  • 3 c all-purpose flour
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper
  • 4 oz sharp cheddar cheese about 1 cup, shredded
  • 3 oz Pepper Jack cheese shredded
  • 1.25 c milk
  • 3 Tbsp unsalted butter melted
  • 1 large egg lightly beaten
  • 3/4 c sour cream


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Grease and flour 9" x 5" loaf pan. Set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, salt and pepper.
  • Add cheese and toss to coat. This will ensure even distribution of the cheese through out the loaf.
  • In another large mixing bowl, whisk together milk, melted butter, egg and sour cream.
  • With a rubber spatula, fold in wet ingredients to dry ingredients. The batter will be thick. Do not overmix!
  • Scrape the batter onto the prepared pan.
  • Bake the bread until the toothpick comes out clean and the top is golden brown, about 45 to 50 minutes.
  • Cool on rack in pan for 5 minutes, then invert onto the rack and cool completely.
  • To toast the slices: preheat the oven to 425 degrees, place slices on a rimmed baking sheet and toast for 5 to 7 minutes.
