Let’s Review the September Baking Challenge

September 2019 Sally’s Baking Challenge Recipe: Homemade Cheese Bread

You did it! You made bread! For many readers, this was the first time ever baking homemade bread. And I hope you’re incredibly proud of yourself. This cheese bread is one of the best breads I’ve ever had, homemade or not, so if you haven’t tried it yet– do it now!

One of my favorite recipe reviews came from reader Kara:

“I’m not going to lie, this month’s baking challenge was an intimidating one for me! I’ve never made my own bread, but OMG was this cheese bread good! Thank you Sally for continuing to give us these fun challenges each month, they are helping me to become a more and more confident home baker!”

We gathered as many cheese bread photo entries as we could and included them below. (Email is the best way to help guarantee your photo will be included!)

    Will there be an alternative to the caramel apple for the October challenge? Perhaps something baked?

    1. There is always an alternate challenge recipe, including any previous challenge recipe (there are 32 to choose from!). The details are listed above the caramel apples recipe.
