Jalapeno cheddar loaf

March 2, 2012 - 3:12pm -- wmtimm627

A local chain of bakeries here in Chicagoland makes specialty loaves a couple days a week and there are some that you have to reserve in advance to get any sometimes. My favorite is a whole wheat with (literally) chunks of cheddar and jalapeno pieces all throughout the loaf. They used to make them like a regular sandwich loaf, but now it's more of a round hearth style.

I've tried for the last 13 years to duplicate it, but it always seems to come out too dense. What I really like about the loaf is that you can actually see the cheese and peppers throughout.

Jalapeno, Bacon, and Cheese

We used to buy a sourdough bread that had Jalapeno and Cheese in it that we really liked. When I saw in bread books formulas for Bacon and Cheese I thought why not Jalaneno, Bacon , and Cheese? I was right on track with that question as the bread really does taste great. Here is a picture of the finished bread.

And a picture of the crumb.
