What an interesting recipe. It's like a soft bread with a spoonbread topping--nice and puffy. I made in the food processor, and didn't have to adjust the proportions at all. I did not add salt--Dom knew what he was doing. I do recommend two things--greasing the pan, and using a good, sharp cheddar. Nice addition to our meal; thanks for posting!

This was really good and different. It needs to be eaten warm. The flavor was not as good when it was served at room temperature. As another chef suggested, I added about 1 t. of salt to the flour and baking soda mixture and about an additional teaspoon of milk to get the dough the correct consistency to pat in the pan. I made it to accompany chili but I think that for chili, cornbread is a better match. I would still consider making this bread again but I would not serve it with chili.

Like the last review I though that it would turn out like a cheese scone, but it was just like cheese bread with a twist very nice too. I did like the fact that you smother the dough with the mixture and it went all cheesy on top yum! my kind of food when this was baking the smell in my kitchen was amazing. I did add some salt to the dough and my mix needed more milk than 2/3 but it was very good . We had leftovers toasted under the grill and more cheese and tomato we like cheese not that you would have guess. Made for fall PAC 09
