This super rich bread bakes up high and is full of flavor. It's a family recipe. It's even better toasted with lots of butter.

Instructions Checklist
  • Soften yeast in warm water; let stand 10 minutes.

  • Mix cottage cheese, sugar, butter, 1 teaspoon salt, and baking soda together in a large mixing bowl. Add dill seed, dried onion, egg, and yeast mixture. Mix well. Gradually add flour, about 1/4 cup at a time, stirring well after each addition. If dough seems too sticky, add another tablespoon or 2 of flour.

  • Cover bowl with a clean cotton kitchen towel and place in a warm place until double in size, about 1 hour.

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Generously butter a 1 1/2- to 2-quart baking dish.

  • Gently stir dough to release bubbles. Transfer to prepared baking dish. Bake in preheated oven until golden brown, about 35 minutes. Remove from oven; brush top with butter and sprinkle on a pinch of salt. Let bread cool 5 minutes before transferring from the baking dish to a cooling rack.

Cook's Note:

Instead of stirring the dough with a spoon, I grease my hands and manually work the flour into the dough (Step 2).
