This wholesome bread is delicious by itself or for sandwiches. In this recipe, use creamed cottage cheese, which has cream added to it. Enjoy! Prep time includes rising time.
- 4 -5 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 2 packages active dry yeast
- 1 cup water
- 1⁄2 cup honey
- 1⁄4 cup margarine or 1⁄4 cup butter
- 1 cup cream-style cottage cheese
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- 1⁄2 cup rolled oats
- 1 cup chopped nuts
- In large bowl, combine 2 cups all purpose flour, salt and yeast; blend well.
- In medium saucepan, heat water, honey, margarine and cottage cheese until very warm (120 to 130*).
- Margarine does not need to melt completely.
- Add warm liquid and eggs to flour mixture.
- Blend at low speed until moistened; beat 3 minutes at medium speed.
- By hand, stir in whole wheat flour, oats, nuts and enough all purpose flour to form a soft dough.

- Place in greased bowl; cover loosely with plastic wrap and cloth towel.
- Let rise in warm place (80 to 85*) until light and doubled in size, about 1 hour.
- Generously grease two 8x4 or 9x5-inch loaf pans.
- Punch down dough.
- Divide dough into 2 parts; shape into loaves.
- Place in greased pans.
- Cover; let rise in warm place until light and doubled in size, about 1 hour.
- Heat oven to 375*.
- Uncover dough.
- Bake 35 to 40 minutes or until loaves sound hollow when lightly tapped.
- Immediately remove from pans; cool on wire racks.
- For softer crusts, brush tops of loaves with melted margarine, if desired.
- Yield: 2 (16 slice) loaves.
Sharon, loved this bread and it makes great grilled ham and cheese! Halved recipe and threw it in the bread machine....worked like a dream! TY for a keeper!
Very delicious healthy bread! I also halved the recipe, and used my bread machine. Will be making again soon!
Oh my...this is an exceptional recipe. I always double it...there is always someone dropping by for eggs and I give them a loaf of this bread (when it is fresh). And the feedback is wonderful. It is definately a keeper! Thank you!
