This beautiful Jalapeño Popper Quick Bread is a must-try if you love jalapeños and all things good!
Savory quick bread made with all the ingredients of your favorite jalapeño popper!
I’m surprised I even was able to take photos of this Jalapeño Popper Quick Bread.
Because it smelled amazing while it was cooking, and the minute it came out of the oven the boys in my house flocked to the kitchen! We all absolutely LOVED it.
Warm bread, fresh out of the oven is just delightful to begin with.
But this recipe takes homemade bread to the next level!
It’s savory, not too spicy for the kids, and well…bacon and cheese are involved so you can’t go wrong here. It has QUICK in the title which is the best word to see in a recipe title.
This recipe doesn’t require any fancy tools or bread maker machines. You just need a mixing bowl and a baking dish!
So guess what? That also means it’s not-a-lot-of-dirty-dishes bread too.
Let’s also talk about how pretty it is. It has color and looks… well, it looks exciting to me! And I love when a recipe has a very impressive outcome, but doesn’t require impressive effort.
Win. Win. Win. For everyone.
But mostly a win for whoever gets to enjoy this beautiful bread…
Hot outta the oven!
A delightful loaf of savory quick bread!
Don’t mix the batter too much, as you want little bits of cream cheese to stay together in the bread for that magical pop of tang.
Yes, it is as scrumptious as it looks!
