Soft Cheese Bread


Ingredients:
6 1/2 cups unbleached bread flour can use all purpose, if that's all you have (28oz)
2 tsp fine salt (0.5oz) or 1 Tbsp. coarse kosher salt
5 Tbsp white sugar (2.25oz) or 5 Tbsp brown sugar or 3 1/2 Tbsp. honey or agave nectar
1 cup lukewarm water (8oz) about 95F (for even softer bread, use 1 cup water leftover from boiling potatoes, cooled)
1 cup plus 2 Tbsp lukewarm buttermilk (9oz) or milk
1 1/2 Tbsp instant yeast (0.5oz)
1/4 cup melted unsalted butter (2oz) or vegetable oil
2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1/4 cup minced herbs (parsley and chives are good choices)
1 1/2 cups freshly grated Parmesan


Instructions:
  • In a mixing bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer, combine the flour, salt and sugar* together. (Tip: If measuring your flour in cups, without a scale, hold back 1 cup to add as needed later). *If you're using honey or agave, add with the liquid ingredients instead.
  • In a large measuring cup or bowl, combine the water and buttermilk and whisk in the yeast until dissolved. Add this mixture, along with the melted butter, to the dry ingredients. Mix by hand or with a dough hook, until the mixture is combined, about 2 minutes. Let the dough rest for 5 minutes.
  • Continue mixing the dough, adding more flour or water, as needed, until the dough becomes soft, smooth and tacky, but not sticky.
