This is authentic ciambellotto, a sweet loaf my great-grandmother used to bake in Italy. I still use her traditional recipe—the only update I made was for modern appliances.—Denise Perrin, Vancouver, Washington
"This crunchy, delicious bread is a hit with my husband and children," writes Ann Jacobsen of Oakland, Michigan. "It's a fun accompaniment to any meal you make on the grill—the garlic flavor really comes through."
"I've worked as a manager of a fast food restaurant for 12 year," relates John Palmer of Cottonwood, California. "At home, I like to cook up different things using everyday ingredients." John gives a buttery loaf of French bread plenty of flavor simply with salad dressing mix and garlic powder.
"I've been using a bread machine for 4 years now and wonder how I ever got along without it," marvels Jim Bodle of Clockville, New York. He shares this recipe for a moist, pretty-colored loaf. Flavorful slices of the mild cheese bread are great for sandwiches.
You're sure to love the heavenly aroma and pleasant herb flavor of this tender bread from Lois Gelzer of Standish, Maine. "It's great with spaghetti and meatballs or most any Italian pasta dish," she suggests.
"With its pretty color and cheesy topping, this buttery bread is delicious with soups," reports Sue Burton of Frankfort, Kansas. "Our daughter loves to help press out the thawed bread dough and sprinkle it with cheese."
