  1. Sprinkle the yeast into warm water in a large mixing bowl.
  2. Let stand until puffy.
  3. Add sugar, salt, and one cup of flour; beat well.
  4. Add three eggs, one at a time. Beat until smooth.
  5. Beat in the butter and gradually add enough remaining flour to make a soft dough.
  6. Turn out on a floured board. Knead until smooth and satiny.
  7. Place in a greased bowl.
  8. Butter the top of dough lightly. Cover with a towel. Let rise in a warm place until doubled in size.
  9. Mix in the cheese if used and turn out on a floured board. Knead lightly.
  10. Divide into three pieces and shape into long ropes; braid the strands and tuck ends under.
  11. Place on a greased baking sheet and cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled in size.
  12. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  13. Bake in the oven for 30 to 35 minutes or until golden brown, and the loaf sounds hollow when thumped.
