Making Pepper Jack Cheese Bread
This makes a two-pound loaf of bread. Use the basic setting with medium crust.
Follow the instructions that came with your bread machine in terms of which ingredients to put in the machine first.
I recommend that you check on the dough after five or ten minutes of kneading. Pop the top of the bread machine and see how the dough is doing. It should be a smooth, round ball.
If it’s too dry, add milk a teaspoon at a time until it looks right. If it looks too wet, add flour a tablespoon at a time until it looks right.
