About this Recipe

This recipe makes 2 loaves


1 tsp sugar
1.5 cups warm water
8 g dry yeast
.33 cups vegetable oil
1 tsp salt
2 tsp hot sauce
1 egg
2 cups shredded old cheddar cheese
4.5 cups flour


Dissolve sugar in warm water in large bowl. Sprinkle in yeast. Let stand 10 minutes, then stir well.
Beat in oil, salt, hot pepper sauce and egg until smoothly blended.
Stir in 2 cups (500 mL) flour. Beat well. Add more flour until mixture becomes too stiff to stir and cleans sides of bowl. Turn out onto lightly floured board.
Knead dough, adding more flour as necessary to make a soft dough. Continue kneading until dough is smooth, elastic and no longer sticky (about 10 minutes).
Place in lightly greased bowl. Turn dough to grease top. Cover with parchment paper and tea towel.
Let Rise in warm place (75°-85°F/24°-29°C) until doubled (45 to 60 minutes).
Punch Down. Turn out onto lightly floured board. Knead in 1.5 cups shredded cheddar cheese until well distributed. Divide into 2 equal portions.
Shape each portion into a loaf. Place seam side down in 2 well greased 8 1/2" x 4 1/2" x 2 3/4" (1.5 L ) loaf pans. Cover with tea towel.
Let Rise in warm place until dough rises 1 1/2" (3 cm) above top of pan in centre and corners are filled (45 to 60 minutes).
Preheat oven to 375°F/190°C
Sprinkle remaining cheese on loaves.
Bake on lower rack of preheated oven for 30 to 35 minutes. Remove from pans immediately and cool on wire racks.
