Emily’s Garlic Cheese Bread,
Makes 2 loaves
My daughter Emily loves to cook in the kitchen. She loves to dabble with recipes and tweak them and create!
She made this bread the other night to go with our dinner. We had split pea soup with bits of home grown bacon in it, a nice green salad and this wonderful Garlic Cheese Bread.
1 T yeast
2 c warm milk
¼ c butter
1/3 c gluten flour
5 to 6 cups whole wheat flour
1 T salt
2 cups grated cheese
1 t minced garlic
In a Bosch bowl or Kitchen Aid bowl or any brand mixer you may have (or a mixing bowl if making bread by hand) combine the yeast and milk and let this sit for about 5 to 10 minutes.
Melt the butter and let it cool. While the butter is cooling add the gluten flour, half of the whole wheat flour and salt to the yeast and milk mixture. Stir a few times and then add the butter. Stir again and begin to incorporate the rest of the flour about ¼ cup at a time. When you have most of the flour incorporated then add the cheese and garlic. Continue to add the rest of the flour. If using a mixer add flour until the dough no longer sticks to the side of the mixing bowl. If making bread by hand, continue to add flour until the dough no longer seems sticky.
Knead with a Bosch for 5 minutes. Knead with a Kitchen Aid about 7 minutes. Knead by hand about 15 minutes.
If you are using a Bosch you can form the dough into 2 loaves and transfer to a bread pan that has been sprayed with a non-stick spray and continue on with the instructions, skipping the next part which includes a second rise. If you are using any other type mixer or making bread by hand cover the dough with a cloth and let rise in a warm spot until doubled in bulk. This could take an hour or so.
After the rise time, punch down and shape into 2 loaves. Put the loaves into bread pans that have been greased or sprayed with a non-stick spray. Let them rise until they are about 1 inch above the top of the bread pan.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Bake for 15 minutes. Reduce the oven temp to 375 and bake for another 30 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.
This bread goes wonderfully with homemade soup of any kind!!
