DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease 1-1/2 quart baking dish or two 9x5x3-inch loaf pans. (I used ungreased non-stick loaf pans.).
  • Scald milk. (To scald, heat milk in non-stick saucepan until milk begins to stick to sides). Add sugar, salt, and butter; mix well. Set aside to cool until lukewarm.
  • Pour WARM water into large bowl and add yeast; stir until dissolved.
  • Add lukewarm milk mixture, cheese, and flour. Stir until well blended (about 2 minutes).
  • Cover and place bowl in warm draft-free area until dough has risen to more than double in size (about 45 minutes).
  • Stir batter down. Beat vigorously about 2-1/2 minutes. Pour batter into pan(s).
  • Bake uncovered for about 1 hour. Cool slightly, then remove from pan and cool on rack.
  • NOTES: Instructions from 1963 yeast pkg - "Dissolve 1 package yeast by stirring into WARM water (105-115 degrees), using amounts specified in recipe. Use dissolved yeast as directed.".
