Cottage Cheese Bread Recipe

Yields1 Serving

Cottage Cheese bread has a delicate yellow texture and a slight tanginess from the cottage cheese.  It’s a great bread with soups or salads and will stand up to the robust flavor of meat dishes.  It’s a yeast bread but it calls for the addition of a ¼ teaspoon of baking soda to give it an added rise.

 1 tablespoon of white sugar
 1 teaspoon of salt
 ¼ teaspoon of baking soda
 ½ cup of water at 110 degrees F./43 degrees C.
 2 ½ teaspoons of bread machine yeast or active dry yeast
 2 tablespoons of butter at room temperature
 1 cup of cottage cheese at room temperature
 1 egg at room temperature
 3 cups of bread flour
 1 egg yolk whisked with 1 tablespoon of water for glazing (optional)

Place all of the ingredients in the bread machine in the order indicated in the ingredients list.


Select the basic white bread setting for a 1.5-pound loaf and a dark crust.


When done, remove the loaf from the bread pan and let rest for 10 minutes.


Slice and serve.
