9x5-inch Loaf Pan
For the Wet Ingredients:
- 1/2 cup Sour Cream
- 1/2 cup Vegetable Oil
- 2 eggs
- 1 tablespoon Sugar
- 1 tablespoon Pickle Juice
For the Dry Ingredients:
- 1 3/4 cups Flour all-purpose
- 1 1/4 teaspoons Baking Powder
- 1/2 teaspoon Salt
- 1/2 cup Dill Pickles grated
- 1/2 cup Shredded Cheese shredded
- 2 tablespoons Fresh Dill chopped
Preparation and Preheating:
- Preheat the oven to 350°F.
- Grease a 9×5-inch loaf pan and line it with parchment paper, allowing some overhang on the sides for easy removal of the bread.
Mixing Wet and Dry Ingredients:
- In a large bowl, whisk together the sour cream, vegetable oil, eggs, and sugar until thoroughly combined and smooth.
- In another bowl, mix together the all-purpose flour, baking powder, and salt.
- Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, stirring just until combined. Be careful not to overmix.
Incorporating Pickle and Cheese Mixture:
- Add the pickle juice, followed by the grated pickles, shredded cheese, and fresh dill to the batter. Gently fold the ingredients in to ensure even distribution throughout the batter.
Baking and Cooling:
- Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan and smooth the top with a spatula.
- Bake in the preheated oven for 40-50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean or with a few moist crumbs clinging to it.
- Let the bread cool in the pan for about 10 minutes, then use the parchment paper to lift it out and transfer it to a wire rack to cool completely.
Now, let's discuss reheating and storage because, let's be honest, not all of us possess the self-restraint of a saint when it comes to irresistible, freshly baked bread. If, by some chance, you have leftovers, simply wrap the bread in plastic wrap or store it in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days. For extended storage, freeze it where it will maintain its freshness for approximately three months. Reheating this bread is effortless. If stored at room temperature, a brief 10-15 seconds in the microwave will revive it. If it's been frozen, allow it to thaw at room temperature before warming it in a preheated oven at 350°F for 10-15 minutes.
