Pop-Up Bread

Submitted By: Marie Delffs


  • 3 to 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, divided
  • 1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded Cheddar cheese
  • Instructions

    Combine 1 1/2 cups flour with yeast. Heat milk, water, oil, sugar, and salt until warm (120-130°), stirring to blend. Add to flour mixture along with eggs and cheese. Beat with an electric mixter or by hand until batter is smooth.
    Using a spoon, mix in remaining flour (batter will be stiff). Divide batter, and spoon into two well-greased, one-pound coffee cans. Cover with plastic lids and let rise in a warm place until batter is about 1/4 to 1/2 inch below plastic lids, about 45 to 60 minutes. Remove lids and bake at 375° for 30-35 minutes. Cool for 15 minutes in cans before removing. Cool on wire rack.
