Cheddar Bread

Buttermilk gives this cheesy quick bread a subtle tang and keeps it nice and moist. Serve with plenty of butter. Martha made this recipe on "Martha Bakes" episode 713.

    I found it to be bland. It appears to need more salt.

    This bread tastes like a yawn. I freshly grated a brick of good, extra sharp cheddar, and it's still lacking in flavor. I think more salt might help, but what it really needs is more pizzazz: black pepper, chives, maybe even chopped bacon! The texture is great, it just needs a big boost.

      Agreed. I found an old recipe that's almost identical but with these additions: 2 tbsp. pickled jalapenos, drained and chopped, added to flour mixture; 1 tbsp. Tabasco, added to liquid ingredients; substitute 2 tbsp. vegetable oil for butter; bread will brown better.

      This is my second time baking this cheddar bread in two weeks. I had to add extra salt and also some crushed red peppers to give it a little more flavour. We are trying not to eat yeast and therefore this recipe is perfect.

    This is an easy recipe to make, and it came out fantastic. I used a name brand cheese to see how it came out, and then I made it from cheese I acquired from our farmers market - both came out wonderfully. I plan on making it more often.

    The quality of the cheese is important as gives the bread its favor. I would caution against adding extra salt as the cheese and buttermilk naturally contain high amounts of salt. The batter looks alarmingly dense so don't worry about that.
