Cottage Cheese Bread - Homemade & Machine

Whenever I tell someone that I am making Cottage Cheese Bread I get mixed responses.  It seems a lot of people do not like the flavor of cottage cheese. But in this recipe the cottage cheese only makes the bread moist and does not flavor it.  I have made it Homemade and in my Bread Machine. First is the Homemade recipe.

1 package dry yeast
1/4 cup warm water
1 Tablespoon margarine
1 cup cottage cheese
2 Tablespoons sugar
1 Teaspoon salt
1/4 Teaspoon baking soda
1 egg, beaten
2 1/2 cups sifted flour

Dissolve yeast in warm water.
Heat margarine and cottage cheese until warm and margarine is melted. 
Add sugar, salt, soda and egg.
Posted by PicasaMix well and blend in yeast mixture.
Pour mixture into your mixing bowl, add the flour,  mix using your dough hook or mix by hand. Put onto flour surface. 
Fold dough over several times.
Leave your dough on your floured surface, cover with a towel and let rise until doubled. Fold dough over several more times. Place in a greased  9x5x3 pan, cover again with towel and let it double in size again.
Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes, or until golden brown.

  1. Oh that looks so good! As soon as I can eat wheat again, I'm making this!

  2. You could try this recipe with gluten free wheat. It should help to make it moist too. If you do please let me know how it turns out. My sister is also on a gluten free diet.

  3. I really enjoyed this bread - very good!

  4. I'd love to try this one day! I love using the breadmaker because it's so easy. Thanks for the recipe!

  5. This looks like great bread. I've been getting away from my bread machine, and making easy breads by hand. I would love this toasted and used for a sandwich. YUMMY!

  6. Love it! Can't wait to try it.
