Ideal for Christmas gifts, the Basic Mix recipe can be made ahead and stored up to 1 month. When you're ready to bake the bread, add fresh herbs and cheddar cheese for a flavor-packed option.


    Basic Mix:
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon dried cilantro or parsley
  • 1 tablespoon dried rosemary
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


  1. For Basic Mix, combine all ingredients in one resealable plastic bag. Seal bag and store up to 1 month.


  • To make Cheddar-Herb Bread: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease an 8x4x2-inch loaf pan. Place Basic Mix in a bowl. With a pastry blender, cut in 1/4 cup butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in 4 ounces white cheddar cheese, shredded. In a bowl combine 3/4 cup milk and 1 egg, slightly beaten. Add to crumb mixture all at once. Stir quickly with a fork to moisten. Spread in prepared pan. Bake 45 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan on wire rack for 10 minutes. Turn loaf out onto wire rack; cool completely. Makes 12 servings.
