Instructions – Bread Machine – Cheese Bread

  • Mix the water and instant nonfat milk powder first.
  • Pour this instant milk into the bread pan and then add the other ingredients. Place the bread machine yeast in last and the yeast should not touch the liquid (until the bread machine is turned on and the ingredients start to be mixed together).
  • Start the machine going after checking the settings.
  • After the FINAL kneading cycle and before the baking cycle commences, sprinkle some shredded cheese on top of the dough.
  • When the bread machine has finished baking the bread, you should remove the bread and place it on a cooling rack. Use oven mitts when removing the bread machine container (bread loaf pan) as it will be very hot!
  • After removing the bread, don’t forget to remove the mixing paddle if it is stuck in the bread. Use oven mitts as the mixing paddle will be very hot coming out of the bread machine. Or wait until the bread is completely cooled and then remove the mixing paddle.
  • In our bread machine, the baking takes about 3 hours for a 2 pound bread at the light color & basic bread settings. However, some machines can differ and you don’t want to be away from home when the bread machine “finished” alarm goes off! Your bread machine should show you the length of the baking time after you have entered the settings into the machine. This will allow you to know when to be in the kitchen in order to remove the bread.
  • Before using your bread machine, you should read the bread machine manufacturer’s  instructions in order to use the bread machine effectively and safely.

Tips – Cheese Bread Recipe for Bread Machine

  • Don’t add too much shredded cheese to the top of the dough after the final kneading… or your bread top might become a sticky mess! Just a little sprinkle of cheese.
  • Use your family’s favorite cheese. I used a mixed cheese package for this cheese bread machine recipe because my family finds the taste of cheddar cheese too overpowering.
