This bread machine cheese bread recipe is simple to make and is quite delicious. It also looks great. I don’t know much about art… but this cheese bread loaf looks almost like a crazy Jackson Pollock painting! The cheese topping on this “abstract art” cheese bread loaf is certainly a conversation starter.
1 1/8Cups- Milk(lukewarm) – 1 1/8 cups of milk is equivalent to 1 cup and 2 tablespoons of milk
4Tablespoons - Unsalted Butter(softened)
3Cups- Bread Flour
1Cup - Shredded Cheese
1Tablespoon - Brown Sugar
1Teaspoon - Italian Herbs Seasoning(optional)
1 1/2Teaspoons - Salt
1 1/2Teaspoons - Bread Machine Yeast
Bread machine settings – 2 pound loaf, light color and “basic” bread setting.
Pour the milk into the bread pan and then add the other ingredients (including the cup of cheese). 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).
Plug in bread machine. Enter the correct settings (basic, light color & 2 lb) and press the “start” button.
Optional - After the FINAL kneading cycle and BEFORE the baking cycle commences, sprinkle a little extra shredded cheese on top of the dough. For safety reasons, do not place your hands inside the bread machine.
When the bread machine has finished baking the bread, unplug the bread machine. 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.
