3. In large mixing bowl, add flour and baking powder. In second bowl, whisk together eggs, canola oil and milk.
4. Gently mix flour and liquid mixtures together, just until combined. Stir in mushrooms, cheese, parsley, salt and pepper.
5. Pour into loaf pan and bake for about 30 to 40 minutes. Let cool 10 minutes before removing from the pan. Finish cooling bread on wire rack.
