For the Bread:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • Zest of 2 lemons
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 2 large eggs

For the Lemon Glaze (optional):

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2-3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice


  1. Preheat the Oven:
    • Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour a loaf pan or line it with parchment paper.
  2. Mix Dry Ingredients:
    • Combine the flour, baking powder, salt, baking soda, and sugar in a large mixing bowl. Stir in the shredded cheddar cheese and lemon zest.
  3. Combine Wet Ingredients:
    • Whisk together the lemon juice, milk, Greek yogurt, melted butter, and eggs in another bowl until well combined.
  4. Combine Wet and Dry Mixtures:
    • Gradually add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, stirring until just combined. Be careful not to overmix; the batter should be slightly lumpy.
  5. Bake the Bread:
    • Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan and spread it out evenly. Bake in the preheated oven for 45-55 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  6. Cool the Bread:
    • Allow the bread to cool in the pan for about 10 minutes before transferring it to a wire rack to cool completely.
  7. Prepare the Lemon Glaze (Optional):
    • While the bread is cooling, whisk together the powdered sugar and lemon juice in a small bowl until smooth and pourable. Adjust the consistency with more lemon juice if needed.
  8. Glaze the Bread:
    • Once the bread has cooled, drizzle the lemon glaze over the top, letting it drip down the sides.
  9. Serve and Enjoy:
    • Slice and serve the cheese bread. Enjoy it as a savory snack or a unique side dish to accompany your meals.


  • You can use different cheese types, such as Parmesan or Gruyère, to experiment with flavors.
  • For added texture, consider adding chopped nuts or seeds to the batter.
  • This bread keeps well at room temperature for a couple of days, or you can refrigerate it for longer storage.

Enjoy your delicious homemade cheese bread with a zesty lemon twist!
