Slice-and-go cheesy bacon bread

20 December 2016

No butter or spread required for this tasty savoury loaf!

Serves 4-6 Preparation: 10 min Baking: 40 min

  • 310 ml (1¼ c) flour
  • 5 ml (1 t) baking powder
  • 4 spring onions, finely chopped
  • 350 g Cheddar cheese, grated
  • 125 g bacon, chopped
  • 4 eggs
  • salt and pepper
  • 10 ml (2 t) sweet chilli sauce
  • 5 ml (1 t) oil
  • 60 ml (¼ c) buttermilk

Preheat the oven to 180 °C and grease a loaf tin.

1 Sift the flour and baking powder into a large bowl. Stir in the spring onions, cheese and bacon (don’t cook the bacon – it flavours the bread as it cooks in the batter).

2 Mix the eggs, salt, pepper, sweet chilli sauce, oil and buttermilk in a jug or bowl. Pour into the flour mixture and stir until well incorporated.

3 Pour the batter into the prepared baking tin and bake for 40 minutes or until a skewer inserted in the middle comes out clean.

4 Allow to cool for 5 minutes then turn out on a wire rack and cool completely.
