A chilli/cheese/onion flavoured wholemeal bread, with a rich cheesy crust. Light in texture, and if a stronger flavour is preferred, hotter chilli’s can be substituted! It is a modified 50:50 wholemeal loaf recipe which uses a (Panasonic SD-2500) bread machine for much of the work.
1 1/4 teaspoons yeast
250g Canadian Strong White Flour
250g Wholemeal Flour (Biodynamic used)
1 1/2 teaspoons sugar
1 1/4 teaspoons salt
100g grated English Cheddar (mature/extra mature). 75g for dough, 25g for sprinkling over the top of the loaf
6 spring onion bulbs
2 chilli’s (Cayenne peppers used, adjust for particular preference)
Small amount of oil, or butter for lightly frying the onions and chilli’s
First, grate the cheese. Next, finely chop the spring onions and the chilli’s after removing the stem and seeds. Heat the oil/butter and lightly fry the onions and chilli’s until softened, and then remove from the heat and allow to cool. Remove any excess oil/butter.
Next, make the dough. Put the dough ingredients in the bread pan, yeast first and then the flour, 75g of grated cheese, sugar, butter, and salt. Place the bread pan in the machine and then add the water. Select Menu 17/18 (SD-2500/2501) and then start.
When the dough is ready, remove it from the pan onto a lightly floured surface. Shape it and put in a large bread tin. Sprinkle with the remaining cheese for a cheese-flavoured crust. Allow to rise before placing in a preheated oven (Gas 6, 200 deg C) and bake for approximately 35 minutes.
