cheese loaf

A modified version of the Panasonic Cheese and Bacon recipe (page 27) because I didn’t have any bacon in the house.

200g Hovis Strong White flour
200g Carrs Wholemeal flour
1 tbsp Sugar
1 tbsp Milk powder
1 tsp Salt
3/4 tsp Allinsons Easy Bake yeast
50g Tesco Mature Cheddar (grated)
25g Assorted nuts (Sesame, Pumpkin and Sunflower)
285 ml Warm water

Baked on a Wholewheat Rasin setting (5hr), with the dry ingredients apart from the nuts mixed outside the machine, then the mix, cheese, and water added to the baking tin and then the nuts were placed into the nut tray.

Nicci liked this one, but I felt that there wasn’t enough cheese, and I’m not 100% sure about the nuts – the Sesame seeds did add some extra flavour to the loaf, and it’s pleasant enough to eat, but the Granary has a nicer overall flavour. I intend to revisit this in the future when I can get a really good, really cheesey loaf baked.

  1. I’m impressed with the speed at which you can bake these things. Either you have a portable time machine (and it’s unfair you’re keeping it to yourself) or you’ve got more than one bread machine. In the 17 minutes between the first recipe today and the last, I counted 20-odd hours of baking.

    So, ‘fess up – how’d you do it?

  2. Umm, I’m not sure that I ought to enlighten you – I prefer the time machine option 🙂 Because I wasn’t sure what I was doing to start with I’ve been keeping a sort of bread diary, noting down which ones I tried, what I changed, and what the result was like. I know from experience that anything I write on paper usually has a lifetime of just under two weeks, after which it either vanishes forever, or for just under two years when I get around to clearing out a totally unrelated drawer/box/desk etc.

    So I thought I’d put them online and then I can use Google as my offsite backup, and maybe give a non-Panasonic owning bread maker something new to try !
