Cheddar-Dill Bread Recipe

"With soup and salad, this savory cheese bread sparked with dill makes a terrific meal," assesses Karen Gardiner of Eutaw, Alabama.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. Bake: 35 min. + cooling YIELD:16 servings


  • 2 cups self-rising flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/4 cup cold butter, cubed
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 2 teaspoons dill weed
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup milk


  • 1. In a large bowl, combine flour and sugar. Cut in butter until crumbly; stir in the cheese and dill. In a small bowl, beat egg and milk; pour into dry ingredients and stir just until moistened. (Batter will be very thick.) Pour into a greased 8-in. x 4-in. loaf pan. Bake at 350° for 35-40 minutes or until bread tests done. Cool in pan 10 minutes before removing to a wire rack. Yield: 1 loaf.
Editor's Note: As a substitute for each cup of self-rising flour, place 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a measuring cup. Add all-purpose flour to measure 1 cup.
