🍞🧀🌿 Irresistible Buttermilk Cheddar and Chive Bread Recipe!

Indulge in the warm, comforting aroma of freshly baked bread with our delectable Buttermilk Cheddar and Chive Bread recipe, a true testament to the art of artisanal baking. Crafted with care and infused with the sweetness of Wood's Vermont Maple Sugar, this savory bread is sure to captivate your taste buds and leave you craving for more. We use this bread for savory french toast and coupled with the chive and maple syrup, it turns your breakfast into a straight phenomenal meal. 

Begin by prepping a 9x5-inch loaf pan with a light coating of cooking spray, ensuring that your bread releases effortlessly once baked. In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine flour, Wood's Maple Sugar, instant yeast, and kosher salt, blending them together until they form a cohesive mixture.

With the mixer on low speed, add eggs, egg yolks, and warm buttermilk, allowing the ingredients to come together into a smooth dough. If the dough appears too dry, simply add more buttermilk gradually until you achieve the desired consistency. Increase the mixer speed and beat the dough for a few minutes until it becomes elastic and smooth.

Next, incorporate softened unsalted butter into the dough, adding it in three additions and ensuring each addition fully incorporates before adding the next. Once the dough is smooth and elastic, switch to the dough hook attachment and add a flavorful mixture of shredded cheddar cheese, chopped fresh chives, and green onion.

Turn out the dough onto a floured surface and divide it into three equal portions. Roll out each portion into a rectangle, brush one long side with egg wash, and sprinkle with the cheese and herb mixture. Roll up the dough tightly, jelly-roll style, and repeat the process with the remaining portions.

Braid the three ropes of dough together, tucking the ends under, and place the braid in the prepared loaf pan. Cover the dough and allow it to rise until doubled in size, or refrigerate it overnight for added convenience.

Once risen, brush the top of the dough with egg wash and bake until golden brown and fragrant. Serve the bread slightly warm, savoring each slice as you enjoy the rich flavors of cheddar cheese, fresh chives, and Wood's Maple Sugar.
