Yield: 2 loaves
|2 packs||Active Dry Yeast|
|6 ounces||Sharp Cheddar Cheese; shredded|
Combine milk, ½ cup of the water, and the butter in a small saucepan and heat until butter melts. Set aside to cool.
Sprinkle the yeast over remaining water in a small bowl.Set aside to proof and soften. Place 1¾ cups of the flour, the sugar and salt in a large bowl.
Using an electric mixer, gradually add the liquids to the dry ingredients and beat 2 minutes at medium speed, scraping the sides of the bowl occasionally. Add cheese, egg and ¾ cup flour, or enough to make a thick batter.
Beat on high speed for 2 minutes, again scraping bowl occasionally.
Gradually stir in just enough of the remaining flour to make a stiff batter so it leaves the sides of the bowl. Cover with a damp cloth and let rise in a warm place until doubled in bulk, about 1 hour.
Adjust rack in the lower third of oven; preheat ot 375oF. Using a wooden spoon, stir the raised batter down until it is almost its original volume. Beat for 1 minute.
Spoon batter into 2 deep, well-greased, round, 1 quart casseroles.
Bake 40-50 minutes, or until golden. Cool 5 minutes, then remove from casseroles and cool, rounded sides up, on wire racks.
