Chilli cheese and onion bread


1 1/4 teaspoons yeast
250g Canadian Strong White Flour
250g Wholemeal Flour (Biodynamic used)
1 1/2 teaspoons sugar
25g butter
1 1/4 teaspoons salt
300ml water

Added ingredients
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.
