Here’s another original that I dreamed up on one of our many rainy days! This one has a slightly lighter “crumb” than other no-knead breads, and I accomplished this by adding one beaten egg to the mixture. This is a real, stick to your ribs bread, and in case it ever cools off, it could become a favorite of your family!
12 ounces warm (100-110 degrees) water
1 packet (2 ½ teaspoons) instant dry yeast
3 cups all purpose flour, sifted
3 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 egg, beaten
¼ cup sugar or honey
1 cup French’s onions
1 cup grated, extra sharp cheddar cheese
Preheat oven to 375 degrees
Grease a 9 X 5 inch glass loaf panAdd yeast to warm water, stir, and allow it to sit for 5 minutes
Sift the flour into a large mixing bowl.
Add salt, baking powder and sugar (or honey) to the mixture
Add onions and yeast mixture to dry ingredients; stir together thoroughly
Pour mixture into prepared loaf pan
Sprinkle cheddar cheese over top
Place in oven and cook for 1 hour, or until thermometer reads 200 degrees when inserted into middle of loaf.
Remove baked loaf from loaf pan immediately and allow it to cool for 15 minutes
