1 packet dry yeast
1/4 cup warm water
1 cup cottage cheese, creamed
2 tablespoons white sugar
1 tablespoon grated fresh onion
1 tablespoon butter, softened
2 teaspoons dill seed
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 1/4 cups white flour
In a small bowl, combine the yeast and warm water.
In a large bowl, combine the cottage cheese, sugar, onion, butter, dill seed, salt, baking soda, egg, and flour.
Allow the flour mixture to come to room temperature; the original recipe suggests placing it on top of the stove.
Add the yeast mixture to the flour mixture, and mix until thoroughly combined.
The result should be a stiff dough.
Cover the dough, and place it in a warm location.
Allow the dough to rise until double (about 1 hour).
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Stir down the dough, and place it in a well-buttered 2-quart casserole dish.
Return the dough to the warm location, and allow it to rise again for 30-40 minutes.
Bake for 40-50 minutes, or until the crust is a dark brown color.
After removing the bread from the oven, brush the crust with melted butter and sprinkle with salt.
An old-fashioned recipe for Dilly Bread. May be made as one loaf, or as muffins if desired (adjust baking time accordingly).
