Garlic Cheese Bread
Chef:  Nanette Conger - Fairfield, IA          Category:  Breads

3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 (14 oz.) package active dry yeast
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons garlic powder
2 large eggs, beaten
1 cup Cheddar cheese, finely shredded

Directions: Combine 1 1/2 cups flour and yeast. Heat milk, water, oil, sugar, salt and garlic powder (120 to 130°F) stirring to blend. Add to flour mixture along with eggs and cheese. Beat by hand until batter is smooth. Using a spoon, mix in remaining flour (batter will be stiff). Pour batter into well-greased 9x5x3 inch loaf pan. Let rise in a warm place until it is just to the top of the pan (about 1 hour). Bake at 375°F for 30 to 35 minutes. Cool slightly in pan before removing. Makes 1 loaf.

Notes: This bread is great toasted in the toaster or on the grill.
