Cottage Herb Bread
I just made this tonight and it turned out really well. As I have been learning to bake bread, it has helped me to make one loaf smaller than the other. That way I can take the smaller one out sooner, to get an idea on when the larger will be done. (I don't usually need two perfect loaves of bread.) :)
My loaves are still not quite perfectly formed but they are coming out delicious!
I also added parmesan to the top:
· 2 packages active dry yeast
· 1/2 cup warm water (110F.)
· 2 teaspoon sugar
· 2 cups creamed cottage cheese
· 3 tablespoons minced onion
· 2 tablespoon dill weed
· 1 tablespoon dried oregano
· ½ tablespoon cracked black pepper
· ½ tablespoon basil
· 1 teaspoon baking powder
· 2 teaspoon salt
· 2 tablespoon sugar
· 2 eggs
· 4 1/2 cups flour
Pour water into a bowl. Add two teaspoons of sugar to the water and sprinkle the yeast on top. Set aside. In another bowl combine the cottage cheese, onions, dill, oregano, black pepper, basil, baking powder, sugar, salt and eggs. Mix well. Add just enough flour to make a stiff dough. Knead the dough for 8 minutes. Place into a greased bowl and cover. Allow dough to rise for 1 hour. Punch down the dough and divide into 2 equal portions. Place dough into 2 greased loaf pans and cover. Allow to rise for 1 hour. Bake bread in a preheated oven for 30 minute at 350F. Cool on a wire rack.
