  • 1 ½ tablespoon olive oil
  • ¾ cup yellow onion coarsely chopped
  • 3 cups flour
  • 2 tablespoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 8 ounces mild cheddar cheese grated in large size shreds
  • 1 12oz can Dr Pepper
  • 3 tablespoon butter melted


  • Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.
  • In a medium sized skillet, heat olive oil on a medium heat setting. Once warm, add in chopped onion. Allow to caramelize and become golden in color. Stir often to prevent burning.
  • While your onion is sautéing, combine the flour, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl. Mix well. 
  • Grate your cheese and set aside. After your onion has cooked and is translucent and browned, place with your flour mixture.
  • Top with the shredded cheese: 
  • Stir to incorporate the onions and cheddar.
  • Next, make a well in the middle of the flour mixture. Then, slowly pour the Dr Pepper into the mix.
  • Stir just until the mixture has come together. You don't want to over mix. 
  • Place in a loaf pan that has been greased with non-stick spray or butter. 
  • Bake for 40 minutes. Coat the top with 3 tablespoons melted butter, cover with foil and bake an additional 5 minutes. Make sure your bread is cooked through (a toothpick should come out clean from the center). Cool on a wire rack for 5 minutes, then remove from the loaf pan. 
  • Try to resist eating it while it cools! Your house should smell amazing!
