 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    2      teaspoons     active dry yeast
    3      cups          bread flour
      1/4  cup           nonfat dry milk
    1 1/4  teaspoons     lecithin -- optional
    2      tablespoons   whey -- optional
    1      tablespoon    butter -- softened
    1      teaspoon      salt
    2      tablespoons   sugar
    1 1/4  cups          warm water
    2      cups          shredded cheddar cheese -- at room temperature
           dash          tabasco sauce -- optional
 
 Reserve 1 1/2 cups of the shredded cheddar cheese.  Place remaining
 ingredients into bread machine pan in the order recommended by the
 manufacturer.  Use the Dough/Manual cycle.
 
 At the end of the cycle, remove the dough from the bread pan.  If desired,
 place the dough in a greased bowl, cover and allow to rise for about 30
 minutes; this step can be skipped.  
 
 Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface.  Roll it into as long a
 rope as possible without stretching or tearing - about 24 - 30".  Flatten
 the rope slightly.  Sprinkle 1 cup of the reserved cheddar cheese along the
 length of the rope, then start at one end and coil the rope.
 
 Turn the coil onto a flat side.  Pinch it and turn it over several times in
 order to close the seams and mold a nice shape.  You don't want to turn it on
 its side; just turn it top-to-bottom on the flat sides of the coil.  (I hope
 you can picture this.)   Cover loosely and let rise for about 30 minutes, or
 until doubled in bulk.
 
 Bake in a 350x oven for 30 minutes.  Sprinkle remaining 1/2 cup or so of
 cheese on the top of the loaf; return to the oven for 10 - 15 minutes, or
 until the cheese is melted and the loaf sounds hollow when tapped.

 NOTES : This cheese bread reveals an attractive swirl of cheese when sliced.
  
 
 The cheese bread is my own innovation.  I hope you like these.
