Onion Cheddar Quick Bread

Recipe by kimber

I needed a recipe for a cheddar quick bread for our local fair. This one looked really good so I'm going to try it.

This bread was good, but a little crumbly. It sounded like to much baking powder, but I made it like the recipe said. I am going to reduce the baking powder to 1 tablespoon next time I make it to see it that will help. But it had a good flavor.
