A wonderful one bowl batter bread packed with flavor!
Dissolve yeast in warm water, set aside. In microwave safe bowl that you have sprayed with non-stick coating, heat cottage cheese for 30-60 seconds until it's about bath-water warm but not hot. About 110 degrees is perfect for the yeast to work its magic. In the same bowl add all the other ingredients except flour and stir until well blended. Add flour gradually and stir until it makes a medium firm dough.
Let rise in the same bowl until doubled in size, about one hour. Lightly cover the bowl with a dishtowel while it's resting.
Punch down dough and put in loaf or round pan and let it rise again until doubled. The second rising should not take as long.
Bake at 350 degrees for 40-50 minutes and crust is a beautiful golden brown. Brush the top with melted butter if you'd like.
