Tutmanik (Cheese Bread )

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.

This was very good bread. My DH gave it 5 stars, I would give it 4 for flavor but 5 for ease of preparation. It was so quick and easy to prepare that it could be made with any week night meal. I think it would be good with a little parmesan mixed in or sprinkled on top--I don't know how authentic it would be, but it would taste great. Thanks for posting Nick's mom. Made and reviewed for ZWT4.

Nice bread, has kind of cakey texture, I love the fact that there was no kneading, just mix it together and cook it. The flavour was quite mild so I would probably add some garlic as one reviewer suggested if I was to make it again. Made for ZWT 4.
