    Chipfo's Note:

    This is a very delicious bread with an Italian cheese filling, I have been making it for years and am never disappointed. Very easy to make, it is a yeast batter bread so no kneading is required, I like to cut into this and serve while it is still warm. The cheese is actually a filling and not mixed in with the batter.

      DH and I enjoyed this bread with Baked Penne pasta tonight. I agree with others that the filling really didn't have too much flavor; perhaps the mozzarella is a little mild. However, this was pretty easy to make and the bread was really good. I did make half a recipe and made in a loaf pan since there's only the 2 of us. Oh, and I didn't have any sesame seeds, so left that out. Made this for Zaar Cookbook Tag.

      We were not overly impressed by the filling (maybe it should be increased to really add to the flavor of the bread). However, the bread itself has such an incredible texture that we are giving it 5 stars anyway. I don't know what size my bundt pan is but it is not big enough for the amount of dough. The second time I baked it in 2 loaf pans - no cheese filling - and it turned out great! Note: yeast = 4.5 tsp.

      This bread was so easy to put together! I love the tecnique of using a bundt pan. I would say next time I make this I would definatly double the filling or use a stronger flavor of cheese, but I can't really complain too much since it baked perfectly in 30 minutes and was a great texture! I sliced this up and made garlic toast with it and it was very good. Thanks for posting!
