I've had Stella's spicy cheese bread many times but haven't made it to madison in almost a year. Looks like I have a project coming up!

I love bread and this sounds absolutely yummy! But what is bread flour? I live in Sweden, so I'm not so sure if we have that over here. :)

I think your best bet is to use half all purpose flour and half whole wheat flour.
