Cheese Bread Recipe

Ingredients : Makes one 23 x 13cm loaf

15 ml

250 ml

25 g

425 g

10 ml

90 g

Active dried yeast

Lukewarm milk


Strong white flour


Grated mature Cheddar cheese

Method :
  • Combine the yeast and milk. Stir and leave for 15 minutes to dissolve. Meanwhile, melt the butter, leave to cool, then add to the yeast mixture.
  • Mix the flour and salt together in a larger bowl. Make a central well and pour in the yeast mixture. With a wooden spoon, stir from the centre to obtain a rough dough. If the dough seems too dry, add 30-45ml water.
  • Transfer to a floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic. Return to the bowl, cover and leave to rise in a warm place until doubled in volume, about 2-3 hours.
  • Grease a 23 x 13cm loaf tin. Punch down the dough and knead in the cheese to distribute it evenly. Twist the dough, form into a loaf shape and place in the tin, tucking the ends under.
  • Leave in a warm place until the dough rises above the rim of the tin.
  • Preheat the oven to 200oC/400oF/Gas 6. Bake for 15 minutes, then lower the heat to 190oC/375oF/Gas 5 and bake until the base sounds hollow when tapped, about a further 30 minutes.
