Cheddar-Topped English Muffin Bread

Slices of this firm bread have the great English muffin texture your family is sure to love. A sprinkling of shredded cheddar cheese give a pretty golden-brown color to the top of the loaves. —Anne Smithson of Cary, North Carolina

    quick and easy--lots of nooks and crannies toi catch butter and jam. this bread toasts up nicely and tasts great!! i generally forgo the cheese on top and make it plain. makes excellent frilled cheese sandwiches as well. my kids love it--they are used to homemade bread. karen
