Cheesy, Herby Quick Bread


Cheesy, Herby Quick Bread

Cheesy, Herby Quick Bread

is best suited for a Ladies Luncheon. The recipe fluttered into my house with the Dorie Greenspan’s newsletter. There were some leftover cheeses that were wonderful in this bread.

Today is not only Mother’s Day but also the state election in Schleswig-Holstein and the neighbor’s son celebrates his confirmation. This bread also fits these occasions.

  1. Center a rack in the oven and preheat it to 175 °C/ 350 °F. Line a 20 cm/8-inch loaf pan with parchment paper.
  2. Working in a large bowl, whisk the flour, baking powder and salt together. In another bowl whisk the eggs, milk, olive oil and honey together. Pour the wet ingredients over the flour mixture and, using a flexible spatula, stir until mostly blended. There’s no need to be thorough now.
  3. Add shedded and cubed cheese, scallions and walnuts to the bowl and mix them together. Try to be gentle, but don’t try to be perfect – just like with muffins, it’s better to under- than over-mix. The batter will be heavy and sticky.
  4. Scrape it into the lined pan and use the edge of the spatula to nudge it into the corners.

  5. Bake the loaf for about 35 minutes until a tester inserted into the center comes out clean. Put the pan on a rack, let the loaf rest for 3 minutes, then unmold it onto the rack. Let the loaf come to room temperature right side up. You can eat it when it’s warm, but I think it’s best at room temperature.
