Cheddar Olive Loaf

 Cheddar Olive Loaf
Made in the bread machine, this moist loaf has nice texture and great flavor. The cheese also gives the bread an appealing light orange tint. It smells so good while baking that I can hardly wait until it's done and cool enough to slice! -Catherine Dawe, Kent, Ohio
