  • 1 envelope (2-1/4 teaspoon) dry yeast
  • 1/4 cup warm water
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 cups cottage cheese
  • 2 tablespoons butter (melted)
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 1/4 cup dill seed
  • 2 teaspoons dehydrated minced onion
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 eggs (beaten)
  • 4 cups whole wheat flour


  1. In large mixing bowl, dissolve yeast envelope in water; add sugar and let stand for 5 minutes.
  2. Add cottage cheese, butter, honey, dill, onion, salt, baking soda and eggs; mix well. Add 3 cups of flour; stir until combined.
  3. Stir in remaining cup of flour to make a soft dough. Knead on lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic, about 12 to 15 minutes.
  4. Place dough in a greased bowl and cover with a clean towel or greased plastic wrap. Place over a bowl of hot water in an unheated (cool) oven. Let rise 2 hours or until doubled in size.
  5. Remove from oven, punch down dough and divide in half. Shape each half into a loaf and place in greased 9 x 5-inch loaf pans. Cover.
  6. Return dough to unheated (cool) oven with a fresh bowl of hot water underneath on a separate rack and let rise one hour or until doubled in size.
  7. Remove dough again from oven and preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from pans; cool on a wire rack for 5-10 minutes.
