Peppery Cheese Bread on Taste and Tell

This is technically a redo of an old recipe, first published back in November of 2009. But my OCD/wanting to get everything on the blog organized has been kicking in in high force lately, and the original post where this bread was first published also has a recipe for Amazingly Moist Salmon. Which is fine – I ate them together originally, so it only makes sense that I blogged them together.

But I’ve been a little obsessed with my recipe index lately. (And one of these days, I’ll have it all fixed so that they all show a photo!) For each post, I can only choose one photo for the “main” photo that is pulled into the archives. So before today, when you would look under Muffins/Quick Breads, the post for this bread had a photo of fish.

These kinds of posts have been driving me crazy, so I’m slowly working my way through the posts with multiple recipes, and moving one of the recipes to it’s own post. And this one, well – I’m a sucker for bread, so I couldn’t resist remaking the recipe and taking a new photo while I was at it!!

Peppery Cheese Bread recipe

I do love to work with yeast, but a lot of the time, you need something easy and faster. This bread is exactly that. I don’t run across savory quick breads very often, and I don’t know why, because this is so good. Especially if you are a black pepper lover. (And if you aren’t, I would suggest cutting back on the amount of pepper in the recipe.) This is so easy that my almost 5 year old practically made this by herself.

This is a great bread to serve along soup, or pasta, or even just a chicken dinner. I loved it and loved all of the flavors running through it. A definite winner!!

This savory version of a quick bread is filled with cheese and lots of black pepper for a little kick.
Serves: 1 9x5 loaf, about 12 servings
  • 2½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1½ to 2 teaspoons cracked black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 beaten eggs
  • 1 8-ounce carton plain low-fat yogurt
  • ½ cup cooking oil
  • ¼ cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon spicy brown mustard
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese (4 ounces)
  • ¼ cup thinly sliced green onions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350F. Spray a 9x5-inch loaf pan with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, pepper, baking powder, salt and baking powder. In another bowl, combine the eggs, yogurt, oil, milk, mustard, cheese and green onions. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir just until combined. Pour into the prepared loaf pan.
  3. Bake until a tester inserted in the middle comes out clean, 45-50 minutes. Allow to cool for 10 minutes, then remove from pan to a wire rack to cool completely. Store any leftover bread wrapped in the refrigerator.

    I’m seeing this, with a warm bowl of chili, in my future.

  3. Cheese bread is the best. This sounds delicious!

  4. Your recipe index looks great, are you building it yourself? A visual index is on my to-do list…

    I know I would love this bread, it would be perfect with a bowl of soup!

    I love that this is a quick bread recipe. I’m not terribly adventurous with yeast breads, and this is one I could adapt to different savory seasonings to go with any meal. Thanks, for sharing!

    I’ve got to try this and currently, at this exact moment in time, I have all of these ingredients, which is completely amazing because I almost never buy green onions. BUT, in the monthly cooking class I go to, Lisa (the host) usually has something with green onions in it and I eat it, because I hate being that person who picks things out. Turns out, I’m liking green onions. Who would of thought!

  7. This looks incredible! I LOVE anything with cheese in haha, and black pepper sounds like an awesome way to add that little kick. I love that it’s a quick bread too – I’ve never quite mastered yeast!!

  8. Rose M. says:

    I am not good with yeast breads, but this sounds so easy and tasty. I am definitely going to try it…….good with soup or chili on a cold day!

    If I use mini bread pans, how many would be the equivalent?
