| This receipt was shared by my cousin
who got it from her next door neighbour Pauline. This is really delicious;
and is a baking soda bread so there is no yeast to worry about, no "covering
and leaving in a warm place to rise" and so on. The receipt calls for a
6 cup casserole. I used a 1.5 litre glass loaf pan that measures 8" X 4"
X 2 1/2" deep.
This is best served warm. Buffi suggests serving with butter; but we found it is pretty good as is. It already has a half cup of butter right in it.
1/2 cup butter
Preheat oven to 350° F.
In a large bowl, cream butter, beat in eggs and garlic. In a second bowl, combine dry ingredients. Slowly stir dry ingredients into creamed mixture, alternating with sour cream. Stir in cheese.
Spoon into a greased and lightly floured 6 cup casserole dish or loaf pan. If you wish, sprinkle some extra shredded cheese on top. Bake for 50 to 60 minutes at 350° F until golden brown and a tester comes out clean. Let cool for 5 minutes, then take out and put on a rack.
|Note: If you have trouble with things like this burning on the bottom, try using the "top" oven rack in the middle of the oven with a cookie sheet on the lower rack as a "heat shield" between the element and the garlic cheese bread.|
