenos (a couple of tablespoons), added a 1/2 tsp garlic powder and 1/4 tsp cumin (I can never stop fiddling with recipes!). It was quite tasty, but still a little dry.
I thought the bread was a little dry, but doesn't everything taste great from a bread machine anyway? The jalapeno bread I had recently at a barbecue place in TX was very moist and soft, with just a little hint of jalapeno. I'm still looking for the perfect recipe. Really, this wasn't bad.
I figured out the dry problem everyone seemed to be having. First of all, the 50 ml sugar is 3 - 3/8 tbs; then the 5 oz water is only 5/8 cup - it should be at least one whole cup. I added a little more cheese and made the dough, then made pan rolls. When it says to mince the jalapeno pepper, that's a good idea. I just chopped them and when you get a good sized piece, it overpowers the bread. So, anyway, mine were moist but next time, I 'll make sure to mince the jalapenos. Anyway, a really tasty switch from regular bread, thanks for the recipe!
