Roasted Garlic and Cheddar Bread from scratch


  • 1 1/8 cup warm water
  • 1 packet yeast
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • ¼ cup parmesan
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons powdered milk
  • 1 bulb roasted garlic
  • 4 oz sharp cheddar, cubed


Add water, honey, and yeast to bread machine pan. I think I may have poured more than 3 tablespoons of honey. Let sit for a while until it starts getting kind of foamy.

While you wait, cube the cheese and set it in the freezer. Add flour and the rest of your ingredients (except the cheese and garlic) to the machine. Set on dough cycle and start.

My dough cycle take 90 minutes. Dump the doughball on an oiled piece of wax paper. Place the cheese cubes and roasted garlic cloves all over the top of the dough, and then knead them in. Stretch and twist the dough into a long loaf, and place on a cookie sheet, diagonally if needed to fit. I lined mine with parchment paper. Cover with the oiled wax paper and place in a warm area of your kitchen to rise while the oven preheats. I set mine next to the oven.

Preheat your oven to 400. When it comes up to temperature, open and turn it down to 350. Uncover dough and bake for 20 minutes, then check it. It will probably need about 7 more minutes to start turning a nice golden in places.

Remove from oven and let cool.
