Green Onion Aged Cheddar Loaf



2 cups all purpose unbleached flour
1 teaspoon sugar
2 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
5 tablespoons butter, cold
1 1/2 cups aged cheddar cheese (grated), plus half a cup to sprinkle on top
2 green onions, finely chopped
2 eggs, room temperature
1 cup milk

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. Using a pastry cutter, cut cold butter into the dry ingredients until mixture is crumbly. Add cheese and green onions. Lightly mix to combine. Set aside.
  
Mix milk and eggs in a separate bowl. Fold wet ingredients into dry ingredients (Do not over mix!).

Pour batter into a prepared loaf pan. Sprinkle half a cup of cheese on top.

Bake for 20 minutes or until a stick inserted into the middle comes out clean. Remove from the oven. Serve hot with butter.

Be sure to make it! I make these when I get people over for dinner instead of dinner rolls. It's light and moist. Let me know how you like it.
