Rustic Cheddar Cheese Bread Ingredients
- 1 1/2 cup Water Warm- 115 degrees
- 1 Tablespoon Sugar white granulated is great. Honey can be used for a substitute
- 1 Tablespoon yeast
- 1 cup Milk temp should be 115 degrees
- 2 large eggs
- 1 Tablespoon salt
- 6-6 1/2 cups Flour all-purpose white flour, bleached and unbleached work great
- 2 cups Cheddar Cheese
Egg Wash Mixture for Bread and Rolls
- 1 large Egg
- 1 Tablespoon Water whisk the egg and water together with a fork and brush on with a pastry brush after the the last rise.
In the bowl of an electric mixer, I used a Kitchen Aide, add the warm water (approx 115 degrees) Add the sugar and yeast. Stir or mix until all the yeast has dissolved.
Add the warm milk, eggs, salt and 2 cups of flour. mix with a bread hook attachment for 1 minute. Add the remaining 4- 4 1/2 cups of flour slowly. Add 1/2 cup of flour at a time until the dough pulls away from the side of the bowl.
When the dough pulls away from the side of the bowl, stop adding flour. Add the shredded cheese and knead for another 2 minutes. If it starts sticking again, add a little more flour.
When you have added the flour, cover the dough with a towel and let the dough rise until double. This should take about 30 minutes. Knead the dough again for 2 minutes.
Divide the dough into 2 and shape into the desired shape of bread loaves or rolls. Let the dough rise till double again.
Score the top of the cheddar cheese loaves with a knife or scoring tool. Mix up egg wash mixture and brush it on with a pastry brush.
Bake in a preheated 350-degree oven for 30-40 minutes or until *golden brown on top. (*If your dough is golden brown after 20 minutes of baking, cover the loaves loosely with aluminum foil and bake until 40 minutes is up.) Enjoy!
