Artisan Breads Every Day - Soft Cheese Bread

And still more recipe results from Peter Reinhart's Artisan Bread Every Day.

Soft Cheese Bread

This is one of those breads I can't quit eating. The flavor is full bodied and astounding. This is no Wonder Bread! It needs no butter or any other spread to be good. I wish I knew better how to describe flavors!

This bread recipes calls for 6 1/4 cups of flour. I replaced 3 of those cups with whole wheat flour and increased the water by 1/4 cup. I also added 2 T of vital gluten. We prefer whole grains and this change was perfect to our tastes. I didn't have any chives so used only diced onions. (The recipe includes both options.) I grated Cheddar cheese.

The recipe makes two large loaves. I made one long freestanding loaf and two pans of spiral rolls. The rolls were perfect for wrapping up for gifts.

This easy to make bread will return to our table in future days.


  1. This looks so good. What a fun gift this blog will be for your daughters. Sj

  2. This looks delicious! I tried your way of twisting the cinnamon bread, and it turned out beautifully.

  3. Gifts? Did you say gifts??? I'll be checking the front porch!! *L*

    I made some of your Country bread today and it turned out salty!!!! I think I wasn't paying attention and accidentally made it 1 heaping T of salt!! The girls ate it without complaint! *L*

  4. I keep finding more and more to read......I am joining your blog, and have linked to yours on my own, encouraging others to come and read the treasure trove I have found here. I like the bulk cooking...and baking. But I like you, start to get tired at about 1and have to know when to stop. I will continue to read and learn.


I love to hear from you.
