Dill Bread

This golden-brown loaf from Corky Huffsmith of Salem, Oregon is moist and flavorful. Dill weed gives each wedge an herbed zest, making it a nice complement to most any meal. What's more, this easy yeast bread requires no kneading!

  • Makes
    12 servings


  • 1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
  • 1/4 cup warm water (110° to 115°)
  • 1 cup 2% cottage cheese
  • 1/4 cup snipped fresh dill or 4 teaspoons dill weed
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon dill seed
  • 1 large egg, room temperature, lightly beaten
  • 2-1/4 to 2-3/4 cups all-purpose flour


  • In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. In a small saucepan, heat cottage cheese to 110°-115°; add to yeast mixture. Add fresh dill, butter, salt, sugar, dill seed, egg and 1 cup flour; beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough. Do not knead. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  • Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; shape into a 6-in. circle. Transfer to a greased 9-in. round baking pan. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 45 minutes. Preheat oven to 350°.
  • Bake until golden brown and bread sounds hollow when tapped, 35-40 minutes. Remove from pan to a wire rack to cool. Cut into wedges.

    Do you knead Dill dough...?

    This was my first time ever making homemade bread and it was a great success! It was really easy to make, although I had to do some scrounging to find dill seed. (Note: Dill seed is not the same as dill weed). I followed the recipe exactly and it turned out perfectly ... a wonderful flavour, moist and chewy, yet very light! Cutting the bread into slices was a dream...the knife slid right through. The only thing I changed was substituting olive oil for the butter and it added to the flavour. YUM! Will make this again!

    I made this to go with a soup and it tasted wonderful together. It was a little salty so next time I'll use less. I think it would taste wonderful with dip, too.
