This was great! I added a little granulated garlic and dried basil with the dry ingredients. I set the machine for the dough cycle and then baked in the oven. Thanks for the wonderful recipe, I'll be making this often!
I just made it today and it was super! I did take the advice of others to reduce the water 1/8 cup for fear of it collapsing. It didn't. The taste was better than I expected too. I used the dough setting and put it in a glass bread/loaf pan. I baked it with the advice given on the message boards and it was nicely browned on top and done on the inside too. My family didn't want to wait for it to cool because they were tempted with the toasty cheese smell. I haven't tried it as toast yet, but I will. This one is a keeper!<br/>Thanks for sharing it!
this baked up just great in my breadman! sliced up easily, and we just served this with butter and cheese, with a hearty soup, in front of the fireplace, good deal!
This is an excellent and very flavorful bread! I love the cheddar and cracked black pepper together. It's no wonder, Geema, likes to use this for grilled cheese sandwiches! I can't wait to try one myself! Great recipe, Geema!
I had high hopes for this recipe. Followed directions to a "T". Everything looked hopeful until the dough started the baking process. The dough was rising so high, it lifted the top off my bread machine! Therefore, I couldn't bake it in the machine. I took the whole pan out of the machine and thought I would try to bake it in the oven, but when I did, the middle sank. I put it in the oven anyways and the bread pan fell over spilling dough into the oven. What a catastrophe. For a minute there, I thought I was on the I Love Lucy show with the huge bread monster coming out of the oven. I maybe will try making this again, but will bake in the regular oven instead of the bread machine. Too bad cause it smelled really good.
Made it close to the recipe, but was a little short on cheddar and supplemented with Jack cheese. I also added a finely diced, seeded large jalapeno just because cheese bread must have a kick in my book. I ran the loaf on 1.5 lb setting, white on my Breadman machine and it came out beautifully. It sliced fairly well, but I found it didn't toast up to brown easily. Not sure why - maybe using butter instead of my usual oil? But it tasted great and the texture was firm but moist. I definitely will make it again.
Overall I thought this bread tasted pretty good. The only thing I didn't like was the bread turned out orange instead of the cheese bits being visible which is what I was hoping would happen. A sharp white cheddar would be nice to avoid orange bread.
I was looking for a cheese bread recipe and am so glad I found this one. It is so easy and tasty. I added about 1 teaspoon dried basil but otherwise made as posted.
I love this bread recipe! My daughter gets excited every time I bake this bread. Thank you Geema for the recipe. I would not change a thing.
I made this yesterday and I thought it was very good. I didn't have packages of yeast so I used 2 and 1/4 ts of yeast. Maybe that was too much because it seemed to rise a little too much, then it fell in the center. It was still very tasty, and I'll definately make it again. Thanks so much for posting this recipe!
