So you want bread in less than an hour and don’t want to fuss with yeast or kneading? Quick breads are a great way to make savory or sweet treats no matter what your craving. (I also find them easy to make even if things are not measured out perfectly). This recipe is for Cheesy Tomato and Cilantro Bread.
2 1/3 cups whole wheat flour
3 juicy tomatoes diced up (keep the juice!)
1/2 tsp baking soda
2 tsp baking powder
1-1/2 cups cubed cheddar cheese (smaller pieces are better)
1/2 cup chopped cilantro (pack the cilantro in)
2-1/2 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp powdered ranch dressing (or herbs and spices of your choosing but the buttermilk in the dressing adds to the creamy!)
1/8 cup lemon juice
Grease a bread pan with a little oil
Preheat the oven to 305 degrees
Mix the Ingredients in a big bowl. The dough should be sticky but not wet looking and everything should hold together in a big ol’ lump
Dump dough into greased pan and use fingers or spoon to push into nice shape. (Think smoothing the top to have a nice crust)
Bake for about 45 minutes
Serve plain, warm or with butter. I have served this bread with roasted garlic and black pepper spread, cheese spread and balsamic vinegar and olive oil for dipping.
