My mother taught me to make this bread when I was a young girl. I have loved this recipe for years. I agree - sharp cheddar is the best cheese to use - gives it a richer taste. I love it toasted with butter!!
this is really really really GOOD a nice dense bread..I had mine hot from the oven with a BIG gob of butter that melted and dripped down my chin..so yummy.. I baked mine in a round pyrex bowl 1 1/2 quart sized..and mine "looked" done after 45 min..but didn't "sound "done with the thump it test.. so I left it in..turned off the oven and left the door open halfway.. came out perfect.. very pretty..very tasty too... this would/will be so awsome filled with a dip of some sort with this bread tore into chunks also bet it will be awsome toasted.. try it you'll like it/love it!!
