Tutmanik (Cheese Bread )

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Brenda.

Adapted from Bulgarian Rhapsody By Linda Joyce Forristal. Edited to add.... After a suggestion from a reviewer, I have added 1 tbs of sugar and 1/2 tsp baking soda to the ingredients. I tried it with these additional ingredients and while still moist, it is not overly moist. Thanks so much for the feedback =0)

This was a different kind of bread for us. We baked longer than indicated and it was still a bit doughy. Maybe we will like better toasted. This was prepared for ZWT4 Eastern European Holiday challenge.
