Van de Kamp's Cheese Bread

From: Jennie

Subject: Van de kamps cheese bread

Hello...I too have been searching for the receipe for the cheese bread that Van de Kamp used to have and 
some years ago I was able to talk with a man who did work at the bakery and told him what I was searching 
for and his suggestion was that he thought they used a "cheese tang" for the cheese bread.  I personally 
am not a baker so have not been able to find anyone who finds it as important to them that it is to me to 
try using (and getting) cheese tang to try and make the bread.

Have you every heard of this and/or tried it?

Dying to get some cheese bread that reminds me of many moons ago of using it to make tomato and Mayo cheese 
bread sandwiches which my mother would make for me on my way to junior college many many moons ago.

Hi Jennie,

I am familiar with ďcheese tang.Ē I discovered it when researching a recipe for Schrafftís cheese bread a couple of months ago. Iím afraid that what I discovered is that it is no longer being made. However, there might be some substitutes.

See my post about Schrafftís cheese bread here: 9-25-2017

Cheese Powder

????  Maybe if you could use this it would work for a receipe for cheese bread????


Hi Jennie,

I have no experience with any of these products or with making cheese bread at all, so I could not say. If I myself were trying to make a cheese bread like Van de Kampís, Iíd start with a known cheese bread recipe like these from King Arthur Flour using Vermont Cheese Powder, and then Iíd experiment, using more cheese powder or different brands of cheese powder until I either got something I liked or gave up. It might take multiple attempts.

Savory Cheddar Cheese Bread

Triple Cheese Breade

This company has some information about cheese bread and also sells a ďcheese flavor enhancerĒ product: Prepared Pantry

Cheese Booster

It might be helpful to look at the old and adapted versions of the Schrafftís recipe as well: Four Pounds Flour

Iím sorry if this isnít much help to you, Jennie, but itís the best that I can offer.

Iím searching for a recipe for unbaked fruitcake that was in a womenís magazine in 
the late 60ís or 70ís.  It didnít have marshmallows, it did have walnuts and candied 
fruit. Iíve Googled a lot but canít find it.

Thank you,


Hi Debbie,

I wish that I could help you, but you just don't have enough details about this recipe. Knowing that it came from a magazine isn't any help without knowing the name of the magazine and in which issue it was published. "Unbaked fruitcake" is rather vague. If the recipe had a unique name then that would help. Knowing that the ingredients included walnuts and candied fruit and no marshmallows is a little help, but not enough. If you know any more details about the recipe, send them to me.

The fruit cake recipes that I already have are here: Fruitcake Links

I'll post this for reader input.
