A tasty bread for a buffet or for picnics. Cook time depends on machine. (Can be made in bread machine through first rise, but formed and allowed to rise second time, and baked in oven, if desired. )
- 1 cup dry white wine
- 2⁄3 cup sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 2⁄3 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 3 cups bread flour
- 2 teaspoons yeast
- Place all ingredients in bread machine pan in order recommended by manufacturer.
- Use medium crust setting.
This is a lovely savory bread! I also made mine with a stand mixer and baked in the oven. I didn't warm the wine but let the dough rise in the oven (off) over a bowl of hot water for an hour in the bowl and an hour in the loaf pan and I got a pretty good rise out of it. Baked for 10 minutes at 400 then 30 minutes at 350. The bread has a nice texture and a great bite from the sharp cheddar. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
Due to user error, I ended up having to make this twice, but I'm glad I did! This is a very dense bread, and the wine and cheese give it a nice tangy flavor. I don't have a bread machine, so I used my kitchenaid. I warmed the wine to about 110F, then dissolved the yeast in it. I added everything but the flour, and kneaded in the flour 1/2 cup at a time with the dough hook, then kneaded at low speed for about 7 minutes. Let rise, formed loaf, let rise again and baked at 375. I probably should have let it bake a little longer, but as this is a dense bread anyway, it was still good. Thanks, Mikekey, I'm looking forward to trying this again to get it just right!
