Herb And Cheese Bread (Mix-n-Bake)

This Herb and Cheese Bread is from one of my favorite cookbooks, the pages are actually coming apart from all the use!

A year or two before my Dad passed away, I bought him a Bread Making Machine, which he loved to use. He actually picked different recipes and baked them ! I thought he’ll just use it for normal whitebread.

He’ll be gone 4 years this month, and I still haven’t used it, as I now have it. Maybe I still miss him too much to use the machine or maybe I just don’t have the guts to bake an actual yeast bread (even with the machine).

I like baking bread, sweet and savory, but it has to be (preferably!) like this recipe – mix and bake.

Serve this bread on it’s own, warm with just butter, or as we normally do – with soup. It’s also a nice variation on the standard types of bread used for sandwiches.

recipe slightly adapted from : Gesinskos

4 cups Self-Raising Flour
1 t Oregano
1/3 cup Dried Parsley
1 t Salt
1 t Dried Garlic Flakes

1.) Pre-heat oven to 180 deg C (350 deg F) – Spray a loaf pan with cooking oil and line the bottom with baking paper.
2.) Combine the Flour, Oregano, Parsley, Garlic Flakes, Salt and Cayenne Pepper in a large bowl.
3.) Beat the Buttermilk and Egg together and add to the dry ingredients. – Mix until a dough has formed (it is quite sticky)
4.) Pour dough into the loaf pan, making it even on top. Sprinkle with the Cheddar Cheese (we like a lot, as you’ll notice on the last photo – I used about 1 cup) and some Paprika.
5.) Bake for 1 hour, remove from oven, cool in pan for 5 minutes, remove from pan and let cool at least 10 minutes before serving.

  1. Its crazy how certain things are just kinda sacred when we lose a loved one. I love savory bread, I noticed you put cayenne pepper in it, now you are after my heart. Since I live and have grown up in the Southwest of the United States, we can't eat with out some kind of spicy pepper or salsa or.. Just by the way, I am posting an amazing little cupcake Monday. Chocolate Chipotle Bacon Cupcake or all those things in another order. Stay turned, its spicy and… Thank you for sharing at Freedom Fridays.
