Home made Two Cheese Bread - Yummy!!!

I ate this two cheese bread while in Cyprus and fell in love with it. Two things, one because it is savory and second because it was so rustic and yummy, made from whole wheat. Is there anything not to love?...The recipe is fairly simple and needs a little time and patience (like any other bread!)..

All you need...

Whole Wheat flour - 3 1/2 cups
Active Dry yeast - 1 1/4 tbsp
Salt - 1/4 tsp
Feta cheese - 1 cup
Cheddar cheese - 1 cup
Olive oil - 1 tbsp
Honey - 1 tbsp
Oregano or basil (dry) - 1 tsp
Milk- 1/2 cup
Water (luke warm) - 2 cups (as needed )

  • Microwave a cup of water + milk for a minute (until lukewarm)
  • Make sure its luke warm and add honey and mix well
  • Add dry yeast and set aside for ten minutes - to activate the yeast (froth appears) (takes ten minutes or less)
  • In the meanwhile, add salt, cheeses, oil and oregano to the flour and mix well
  • Add the active yeast to the flour and knead the dough. Use the luke warm water if requried.
  • Leave the dough to rise and cover the container with a moist cloth (for thirty minutes or so)
  • After the first rise, take the dough onto a flat surface and punch it with your index finger
  • Put the moist cloth back and leave it in a warm, dry place for the second rise (take around 40 minutes)
  • Line the container ( you wish to bake your bread in ) with a little flour
  • Transfer the dough to the container and leave it covered with the cloth for another 10 minutes
  • Brush a mixture of milk and water onto the set dough for a beautiful crust
  • Preheat your oven at 375 F and bake the bread for 20-25 minutes. (keep checking cos each oven is different)
  • Pat lightly to check if its done.( A hollow sound means the bread is all set and done)
  • Let it cool for a few minutes before you slice
Ah! life cant get any better!!

Look at the lovely crust, and do u see the yummy cheese in every slice...Bake it and let me know how it turned out..:)

Serving Suggestion
You have a wonderful Savory bread to devor with a bowl of hot soup and roasted potatoes or plantain

  • Cheddar alone could be used for this bread
  • You could rub in a piece of garlic and sprinkle some mozzarella and drizzle some olive oil on top and leave it in the microwave for a minute or two for a yummy batch of home made garlic bread
