Cheese Bread - Ostebrød

Makes 2 loaves

Stir sugar and salt into the hot milk and let cool to lukewarm.

Soften the yeast in the warm water until dissolved. Combine the 2 mixtures and blend well. Add 2½ cups flour and stir until smooth. Add the grated cheese. Mix well. Add enough of the rest of the flour to make a stiff dough.

Put dough on a floured board and knead it for about 10 minutes. Place it in a greased bowl and let it rise in a warm place until doubled in bulk. Put it back on the board and shape into 2 loaves.

Bake in greased loaf pans (9×5×3) about 35 minutes in a preheated 375° oven.
