Lockdown Baking: Cheesy Bread.

Have you ever tried a recipe and look at the end result wondering what you were thinking even attempting it? That’s me when it comes to making bread and cakes. I can cook a mean curry, fry up or stew eyes closed, but baking is so precise, I do not know why I bother sometimes, hahahahaha.

This was my attempt at a cheese loaf. It was delicious OMG, so yummy but see how it looks? LOL

I got the recipe from Seasons and Suppers, head there and laugh with me at what my loaf was supposed to look like, it’s alright, I will not feel bad. And I now know where I went wrong.

Some changes I made, I added spring onion in place of mixed herbs and used goat cheese instead of the cheddar her recipe called for. However, this is not where I went wrong, lets proceed.

So, step one, I used my usual bread recipe which I’ve already shared here, as it was not that much different from the recipe on Seasons and suppers.

So where did I go wrong? I followed all the steps and the dough rose beautifully.

I spread my cheese and onion mix and now had to roll into a jelly roll style. Yoh! Not easy for me as by this time I was wondering what I was doing.
Hubs helped me out here, now I had to braid the loaf. It was much stickier than expected and I had to work fast to braid before the Goat Cheese started seeping out.
Mistake one, smart me has a big loaf pan so I decided to use it instead of two smaller loaves as the original recipe called for. Yeah, see why baking is not for me. Two, as you can see, I couldn’t even braid the loaf well. LOL. It is ok, let us laugh together!
But its not is bad right? And the kitchen smelt so good, my family just kept on asking how long it would take to cool before digging in. Ooh and it sunk a bit in the middle.

Will I try this again? Of course yes! The taste and aroma of this loaf is out of this world!

I brushed with some melted butter after getting it straight out of the oven.
I added some gouda cheese on top of the loaf before baking. Beautiful crust right there.

Please head to Seasons and Suppers and try out this recipe. It is worth the effort!
