Total Time: 2 hours 55 minutes
- Heat the oven to 350 F.
- Combine sugar, salt, grated cheese, and scalded milk; stir until cheese is melted. If necessary, return to heat and heat just until cheese is melted. Cool cheese mixture to lukewarm.
- In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in lukewarm water; stir in lukewarm cheese and milk mixture. Add about half of the flour and beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to make a stiff dough.
- Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic, adding a little more flour as necessary to keep dough from sticking.
- Put the dough in a large buttered bowl; turn to butter both sides or brush more butter on top of dough. Cover with a clean dish cloth and let rise in a warm, draft-free place until doubled in bulk, about 1 hour.
- Turn dough out onto lightly floured surface; divide in two equal portions. Knead each portion lightly and shape into two loaves. Place in greased 9-by-5-by-3-inch loaf pans; cover with cloth and let rise again for about 1 hour, until doubled in bulk.
- Bake for 35 minutes.
- When done, loaf will sound hollow when lightly tapped.
