Cheese Bread

Soli Deo Gloria of Heart and Hearth, tagged me to participate the World Food Day is another very worthwhile event for Breadline Africa.With our support, Breadline Africa can convert shipping containers into locations for food production and distribution to the poor people in South Africa. These sustainable community kitchens will not only provide foods such as bread and soup to those in need, but also opportunities for skills development within these poor communities. So, they are not only aiming to give them bread, but also to teach them skills so that they will be able to earn their own bread as well.Breadline Africa launched the Worldwide Blogger Baker Bake-Off Challenge aiming at raising $ 1 M in funds. This bake-off gives us baking bloggers the power to make a difference in this world. What do we do? Bake bread. Give Dough. Feed Africa. Vals says, "You can sign up for the campaign, make a donation, upload your bread recipes and document your culinary adventures in the media center to spread the word. You don't have to donate money but simply just mention the campaign and create awareness." .Here is my humble Cheese Bread:)


1 tbsp active yeast

1 cup lukewarm milk

2 tbsp butter

3 cups bread flour

1 tbsp sugar

2 tsp salt

1 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese


1:Combine yeast ,sugar and milk,stir and leave for 15 minutes to dissolve.Melt butter,let cool and add to the yeast mixture.

2:Mix the flour and salt together in a large bowl.Make a well in the center and pour in the yeast mixture.

3:With a wooden spoon,stir from the center,incorporating flour with each turn,to obtain a rough dough.If the dough seems too dry,add 2-3 tbsp water.

4:Transfer to a floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic.(I used my Kitchen Aid mixer to knead the dough).Return to the bowl,cover until double in volume or 2-3 hours.

5:Grease a 9 x5 inch bread pan.Punch down the dough with your fist.Knead in the cheese,distributing it as evenly as possible.

6:Fold the dough,form into a loaf shape in the pan,tucking the ends under.Leave in a warm place until the dough rises above the rim of the pan.Sprinkle some grated cheddar cheese on the top.

7:Preheat the oven to 400 F.Bake for 15 minutes,then lower the heat to heat 375 F and bake until the bottom sounds hollow when tapped about 30 minutes more.Cool on a rack.
