Cheese Bread Candy Corn
I like to think outside of the box when I create my edible crafts and the inspiration for this particular project came from within a box.
Several times a year, I receive a big box filled with new Wilton merchandise. It’s a lovely perk of being a member of their Sweet Treat Team of brand ambassadors. When the box arrived this fall, I anxiously peeled off the tape, flipped open the top of the box, and began pulling things out, as excited as a kid on Christmas morning. The shipping carton was filled with new Halloween merchandise, and you know what a Halloween freak I am.
There were silicone molds, and sprinkles, Candy Melts, lollipops sticks, cupcake wrappers, and candy apple sticks. I even got packages of plastic beakers and test tubes which I’ll put to good use for a mad scientist party.
At the bottom of the box, I found a package of Bread Mix nestled inside a Candy Corn Cake Pan. As I lifted the two items out of the big box, it was as if the two were destined to be together.
I immediately visualized this candy corn shaped loaf of cheese bread topped with gooey melted yellow, orange, and white cheese.
When I finally found time to make this bread yesterday, it looked just like I had envisioned it and tasted even better.
The cheese topped bread became my dinner last night. I didn’t eat the whole thing, but sure was tempted. The bread is soft and tender on the inside and a bit crunchy on the outside. The flavor is equal to any quick bread I have ever made from scratch.
To make it even better, I loaded it with about 1/2 cup of freshly shredded yellow colored Gouda, 1 cup of orange Cheddar, and 1/2 cup white mozzarella cheese. Each section of the bread tastes just a bit different.
I can’t decide which cheese I like best, but I do know I will be making this again. And again. And again. And, I know you’ll want to make it too.
It is so easy to make. Just follow the directions on the box of bread mix, adding some butter and water or beer to the dry mix, then pour the batter into the candy corn cake pan, and bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for about 30 minutes.
As soon as it comes out of the oven, flip it over and sprinkle freshly shredded cheese over top. Place it back in the oven for a few minutes until the cheese melts. Then serve warm.
Gouda cheese is naturally a bit yellow, but it isn’t quite bright enough to look like the bottom section of a candy corn. To brighten up the cheese, put a drop or two of yellow food coloring in a zip top bag, add the shredded cheese, and shake. The cheese will become bright yellow within a few shakes.
This bread took me less than 10 minutes of prep time to create and that included shredding the blocks of cheese.
