Ham and Swiss Cheese Bread


Olive oil cooking spray

2 cups flour

1 1/4 teaspoons baking powder

3/4 teaspoon baking soda

2 1/4 teaspoons dry mustard 1/2 teaspoon sea salt

Pinch cayenne pepper

3/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon milk

1/3 cup olive oil 2 tablespoons honey

3 eggs

1 1/4 cups ham, finely chopped

1 cup shredded Swiss cheese

1/2 cup finely diced Swiss cheese

2 scallions, chopped

Preheat oven to 350, and Spray a 9-by-5-by-3-inch metal loaf pan with olive oil cooking spray.

Whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, 3/4 teaspoon dry mustard, sea salt and cayenne until combined.

In another bowl, whisk together 3/4 cup milk, oil, 1 tablespoon honey and eggs until smooth.

Stir in the dry ingredients until just combined. Then fold in the ham, 3/4 cup shredded cheese, the diced cheese and scallions.

Pour batter into the loaf pan and sprinkle remaining 1/4 cup shredded cheese.

Bake until well risen, golden brown and a skewer inserted in the center comes out clean, 40 to 45 minutes.

Cool in pan 10 minutes. Meanwhile, in a small microwave-safe bowl, stir together the remaining 1 tablespoon each honey and milk and the remaining 1 1/2 teaspoons dry mustard until smooth.

Heat in the microwave until hot and bubbling, 20 to 30 seconds.

Turn the loaf onto a wire rack and generously brush with the warm glaze. Cool completely.
