Aussie Cheddar Cheese Bread
1 cup milk
2 tbsp. sugar
1 tbsp. butter
2 tsp. salt
1 envelope active dry yeast
1 cup warm water
6 to 7 cups flour divided
2 cups Murray Bridge Australian Cheddar Cheese coarsely shredded
Scald milk with sugar, butter and salt in a small saucepan; cool until warm.
In a large mixing bowl, sprinkle yeast over warm water and lightly stir to dissolve.
Let stand for 5 minutes until it begins to foam. Add milk mixture and 2 cups flour
to bowl to form a soft dough. Gradually beat in enough of the remaining flour so
that dough is not sticky, then mix in cheese. Turn onto a lightly floured board and
knead for about 10 minutes until dough is smooth and elastic. Place in a lightly
oiled bowl and turn to coat; cover with a clean dish towel. Let stand in a warm
place to rise for 1 hour. Punch down dough and knead several times; divide in
half and shape into 2 balls.
Place each into a lightly greased loaf pan. Cover and let rise again for 45
minutes or until doubled in bulk. Preheat oven to 350°F. Bake dough for 45 to
50 minutes or until bread sounds hollow when tapped. Let cool on wire racks.

Makes 2 loaves.
