It's fun to try different things in the kitchen for me. I love to experiment. This recipe is one of those kind-of recipes. This bread is mixed then placed in a coffee can where it rises and bakes. Pretty cool, if you ask me, and a great way to turn trash into something useful. And the bread ain't bad either!
- 1⁄2 cup milk
- 1⁄2 cup water
- 1⁄4 cup sugar
- 1⁄2 cup oil
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 3 1⁄2 cups flour
- 1 (1/4 ounce) package yeast
- 2 eggs
- 6 ounces sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
- 1⁄2 teaspoon pepper
- Combine milk, water, sugar, oil, and salt in a saucepan. Heat over low heat until blended.
- Combine 1 1/2 cups flour and yeast in a large mixing bowl. Add liquid mixture to flour; beat until smooth.
- Blend in eggs, cheese, and pepper. Stir in 2 cups of flour to make a stiff batter. Beat until smooth and elastic.
- Spoon into 2 greased 1-pound coffee cans. Cover with the plastic lids. Let rise in a warm place for one hour or until light and bubbly. Batter should be 1/2 inch below can cover.
- Remove lids. Bake at 375 degrees for 30-35 minutes. Cool for 15 minutes. Remove from cans and cool on a wire rack.
Excellent bread. I found on ebay someone who was selling ground coffee in 1 lb cans. Could not find in food stores any 1 lb. So I got my cans and coffee at the same time.
Does anyone still find coffee in a one pound can with the plastic lids? The only ones I have been able to find are just 13 ounces, and that changes everything. I have a favorite coffee can batter bread, but I can't make it anymore because of not being able to find the cans anymore. Imagine trying to make bread in those plastic containers!!
