Use freshly shredded cheddar cheese because pre-shredded has a flour/non-stick coating on it which prevents it from melting well in a loaf of bread like this.
Get creative! Add fresh or dried herbs, like parsley, or chives. Switch up cheeses, etc.
Quick breads are (almost) fool proof. Just watch that you don’t overdue the amount of liquids when adding flavors and ingredients.
