Cheddar Apple Quick Bread
Makes one 9×5” loaf
• 1 cup all purpose flour
• 1 cup whole wheat flour
• 1 tablespoon baking powder
• 1 tsp salt
• 1 ½ cups grated sharp cheddar cheese
• 1 ½ cups grated Gala apple (about 2 apples)
• 3 large eggs
• 2/3 cup 2% or whole milk
• 4 tablespoons butter, melted
Preheat your oven to 350°. Butter and flour a 9×5” loaf pan. Set aside.
In a large bowl whisk together the dry ingredients. Add in the grated cheddar and toss to evenly coat. Set aside.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, and melted butter. Fold in the grated apple. Add in the dry ingredients and fold gently to combine, being careful not to over mix. The batter will be very thick.
Spoon batter into the prepared pan and bake for 45-50 minutes until the top is golden brown, and a toothpick or cake tester comes out clean. Let cool in pan for 30 minutes before slicing and serving. Serve alone or with a rich berry jam. This quick bread is suitable as a breakfast or brunch side, as well as a dinner side.
