“The original recipe was in the instruction book for my ABM (an Oster 2 Pound Expressbake). This bread is quite dense and very moist with a crisp crust. It slices easily and makes wonderful toast and sandwiches. It’s our favorite of all the recipes I’ve tried so far. The cottage cheese is all but invisible in the bread so don't worry about offending those who turn up their noses at the mention of it. I find it to be a sneaky way to get added calcium into their diets.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Measure and add ingredients to YOUR bread maker according to YOUR instructions. (Mine takes all liquids first, then dry ingredients, with the yeast last.).
  2. Select the “Sweet Bread” setting.
  3. Select “Crust Color” medium.
  4. Press Start, walk away, come back 2 hours and 50 minutes later to behold your creation!
  5. Notes:
  6. Cottage cheese - I drain all the whey that will readily pour off but don't actually strain it to remove all the liquid. I suppose the drained liquid could replace all or part of the water but I haven't tried it.
  7. Dough Consistency - As with all bread recipes, more flour or water may be needed depending on the humidity. Watch during the first knead & if the bread looks too dry, add water, 1 teaspoon at a time, until the dough gathers up. Likewise, if the dough looks to wet (my machine makes a louder noise when this is the case) sprinkle in flour.
