  1. Soften yeast in warm water; let stand 10 minutes.
  2. 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.
  3. Cover bowl with a clean cotton kitchen towel and place in a warm place until double in size, about 1 hour.
  4. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Generously butter a 1 1/2- to 2-quart baking dish.
  5. 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).

I didn't make any changes and it was delicious and very attractive. Thanks for the recipe!

Didn't rise quite as much as I expected but good flavor and texture. I'll make it again.

It’s amazing that my 92 year old mother has been making this exact bread since I was a little girl (about 50+ years)! I have made it several times in the past. I love it! Angie must be arou...

I followed the recipe as written, one of the easiest and tasty yeast breads I have made. My loaf was high and rounded, even prettier than the picture in the magazine.

Followed recipe exactly, except I used fresh dill. This was the 1st time I ever baked bread from scratch and it came out great! Thanks for the recipe.

Excellent flavor and texture! After baking I brushed it with butter, and sprinkled it with a little Mrs. Dash, instead of adding more salt to the recipe. This recipe has now been added to my ...

I made the dough according to the recipe, but doubled it. It worked with straight doubling. The texture was perfect. (The first time I made it was a single batch in a casserole dish). For 2018 C...

Absolutely delicious , I omitted the onion and the family loved it!
