Cheese and Onion Loaf

Ingredients

  • 45g Butter
  • 1 Onion Finely chopped
  • 150ml Milk
  • 150ml Water
  • 450g White Bread Flour (sifted)
  • 1 1/2 tsp Easy rise yeast
  • 1 tsp Mustard Seeds / powder
  • 175g Cheddar Cheese (grated)
  • 1 tsp Sugar
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Pepper

Notes

Dividing into balls, and covering with melted butter causes the bread to fall apart into bite sized pieces. So if you want to slice it in a traditional way, don't divide into balls.

Method

  1. Melt 25g of butter in a frying pan, and fry the onions until soft and light golden.
  2. Add the water, milk, then the flour, 120g cheese, yeast, mustard, sugar, salt and pepper.
  3. Use the Dough setting.
  4. When the machine has finished, knock down the bread onto a floured surface and kneed gently.
  5. Melt the remaining 20g butter
  6. Divide the dough into 20 pieces and shape into balls.
  7. In an oiled bread tin, add half of the balls in the bottom layer, and brush with melted butter.
  8. Add the remaining dough balls as a 2nd layer, and brush with the remaining butter.
  9. Cover, and leave in a warm place to rise for 45 minutes.
  10. Pre-heat the oven to 190°C / Gas mark 5
  11. Sprinkle the remaining 55g cheese on top, and bake for 45 minutes until golden brown.
