Golden Cheddar Loaf
Makes 1 loaf.
3-1/2 to 4 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons sugar
1 envelope FLEISCHMANN’S RapidRise Yeast
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup water
1/3 cup milk
1-1/2 cups (6 ounces) grated sharp Cheddar cheese
1 egg white, lightly beaten with 1 tablespoon water
In large bowl, combine 1-1/2 cups flour, sugar, undissolved yeast, and salt. Heat water and milk until very warm (120 to 130oF); stir into flour mixture. Stir in enough remaining flour to make soft dough. Knead on lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic, about 6 to 8 minutes. Cover; let rest on floured surface 10 minutes.
Knead in cheese. Divide dough into 3 equal pieces; roll each piece to 14-inch rope. Braid ropes; pinch ends to seal. Place dough in greased 8-1/2 x 4-1/2-inch loaf pan. Cover; let rise in warm, draft-free place until doubled in size, about 30 to 45 minutes.
Brush loaf with egg white mixture. Bake at 375oF for 30 to 35 minutes or until done. Remove from pan; let cool on wire rack.
