All you need is a bowl and an oven!
- 250 grams plain flour (all purpose flour). (8oz/2 cups)
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 60 grams butter or margarine (2oz)
- 85 grams cheese, grated. (3oz/1 cup).
- 1-2 tablespoons of oregano (optional, or use any mixed herbs)
- ½ small onion, grated
- ¾ cup milk
- 1 medium egg
- Pre-heat your oven to 175°C/350°F/Gas Mark 4.
- Grease or line a 1lb loaf tin, or a baking tray if you’ve no tin
- Combine the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt in a bowl.
- Cut up the butter and add it to the dry ingredients, then cut this into the dry ingredients until the mix resembles breadcrumbs
- Add the cheese, onion and herbs to the mix and mix it up.
- Whisk the egg and milk together until blended and pour this into the cheese bread mix. Mix everything together well.
- Pour the mix into your loaf tin, or if you’re using a baking tray then flour your hands and shape it into a round and place on the baking tray.
- You can top your cheese bread with other ingredients or garnishes if you want, e.g. I top mine with fresh cut chillies, or with slides of tomato.
- Bake for 40-45 minutes in the middle of your oven.
To test if the cheese bread is cooked, insert a knife into the middle and it should come out clean.
Take the loaf out of the oven and allow to cool for 10-15 minutes before removing it from the loaf tin. Cool on a wire rack so any heat/steam can escape, to prevent it becoming soggy.
If you store this no yeast cheese bread in an airtight tin it should be fine for a couple of days.
Freeze Cheese Bread:
You can freeze this once cold if you want, either whole or sliced.
This bread is perfect for picnics, lunchboxes or as an accompaniment to soups or chilli con carne.
