3 cups all-purpose flour
2/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese (fresh if you have it!)
4 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 beaten egg
1.75 cups milk
1/3 cup cooking oil
1 cup chopped walnuts, divided
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9x9x3 inch loaf pan (ha ha - try finding THAT size! I haven't yet! I use a regular loaf pan and a mini one for this recipe and remove the smaller pan from oven first).
In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar, cheese, baking powder and salt. In a small mixing bowl, stir together egg, milk and oil. Add egg mix to flour mix, stirring JUST until combined (batter will be lumpy). Stir in 3/4 cup of the nuts. Turn into greased loaf pan. Sprinkle the remaining nuts over the top.
Bake in a 350 degree oven for about 1 hour or until toothpick tests done. Cool in pan for 10 mins. Remove loaf from pan; cool completely on wire rack. Wrap and store overnight before slicing, or give as a gift. Makes 1 loaf (18 servings). Enjoy! -Diana
