Cheesy Batter Bread

Here’s a quick bread recipe. I’m really glad I remembered I had this one too, since I have a package of cheddar I picked up several weeks ago when it was on sale. It’s fine – no mold or anything, just has gotten quite sharp. I like sharp cheese (I remember my dad did too), but the others in the fam aren’t too much of a fan. Whatever kind of cheese you have will work. This is a good one all by itself, or with a bowl of soup, or with a salad. (Hint: I like it best warmed 5 – 10 seconds in the microwave if it’s not hot.)
Ingredients:
1/2 Cup butter
1/2 Cup warm milk
1/4 Cup warm water
2 1/2 Cup flour, divided
1 pkg. (2 teaspoons) yeast
2 Cups (8 oz.) shredded cheese
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon sugar
3 eggs

Directions:
Warm butter, milk, and water together. In a large bowl, combine 1 1/2 cup flour and all other ingredients. Beat 3 minutes at medium speed. By hand, stir in remaining 1 cup flour. Cover.

Let rise until light, ~ 45-60 minutes.

 

 

Grease a 9×5 loaf pan (I use a nine-inch round Pyrex). Stir down dough, place in pan. Bake at 375º (350º for glass pan) 40-45 minutes.

 

 

When it comes out of the oven and is still hot, I like to coat the top with a generous coat of butter, then sprinkle with coarse kosher salt.
