Cheddar and Garlic Bread

This comes from an Amish cookbook. I made this in 98 for the first time. We could get cheddar cheese powder in bulk at a local Amish store in Bonduel, WI. Last time we were there, we bought a 5 qt ice cream container full of cheese powder to bring home to TX!

Cheddar and Garlic Bread
Family Treasures Cookbook Vol II(Amish)
Mrs. Perry(Lena) Lehman

4 c warm water
1/3 c sugar
2 Tbsp yeast

Combine and let sit for 10 minutes.

In a large bowl, combine the following:

½ c sugar
¾ c oil
2 tsp salt

Combine the two mixtures and add the following according to directions below.

10 c all purpose white flour (divided)
2 tsp garlic powder
1 c cheddar cheese powder

Add 5 c of flour, garlic powder and cheddar cheese powder; blend well. Add the other 5 c flour one at a time and blend well. If dough seems too sticky add 1 more cup flour. Cover dough with lid and let rise 10 minutes. Repeat 3 times every 10 minutes. Let rise until lid bulges. Knead for 5-10 minutes. Form into 4 loaves. Let rise for 1 hour. Bake at 200 for 10 minutes then at 325 for 20 -30 minutes.

***I thought the rising for 10 minutes was not right. I did let it rise the first time and punched it down, and then let it rise for 1 hour.
