    Units: US | Metric



    • 1 egg white
    • 1 tablespoon water


    1. 1
      Dissolve yeast and 1 tsp sugar in 1/4 cup water and let stand 5-10 minutes to proof until foamy. Add milk, 2 tbs sugar, butter, salt, and enough flour to make a soft dough. Knead until soft and smooth.
    2. 2
      Grease a bowl with oil. Place dough in oiled bowl and turn to coat all sides. Cover and let rise until double in bulk, 60-90 minutes.
    3. 3
      Grease a 9″ spring form pan very well. Mix together filling ingredients until well-combined.
    4. 4
      Punch down dough, shape into a ball, and roll to a 20″ circle. Ease dough into pan (fold in half to lift and unfold in pan), letting excess hang over the edge.
    5. 5
      Mound cheese filling onto dough in pan and bring dough up over the filling, folding to make 8-12 evenly spaced pleats. Twist and pinch ends together in the center to make a rough knob.
    6. 6
      Cover with a buttered 12″ square of waxed paper and let rise until double in bulk, 30-45 minutes. Remove and discard waxed paper.
    7. 7
      Beat together egg white and water with a fork. Brush top of dough with glaze.
    8. 8
      Bake in a preheated 375F oven 40-50 minutes, or until deep golden brown. Remove bread from pan, place directly on oven rack, and bake for an additional 5 minutes to brown bottom crust.
    9. 9
      Cool on rack at least 45 minutes before cutting into wedges.

      This was a total waste of my time! I followed the recipe to a 'T' and it just turned out awful! The bread was more like pizza crust, the dough never rose, either time. A disappointment.
