Dill Wheat Bread Recipe

“My house smells terrific when this wonderful bread is in the oven. It makes a fantastic meal served with soup. Cut thick slices with an electric knife and eat them while they’re still warm. Yum!”—Beverly Preston Fond du Lac, Wisconsin
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. + rising Bake: 30 min. YIELD:12 servings


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon dried minced onion
  • 1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
  • 2 teaspoons dill weed
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup (8 ounces) cream-style cottage cheese
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 egg
  • 2 teaspoons butter, melted
  • Coarse salt, optional


  • 1. In a large bowl, combine 3/4 cup all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, sugar, onion, yeast, dill and salt. In a small saucepan, heat the cottage cheese, water and 1 tablespoon butter to 120°-130°. Add to dry ingredients; beat just until moistened. Add egg; beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining all-purpose flour to form a soft dough (dough will be sticky).
  • 2. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease the top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  • 3. Punch dough down. Shape into a loaf. Place in a greased 8-in. x 4-in. loaf pan. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 45 minutes.
  • 4. Bake at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Remove to a wire rack. Brush with melted butter; sprinkle with coarse salt if desired. Yield: 1 loaf (12 slices).
