Golden Cheese Yeast Bread
My husband, Mark, and I wanted a causal wedding and decided on a cold plate buffet supper. This fun cheesy bread baked by my mom was a special addition.
Total TimePrep: 20 min. + rising Bake: 25 min.
Makes2 loaves (16 slices each)
- 6 to 7 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
- 3 tablespoons sugar
- 2 packages (1/4 ounce each) active dry yeast
