Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine 2 cups flour, cornmeal, yeast and salt. In a large saucepan, heat the water, molasses and butter to 120°-130°. Add to dry ingredients; beat just until moistened. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.
  2. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  3. Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide in half. Work half of the cheese cubes into each portion of dough. Shape into round loaves.
  4. Place in two greased 8-in. or 9-in. round baking pans. Sprinkle with additional cornmeal. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  5. Bake at 350° for 45-50 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pan to wire racks to cool. Store in the refrigerator. Yield: 2 loaves (16 slices each).
