Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
  • 1¾ cups flour, I used whole wheat flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 4 slices of thick bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 1 cup peeled and cut Granny Smith apple, about one small apple
  • ¾ cup sharp shredded cheddar cheese
  • ½ cup almonds toasted and chopped
  • 1 teaspoon of finely chopped fresh rosemary
  • 3 large eggs
  • ⅓ cup milk
  • ⅓ cup oil
  • Shortening to grease the pan
  1. First you need to pre-heat the oven to 350 F
  2. Using a whisk combine the flour, salt, baking powder and cayenne pepper in a large bowl and set aside.
  3. In a medium bowl mix the bacon, apple, cheese, almonds and rosemary and set aside.
  4. Whisk together in a small bowl the eggs, milk, and oil.
  5. Now add the egg mixture to the flour mixture and stir only until dry ingredients are moistened.
  6. Add the bacon and stir just until combined. You don't want to over mix.
  7. Pour the batter into a greased and floured 8½ x 4½ loaf pan.
  8. Bake for about one hour covering with aluminum foil the last 15 minutes to prevent excessive browning.
  9. Let cool for 10 minutes and then remove from pan and let cool another 30 minutes until slicing.
