Herb and Cheese Batter Bread

What is better than the smell of homemade bread baking in your oven??? Homemade bread you didn’t have to kneed.  Smile   I love homemade bread and I love making homemade bread but I don’t love cleaning up the flour mess on my counter after making homemade bread. I’m not sure what it is about it but I just really don’t like it.  I came across a recipe for batter bread and added some yummy herbs and cheese and came out with a loaf we think is really yummy….and it smells wonderful baking in your oven!!! (Sorry my picture isn’t the greatest. I should have paid more attention in photography class instead of cutting my friends’ hair in the dark room.)DSCI1575
