Cheese Bread

This bread is full of contrasts: feather soft bread surrounded by crunchy crust, buttery sweetness accented with strings of sharp cheddar cheese.

This recipe is adapted from the Cuisinart Bread Machine Instruction Booklet

  • ¾ cup lukewarm water between 80 and 90 degrees
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted, softened butter
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups bread flour (Japanese bread flour or the finest bread flour available)
  • 2 tablespoons nonfat dry milk
  • 1 teaspoon yeast (active dry or instant)
  • 1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese

Place all ingredients except for the cheese into the pan of a bread maker machine. (Apparently it’s important to adhere to the order listed above.) When your machine signals it’s time for mix-ins, pour in 1 cup grated cheese. Bake the loaf at the white bread setting.
