In this post, I will show you how to make a 10 Minute Homemade Bread with Cheese & Herbs. This bread is loaded with so many great flavors, it´s above & beyond easy to make and it takes just 10 minutes of prep work. Folks, this might be the BEST homemade bread recipe ever.

10 Minute Homemade Bread with Cheese & Herbs
My favorite part about this bread recipe, is that there is no yeast involved, which means no waiting for the dough to rise. Just add the ingredients into a bowl, mix until you form a dough and into the oven it goes.

This bread is what is called a quick bread. So the texture will be different than that of a traditional yeast bread. It is much denser, but the texture is still absolutely beautiful. Plus all the flavors in the bread will take your tastebuds to food heaven.

10 Minute Homemade Bread with Cheese & Herbs
TIPS & TRICKS to Make this Recipe: I used an 8-inch (20 cm) round baking pan. But you can use any shape you like, from a square pan to a rectangular pan. My loaf of bread took 30 minutes to bake in my oven. But every oven heats differently, so keep an eye on it after 25 minutes. You can always pierce the bread with a toothpick, if it comes out cleanly, the bread is ready to go.

    Hey Albert! I had to drop in to give you kudos for your delicious recipes. The message is SIMPLICITY, and we can all appreciate this.

    I am about to prepare your SOPA CAMPESINA and can almost taste it as I write this…

    By the way, I have now been following a Plant-Perfect diet for fifty-five years and use no oil, salt or sugar. Rather than oil, I use my homemade broth or water; for salt, I use Miso…so when I say your recipes are some of the best and stunningly simple i have come across, please take this as a huuuuuge compliment…

    Your personality also helps!

    Yours in deliciousness,

    DR. C. L. COHEN

    P.S.: High five!

    Nice video, as always. Can you substitute in some whole wheat flour easily?

      Yes you can easily sub the all-purpose for whole wheat flour 🙂 you just might need to add in a 1 tbsp (15ml) more water, much love
