This tastes almost EXACTLY like Red Lobster's cheddar biscuits! I loaded butter on mine and served with Baked Potato Soup. I should have warmed the bread first to make it even better!
Here is the recipe, courtesy of Stephanie Cooks:
Source: Adapted from Taste of Home
3 cups all-purpose flour
4.5 tsp. baking powder
1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp. garlic powder (could be doubled if you like a lot of garlic)
1/2 tsp. Italian seasonings, divided
1.5 cups milk
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1. Preheat the oven to 350. Combine the flour, baking powder, cheese, sugar, garlic powder, and 1/4 tsp. Italian seasoning in a bowl.
2. In a separate bowl combine the milk, oil, and egg. Stir into dry ingredients until moistened.
3. Pour into a greased 9x5 loaf pan. Top with additional 1/4 tsp Italian seasoning. Bake for 55-60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean.
4. Allow to cool in pan for 10 minutes. Then transfer to a wire rack to cool.
