The first experience of cheese-orientated bread was chilli cheddar bread. Recipe can be found here. Sadly I wasn't organised enough to have wholemeal flour, so instead, I used 50g of Allinson's Seed and Grain flour. It seemed to work out okay.
After this (well, actually, after the MONSTER french bread loaf I'll be writing about at another time) I tried a recipe given to me by my future sister-in-law: -
It calls for the following -
400g white bread flour
1 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt
50 g grated parmesan cheese (I've been using slightly cheaper Grana Padano)
50g chopped sundried tomatoes - use the ones that have been soaked in oil. If dried, soak in water for fifteen minutes.
3/4 tsp yeast
This was undeniably the lightest bread we've had so far. The top is a little crinkly and airy and again, whilst the bread doesn't taste strongly of either tomato or cheese, it tasted nice. So nice I've made another one (along with another banana nut loaf) to take with me to a Halloween party today.
The third loaf was another of those packet loaves.
On this note - a quick gratuitous picture of little D attempting to eat a carrot (he sadly failed but it's the first thing he's properly held himself) Apologies for the weird angle, it's difficult to take photos and hold baby on your lap at the same time. There were about fifteen failed attempts that took excellent pictures of the wall before this...-
Oh and g'wan, one of little D as a pumpkin -
