Pickle lovers unite!! That sounds like some sort of battle cry, but in reality it’s just me yelling for my fellow pickle lovers to bake this bread! Ok, so if you know anything about me, you’ll know that I love dill pickles. When I came across this recipe from delish.com I knew I had to give it a try! I decided to add more cheese and pickles than delish suggests, because more is more 🙂 I feel like I say this a lot, but this recipe is super easy! It took almost no time at all to whip up! The combination of pickles and cheese was just too good to pass up.
It sounds crazy.. I know. But let’s get into it,
½ cup of sour cream
½ cup vegetable oil ( I used canola)
2 large eggs
1 tablespoon sugar
1 ¾ cup flour
1 ¼ teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon pickle juice
½ cup chopped pickles (I used ¾ cup)
½ cup cheddar cheese (I used ¾ cup)
2 tablespoon chopped fresh dill (I had dried dill on hand, so I only used 2 teaspoons)
Let’s bake some PICKLE BREAD:
-Start by lining a loaf pan with parchment paper: For those of you that don’t know how to do that (I recently learned myself), here’s how we wanna do that. Put your tin on your parchment paper and make four marks where the corners hit the paper. From there cut in on an angle from edge to mark, and there you go! I like to spray a little cooking spray in the bottom of the pan just to help the parchment stick in place a bit better as well.
-If you’re using a regular ole oven- preheat to 350℉. I’m all about that toaster oven life- so I skipped this step!
-We’re going to continue on by mixing up our “wet team”: whisk together the sour cream, oil, eggs, and the sugar (not wet, but work with me) until they are well combined.
-Next, add the “dry team”: flour, baking powder, salt, and pickle juice (I know.. wet)
-Stir until combined
-After everything is well acquainted, fold in the cheese, the dill, and the pickles (aka the best part).
-Pour that party batter into your loaf pan and bake for about 40 minutes- until a toothpick comes out clean from the center and the top is nice a golden color!
-Slice and enjoy!!
