Recipe by Vino Girl
READY IN: 3hrs 15mins
YIELD: 2 loaves




  • Heat milk and butter to 120°F Combine half of flour, yeast, sugar, salt, milk and butter mixture, cheese, and garlic powder in a large bowl.
  • Knead with a mixer fitted with a dough hook at highest speed for 3 minutes.
  • Add the rest of the flour and continue kneading for 3 more minutes.
  • If the dough seems too sticky, slowly add more flour until the stickiness is corrected.
  • Place dough in a greased bowl, and spray the top of the dough with cooking spray.
  • Cover and let rise for one hour.
  • Punch the dough down and let it rest for 10 minutes.
  • Divide dough in half and form one loaf each in two greased 9 x 5 inch standard loaf pans.
  • Cover the pans with plastic wrap and allow dough to rise for 45-60 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 375°F Bake loaves for 10 minutes; then turn oven down to 350F and bake for 30-35 minutes longer, until the breads are browned.
  • Cool in the pans for 5-10 minutes; turn out onto a wire rack and allow to cool for a minimum of 5-10 more minutes so the bread firms up enough to be cut.
