Quickbreads! So many different variations can be made for this one!
For my first submission I made a Bacon and Cheddar Loaf with caramalized onions.
Didn't take pictures of the work in progress but I got one of the finished product.
Really should have used some parchment paper for this one! I would still have to call this cooking trial a success since there was a bit of fighting over who got to eat the part that was stuck on the bottom. Was so looking forward to a slice for breakfast.. no such luck it was all gone by then.
For this loaf I just used a basic quickbread recipe and added about 1/4 cup cooked and crumbled bacon (I tried to make sure it was very well cooked so there would be less grease), a cup of shredded old cheddar and 1/2 an onion diced small and caramalized in a touch of butter.
I may lower the amount of cheese next time as I found it was still a bit on the greasy side but the super crisp bacon softened up nicely.
For my second attempt I made a double chocolate loaf with peanut butter chips. YUM
I adapted the recipe from The Very Best of Baking. This was actually my first time visiting the site and I was quite impressed. So many new things I want to make.
I used regular chocolate chips and peanut butter chips in place the of the mini morsels it called for but pretty much followed everything else. Oh and I didn't make the Chocolate Honey Butter though I was sorely tempted. This loaf really didn't need it anyways.
