Step by Step Method

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease and flour a 9-inch by 5-inch loaf pan.

Step 2

Place flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and cumin in work bowl of food processor with metal blade and process for 2 seconds. Move dry ingredients to another bowl.

Step 3

Process cilantro and green onion for 5 seconds. Add tomatoes and tomato paste (and jalapeno if wanted) and process until tomatoes are pureed, about 10 seconds. Add sugar and process for 30 seconds, stopping to scrape down sides of bowl. Add eggs and process for 1 minute, or until mixture becomes fluffy. Return dry ingredients to processor and combine by turning machine on and off 4 to 5 times until mixture is just incorporated.

Step 4

Pour mixture into prepared pan. Spread the mixture evenly and bake for 45 minutes or until browned. Let the bread cool in the pan for 10 minutes and turn onto wire rack to cool completely.

Very interesting bread! Love that it is put together in the food processor, making it quick and easy. Not sure if it was to rise and split like most quick breads, but mine did not. However, that did not detract from the wonderful flavour. Looking forward to making this for family & friends. Thanks for sharing Mikekey!
