Recipe: Buttermilk Cheese Bread (Bread Machine)

This soft, cheesy, chewy bread is perfect to have ready for weekend lunches.  We eat it plain as a snack or with Bacon Lettuce and Tomatoe sandwiches.  This bread is very tender, moist, and flakey and oh so good.  Usually when I make this, the whole loaf is gone within a couple hours.

The recipe comes from my favourite cookbook for bread machines The Bread Machine Baker by Elizabeth M Harbison.  Another recipe I posted from this book was Cinnamon Sugar Bread which we love to eat toasted.  As I do with all my breads, I let them cool completely, then cut them with an electric knife.

from The Bread Machine Baker

2 teaspoons or 1/2 package of yeast
2 cups bread flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 Tablespoon sugar
1 cup buttermilk
1 cup grated sharp cheddar (or 1/2 cup each blue cheese and cheddar).

Add all the ingredients to the machine in the order listed.  Choose either regular or light crust (depending on your preference) and push "Start".

    Thank you so much for this bread recipe; you actually are spurring me to make some of that bread! It sounds pretty easy to make and utterly delicious!

  5. This looks so good and we love cinnamon toast! I am going to send to my mom who just got a bread machine!
    Hope you are having a great week!

  6. Bread machines are so 90's but you can deny the conveniece or how wonderful your house smells when a loaf is almost done. I bought mine at a thrift sale for $2. I bombed quite a few loaves before I figured out how to use it correctly with this cookbook. I made a raisin bread in it yesterday and will post recipe later.

    Thank you for the sweet comments everyone :)
