The flavours of cheese, pepper and sage really shine through in this great cheese loaf. The taste is delicious, and very moist may I add. This is great served up with a soup and salad, I always make two of these loaves for my family.

I cannot believe I'm the first one to review this wonderful quick bread! I had some "use it or lose it" provolone in the fridge and made this for dinner tonight. Moist with a wonderful texture, slightly grainy from the cornmeal yet smooth and creamy. Spices are a perfect compliment, not overpowering or too spicy. I made it as directed with dried sage, cayenne and olive oil, except using soured milk for buttermilk as I was out. This would be great with soup and salad or for brunch. We really enjoyed it. Thanks so much for posting, Kittencal!
