Cheddar and Bacon Loaf

Take it on a picnic, enjoy at home with a cup of tea…whatever the occasion this is a great recipe to add to your repertoire

What you will need

  • Butter, for greasing
  • 4 rashers of unsmoked spoiltpig streaky bacon
  • 275g plain flour
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • Pinch of English mustard powder
  • 50g mature Cheddar, cut into 1cm cubes
  • 1 large free range egg
  • 225ml milk
  • 2 – 3 tbsp chopped fresh parsley

How to prepare

Preheat the oven to 2000C / fan 1800C. Grease the base and sides of a 450g loaf tin and line the base with baking paper.

Snip the spoiltpig bacon into strips and dry-fry in a pan until crisp. Allow to cool. Meanwhile, put the flour, baking powder, salt and mustard powder into a bowl and stir well. Add the cheese, bacon, egg, 225ml milk and parsley and mix thoroughly with a wooden spoon until you achieve a soft dropping consistency. If required, add extra milk.

Spread evenly into the tin and bake for 35-40 minutes until risen, golden brown and just firm to the touch. Serve warm or cold with butter and a good vintage cheese. It’ll be tricky but try not to eat the whole loaf yourself!
