  • 1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
  • 1/4 cup warm water (110° to 115°)
  • 1 cup 4% cottage cheese, warmed (110° to 115°)
  • 1 large egg, room temperature
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon butter, softened
  • 2 teaspoons grated onion
  • 2 teaspoons caraway seeds
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2-1/3 cups all-purpose flour


  1. In a small bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. In a large bowl, combine cottage cheese, egg, sugar, butter, onion, caraway seeds, salt, baking soda, yeast mixture and 1-1/3 cups flour; beat on low speed 30 seconds. Beat on high 4 minutes. Stir in remaining flour. Do not knead. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 45 minutes.
