Because I will be baking this in another few hours and wanted to have the recipe with my changes readily at hand.

Adapted from Stephanie Cooks, who adapted it from Taste of Home.

3 cups all-purpose flour
4.5 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt *
1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 Tbsp The Spice and Tea Exchange's Herb Sesame Spice Blend, divided **
1.5 cups milk
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 egg

(* Last time I made this, I did not include salt, but the result was really deficient in salt to the point where I was sprinkling kosher salt over each slice -- I think it was because the Stephanie Cooks version used all-purpose flour while the Taste of Home used self-rising flour, and self-rising flour includes baking powder and salt. Stephanie added back in the baking powder, but not the salt. The internet is fairly divided as to whether self-rising flour is 1/4tsp or 1/2tsp of salt per cup of self-rising flour; I'm splitting the difference for this next attempt and will report back.)

(Reporting back: yeah, a teaspoon of salt is about right.)

(** The Herb Sesame Spice Blend: sesame seed, garlic, onion, basil, parsley, oregano, paprika, thyme, dill, white pepper, cayenne pepper. Original recipe called for "Italian seasoning" instead, but this worked just as well.)


1. Preheat oven to 350*.

2. Combine flour, baking powder, salt, cheese, sugar, garlic powder, and 1/2 of the spice blend in a bowl; mix thoroughly.

3. In separate bowl, combine milk, oil, and egg. Mix thoroughly, then stir into dry ingredients until just combined. (Batter will still be lumpy.)

4. Pour into a greased loaf pan. Top with other 1/2 of the spice blend.

5. Bake for 55-60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean.

6. Cool in pan for 10 minutes, then transfer to wire rack to finish cooling.

Very cool; glad you posted it.

One question, though: you indicate 1 Tbsp of the spice blend, divided, in the recipe but then you talk about 1/2 tsps (in the method) where inserting the blend is called for... I have to presume the tbsp is the correct measure as one and a half tsp would probably flavour nicely both internally and then again on top but I can't imagine 1/2 tsp would work for anything but maybe pretty colour...

is typo?

Glad to know I wasn't imagining things!

Many thanks! Will be sending the recipe along to bakers I know. :-)
