Instructions

  1. Preheat and Prepare: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a standard loaf pan and set it aside.
  2. Mix Dry Ingredients: In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar. Stir until well mixed.
  3. Add Cheese and Jalapeños: Stir in the grated cheddar cheese and chopped jalapeños, ensuring they are evenly distributed throughout the flour mixture.
  4. Combine Wet Ingredients: In a separate bowl, whisk together the milk, butter, and egg until well combined.
  5. Mix Everything Together: Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Stir until just combined; avoid over-mixing to keep the bread light and fluffy.
  6. Bake: Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan and smooth the top. Bake for 45-50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  7. Cool and Serve: Allow the loaf to cool in the pan for about 10 minutes before transferring it to a wire rack to cool completely. Slice and serve.

Tips

  • Adjust the Heat: If you prefer a milder bread, reduce the number of jalapeños or remove the seeds, which contain most of the heat.
  • Cheese Variations: For a different flavor profile, try using a mix of cheddar and Monterey Jack or add a bit of Parmesan for extra depth.
  • Add-ins: Consider adding a handful of chopped scallions or a teaspoon of garlic powder for added flavor.
  • Storage: Store the bread in an airtight container at room temperature for up to three days. For longer storage, wrap it tightly in plastic wrap and freeze for up to two months.
  • Serving Suggestions: This bread pairs wonderfully with chili, soups, or as the base for a savory sandwich. Toast slices and serve with a pat of butter for a simple, delicious snack.
