Jalapeno Cheese Bread

Not too spicy but oh so savory and wonderful Jalapeño Cheese Bread


  • 2 cups All Purpose Flour
  • 1 cup shredded or finely cubed cheese (I used 2% reduced fat cheddar)
  • 1/4 cup minced jalapenos (I wish I would have used more)
  • 1/8 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup hot water (110 - 115*)
  • 1 package active dry yeast (.25 ounce)
  • 1 tbsp oil (for some reason my oil came with an upside down label?)


1. Combine hot water. sugar, and yeast in a small bowl and let it set for 10 mins, stir to dissolve yeast.
2. While yeast is setting add all dry ingredients into stand mixer with dough hook and turn on stir.
3. Slowly add in wet ingredients and add yeast when finished setting. 
4. Allow mixer to knead dough for around 10-15 mins until well mixed and elastic. My dough happened to look like this...

5. Remove from mixer and form into ball on a greased/sprayed baking sheet and cover.

6. Allow dough to rise until doubled in size, around 45 the point of the above picture the dough was about 1/4 risen. Punch down a bit and allow to rise again (THIS IS IMPORTANT so your bread isn't too dense)  Preheat oven to 325*

7.  Bake for about 1 hour, rotating your pan to ensure even browning.

Allow to cool for about 20 mins, SLICE AND SERVE!!
  • This is great sliced, buttered, and retoasted. 
  • Even though it is cheesy add cheese on top of slice and broil perhaps with a few sliced fresh jalapenos
  • We normally eat this with chicken or pepper beef.
