    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    This is a wonderful recipe for cheese bread, if you don't want to add in grated cheddar, add in small cubes of cheddar by hand after kneading. This can also be made on a stand mixer with a dough hook attached. If desired you can add in about 2 tablespoons room temperature Crisco shortening in with the yeast, warm water, sugar and salt, the bread will stay fresher longer and bake out with a softer texture.

      This is a wonderful recipe. I used 1/4 white & 3/4 whole wheat flour. I omitted the caraway seeds and onion. I split the dough into 3 and braided the strips, let it rise again, brushed it with the egg white wash & topped it with more grated cheese. It turned out really really nice. I uploaded a picture of the finished loaf.

      I made the dough in my automatic bread maker, punched it down, put it in a 9" loaf pan and let it rise again. Before baking it, I coated the top with Kittencal's suggestion of an egg white and water wash and sesame seeds. After baking it, the bread looked like it came from a specialty bread shop! The taste was really good. I could live without the caraway seeds but my husband liked the flavor the seeds gave the bread. This is a great bread recipe.
