This is a yeast bread that is super simple to make. You don’t even knead it, just beat it with a spoon or use a mixer.
It is great served along side soup or salad.
Makes 2 loaves baked in 1 quart casserole dishes
4 – 5 cups all purpose flour
3 Tablespoons sugar
1 Tablespoon salt
2 packages dry yeast( 4-1/2 teaspoons, by measure)
2 cups water
1/3 cup dry non-fat milk
2 Tablespoons shortening
1-1/2 cups grated Cheddar cheese
1 egg, beaten
In a large bowl, combine 2 cups flour, sugar, salt, and yeast.
In a saucepan or microwavable bowl mix the water, dry milk, and shortening. Heat just until warm. Add it to the dry ingredients and beat with a spoon or with a mixer for a couple minutes.
Add the cheese, egg, and about a half cup flour to make a thick batter and stir or mix again for another couple minutes.
With the spoon, stir in another couple cups of flour. Just so the batter is stiff but manageable.
Cover the dough and put it in a warm place and let the dough double in size. This will take about 40 minutes or so.
Now, you need to grease your two casseroles pretty well.
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
Stir down the batter and beat vigorously for about 30 seconds.
Divide among the two casseroles.
Make for 45 minutes. To check use a toothpick inserted in the center. It will come out clean dry.
Take out and remove from pans to a wire rack to cool.
Let them sit for probably 5 – 10 minutes before cutting. Serve in wedges or slices.
