Cheese bread for a good cause

cheese bread
I think I can finally pat my back for baking a soft spongy bread. When I baked a bread the first time, I was thrilled. And then baked many after that. This one shows a significant improvement on my bread baking abilities. Everything went off well right from the beginning and I knew this was going to be atleast almost close to perfect.
