24 servings


  • 1 package dry active yeast
  • 3/4 cup warm water (105 to 120°F)
  • 1/4 cup milk, scalded
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup Pure Vegetable Oil
  • 3 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 teaspoon dillweed
  • 2 teaspoons minced onion
  • 3 cups White Lily® Enriched Unbleached Bread Flour, divided
  • No-Stick Cooking Spray
  • 1 cup (4 oz.) grated sharp Cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted


  1. DISSOLVE yeast in warm water in large bowl. Stir in milk, sugar, salt, oil, eggs, dillweed, onion and 2 cups flour.
  2. BEAT until thoroughly mixed and smooth. Add remaining 1 cup flour; mix well (dough will be stiff but sticky). Cover with damp, lint-free cloth or plastic wrap; let rise in warm place until doubled in size, about 1 1/2 hours.
  3. SPRAY a 9-inch glass pie plate or 1 1/2 quart glass casserole with no-stick cooking spray. Add cheese to dough; stir gently until evenly distributed. Place in prepared pie plate or casserole. Cover; let rise in warm place until double in size, about 45 minutes.
  4. HEAT oven to 375°F. Brush top of dough lightly with melted butter.
  5. BAKE 30 to 35 minutes. Remove from pie plate or casserole; brush top with melted butter. Serve warm.

Baking Tip

To freeze quick bread, cool completely and wrap tightly in plastic wrap or foil. Wrap slices individually for quicker thawing. Use within 1 month.

Baking Tip

To knead dough, shape it into a flattened ball. Push it away from you, then fold it toward you. Turn and repeat until it's smooth and elastic, about 5-10 minutes.
