We don’t use any yeast in this recipe to keep things easy and, since we make a sort of “bread batter,” we also don’t have to knead anything for this recipe. All you have to do is prep your wet and dry ingredients separately before combining in a loaf pan and baking in the oven. Hands-on time is short and your loaf of cheese bread bakes in an hour- it’s the perfect low-stress recipe!

How to make Cheese Bread

Start things off by mixing together all of your dry ingredients in a large-enough mixing bowl. Remember, sugar is not usually considered a dry ingredient, so don’t add it yet!

Dry bread ingredients in a bowl

Whisk those together thoroughly before moving on to your other ingredients. Next, you’ll want to get your cheese shredded and your green onions chopped- no need to go super fine here.

In a separate mixing bowl, crack in your eggs and add your milk and sugar. Beat those all together until well-combined.

Wet ingredients in a bowl for homemade bread

Before we introduce all of these ingredients to each other, we first have to deal with our butter. Drop cold pats of your butter into the bowl with your dry ingredients. Grab something like a fork or a pastry cutter to cut and work that butter into the dry ingredients until it forms into a nice, crumbly mixture.

Cutting in butter to dry ingredients

Drop in your preferred cheese and chopped green onions and fold them in with a spatula or spoon.

Cheese and chives added

Now add in your milk-egg mixture from earlier and mix until just combined. We want this to form into a workable batter.

Wet ingredients added to be mixed for bread

Prep your favorite 9×5 loaf pan by either heavily greasing it or lining it with parchment paper. Pour your batter into this pan and then place in a 350 degree oven to bake.

It’ll probably take around an hour for your bread to bake through. You’ll know it’s ready when a toothpick, poked into the center, pulls clean.

When it’s done, pull it from the oven. Ideally let this loaf cool a little bit before slicing, serving, and enjoying!

  1. Could this be made a day ahead and still taste fresh?. Sometimes like baking powder biscuits, they are best if eaten the day of cooking.
