I am a dunker.  Every time I eat soup, especially cream soup, I need to have some yummy bread to dunk.

This black pepper cheddar quick bread is absolutely perfect for dunking in soup, stews or chili! 

It's super quick to mix together, in fact, it can be ready and on the table for dinner in less than an hour. 

Not only is it great with soups, it's also an amazing side for any comfort food meal, especially during the holidays.

If cheddar isn't your thing, or if you have another kind of shredded cheese in the fridge, use that instead! 

It's great with most any shredded cheese and it's fun to make it a little different every time.

What are the ingredients in this recipe?


  • All purpose flour: It's a combination of hard and soft wheats. Bleached flour provides a softer texture. It's versatile and you can bake most anything with it!
  • Granulated sugar: Also known as white sugar, table sugar or regular sugar. It's grainy, common and used in many types of recipes.
  • Baking powder: It's a dry leavening agent, with a shelf life about 9-12 months. Baking powder is used to increase the volume and lighten the texture of baked goods by causing bubbles in a wet mixture. Baking powder is usually made with a combination of baking soda, cream of tartar and cornstarch. Once opened baking powder should be used within six months because it loses its potency and power.
  • Butter: A dairy product consisting of approximately 80% butterfat and made from the fat and protein components of milk or cream. Most commonly made from cow's milk, but can also be made from sheep, goat, yak, or buffalo milk.
  • Baking soda: Also known as Sodium bicarbonate or bicarbonate of soda. It requires an acid and a liquid to become activated and helps baked goods rise. It can also help remove tough stains, eliminate foul odors, and clean difficult areas like the oven, microwave, and tile grout. Unopened, baking soda will remain shelf stable until the best-by date on the box, generally 2 years. Once opened baking soda should be used within six months because it loses its potency and power.
  • Shredded cheddar cheese
  • Eggs
  • Buttermilk
  • Salt
  • Black pepper


Recipe tips:

  • Substitute any shredded cheese
  • Don't have buttermilk? Make your own: 1 tablespoon lemon juice or vinegar plus enough milk to measure one cup 
  • Store any leftover bread in an air tight container in the refrigerator for up to three days
  • If you're not a fan of pepper, reduce the amount or omit from the recipe. Cheesy quick bread is just as good
