I often serve this cheddar bread along with bowls of steaming homemade soup. It helps warm my cattle-raiser husband and our two sons on chilly evenings up here in Canada. Baking for family and neighbors keeps me busy. Just yesterday, when he was here to check the herd, our veterinarian paid me quite a compliment. I served him some cinnamon buns I'd made-and, after tasting them, he said I should open my own coffee shop!

"This was quick and easy to make, and sliced beautifully, but it lacked flavor. Tasted too bland and floury. I will add a little more "zip" if I make it again."

"This is a 10 star recipe. OMG, this is good, and my family loves it. I bake bread all the time, and cannot believe how easy this recipe is. Thanks so much. From a fellow Canadian, Shannon."

"I love this recipe; it is quick and easy, always well received. If I find I have unused cheddar that is looking like it might start to mold, I shave the top layer off and I make a batch of this bread and pop it in the freezer to use later. Who doesn't like homemade bread?"

"This was really good, and really pretty easy. Let it rest in the pan 5-10 minutes before trying to take it out of the pan. It was good with a Sharp Cheddar."
