A delightful hint of cheddar cheese permeates this golden loaf.
3 cups King Arthur Unbleached Special Bread Flour
1 teaspoon instant yeast
1/2 teaspoon tomato powder
1 teaspoon pizza dough flavor
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 1/2 tablespoons butter or margarine, room temperature
1/3 to 1/2 cup water
2/3 cup milk
1 heaping cup (4 1/2 ounces) shredded sharp cheddar cheese
In a large bowl, mix together all of the dry ingredients. Add the butter or margarine, water, and milk, and stir to form a shaggy mass. Let the mixture sit for 15 minutes, then knead it, by hand or machine, until you've formed a smooth, elastic dough. Knead in the cheese, place the dough in a greased bowl, cover it, and let it rise for 1 hour; it should be puffy, though not doubled in size. Turn the dough out onto a lightly greased or floured work surface, and shape it into a loaf. Place it in an 8 1/2 x 4 1/2-inch loaf pan, let it rise for about 1 hour, and bake the bread in a preheated 375°F oven for 25 minutes, or until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center reads 190°F. Note: If the bread appears to be browning too quickly, tent it lightly with aluminum foil after the first 15 minutes of baking. Yield: 1 loaf.
