Cheese & bacon quick bread


  • Preheat oven to 160°C fan forced (180°C normal).
  • Heat a little oil in a pan and gently saute the bacon until lightly coloured. Drain and set aside.
  • Sift the flour, baking powder and salt into a bowl, and mix in the ground pepper.
  • Whisk 200 ml oil with the milk and eggs in another large bowl. Then lightly stir through the flour mixture until a smooth batter has formed. Add the tasty cheese, bacon and mustard. Stir with a wooden spoon until well combined, being careful not to over mix.
  • Spray a loaf tin with oil, line the base with baking paper and spoon in the batter. Level the top with a wet spoon and cook in the middle of the oven for about 1 hour until golden and risen and a skewer comes out clean. Remove and set aside to cool in the tin for 15-20 mins or so.
  • Then turn the bread out onto a wire rack to completely cool. Store in an airtight container.
