Cheese Herb Bread - low carb

Cheesy low carb bread
Much as I am enjoying baking and being able to eat sweet - low carb - treats, my craving is not for sweets, but rather savoury flavours, like cheese and Marmite. I made Lemon Poppy Seed bread from the New Atkins Cookbook a few weeks ago with this recipe. The mechanics of the recipe are the same but I made a savoury bread this time. I replaced the spices with herbs and added a hefty helping of seriously strong cheddar cheese.

The bread was baked in a silicone bread pan which meant I didn't have to grease the pan. Love those silicone baking utensils! Easy to use and easy to clean.

I always skip salt and because I used such strong cheese, salt definitely wasn't necessary. I skipped the baking soda as I only have baking powder at home. More on the difference - here. And I swapped the sour cream for soy cream. Read how I make my own low carb flour - here.
