This recipe has quickly become one of my absolute favorites. A friend made it for a party a few months back and it was one of the first things to go. My two year old also ADORES this recipe. Perhaps it's because it has all of his favorite things: ham, cheese and bread.
This is so easy to put together that I didn't even bother to take pictures of all of the steps. Besides, how many pictures of dough balls do you really need to see on my website?
2/3 cup grated gruyere cheese (cheddar cheese would be really good too)
2/3 cup deli ham chopped
1/2 cup butter melted (1 stick or 100 grams)
1 1/4 cup of flour (200 grams)
1/2 cup of milk
2 tablespoons of baking powder
salt & pepper
Preheat oven to 400℉ (210℃)
Line a loaf pan with parchment paper.
In a large bowl add the eggs and beat with an electric mixer. Add the flour and baking powder and keep beating on low while you add the milk and melted butter.
After everything is well incorporated add the ham and cheese along with a pinch of salt and pepper. Mix well.
Pour batter into prepared loaf pan.
Cook for 10 minutes on 400℉ and then reduce heat to 350℉ (180℃) and cook for an additional 20 minutes.
As you can see, by the time I got around to taking pictures, my boys had already dug right in. Yeah...it is that good!
