READY IN: 55mins
YIELD: 1 loaf




  • Combine the yeast, sugar and 1/2 cup of warm water in a small jug or bowl.
  • Leave in a warm place until frothy (about ten minutes).
  • Put the flour, salt, milk powder and oil in a large bowl or bench mixer.
  • Stir to combine and then add the yeast mixture and 1 cup of warm water.
  • Mix to a soft dough and then knead for about ten minutes or until the dough is smooth and elastic.
  • Put the dough in an oiled bowl and cover loosely with oiled plastic wrap.
  • Leave the dough in a warm place for an hour or until doubled in size.
  • Punch the dough down and knead for 1 minute.
  • Divide in half and out of each half make 10 six cm (2 1/2 inch) flat discs.
  • Mix the herbs with the cheese and place approximately 3 teaspoons of the mixture onto ten of the discs.
  • Press the remaining 10 discs on top of the cheesey ones.
  • Grease a loaf tin (21 x 10. 5 x 6. 5 cm) and stand the discs upright in the prepared tin.
  • You will have to squeeze them together to fit them all inches.
  • Cover with a clean cloth and leave in a warm place for 40 minutes or until doubled in size.
  • Preheat the oven to 200°C - 400°F.
  • Glaze the loaf with a little milk and bake for 30-40 minutes or until brown and crusty and cooked through.
