  • Combine 3 cups (750 mL) flour, yeast, sugar and salt in large mixer bowl. Mix well; toss in cheddar cheese.
  • Add milk, water and oil. Beat using an electric mixer on medium speed 3 minutes. Gradually stir in remaining flour using enough flour to make a soft dough.
  • Turn out onto lightly floured board. Knead dough adding more flour as necessary, until dough is smooth, elastic and no longer sticky (about 5 minutes). Place in greased bowl; turn dough over to grease top. Cover with plastic wrap. Let rise in warm place (75°-85°F/24°-29°C) for 30 minutes. Punch down, cover and let rest 10 minutes.
  • Cut dough into 40 pieces. Shape each into a ball. Dip balls in melted butter then roll in Parmesan cheese to coat. Grease a 10” (4 L) tube pan. Arrange balls in two layers in prepared pan. Cover with tea towel. Let rise in warm place until balls are almost to top of pan (1-1¼ hours).
  • Preheat oven to 375ºF (190ºC).
  • Bake on lower rack 35 to 45 minutes or until firm and golden. Cool 5 minutes then remove from pan. Enjoy warm or at room temperature.
