Cheddar Bread


Hello, I buy these rolls at our local bakery that are Cheddar rolls. So I took this idea and did it with a loaf of homemade bread.

2 1/4 Tsp Yeast
1/2 C Warm water
(DO NOT USE HOT or it will KILL the yeast)
1 T Sugar
1 1/2 C Warm Water
1/3 C Olive Oil 
(You can use regular if you'd like)
5 C Flour
2 TSP Salt
3 T Sugar
1/4 Shredded Cheddar

In a bowl combine your half cup of warm water, yeast and your one tablespoon of sugar. Whisk it and let it sit for about 3 1/2 Minutes. Then add your 1 1/2 C water, oil, flour, salt and sugar. If your using a kitchen aid use your dough hook. Let it mix together till it forms a nice ball of dough. You do not want it to sticky...but not to dry. Once your dough is done, then take a bowl and oil it. Place your dough in the bowl and turn over in the oil so it kind of coats it. Set it on the back of your stove. I personally turn my stove on to 350 while it rises.  You'll let it rise for 30 minutes and covered. Once it has doubled in size, you'll punch it down.Split the dough in half. This makes 2 loaves. Take one of the halfs and divide it in three pieces. Braid it. Then fold the ends and place it in a bread pan that you greased. Do the same for the second loaf. Sprinkle cheddar on top and bake till golden brown. Take it out and let it cool then turn it out on a cooling rack. Eat and enjoy!
