This stuff is yummy!

1 packet dried yeast (I think they're 7 grams each)
2 cups plain flour
3/4 cup warm water
1 tsp sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups grated tasty cheese (or less than this with a little parmesan on top)
6 tablespoons of chopped herbs. I use all flat leaf parsley but basil would work as well. Olives maybe too)
1 egg
Half a Spanish onion, sliced finely and soaked in lemon juice for an hour. Skip the soaking if you like a sharper onion flavour.
2 tbsp olive oil
Milk or egg wash

Put one cup of flour, the water, sugar and yeast into a bowl. Mix to a thick paste and leave (covered with cling film) for 30 mins. It will go fluffy.

Add the other cup of flour, cheese, salt, herbs, onion, egg and oil to the paste and stir. I do this step in a mixer with the dough hooks on. You could knead by hand. It takes about 10 minutes to knead, adding a little flour when it becomes sticky.

Put the dough in an oiled bowl and leave for 15 minutes covered in cling wrap. Dough should rise and double. Punch it down and knead lightly.

Shape the dough however you like. I braid it like a round challah, but you could do a loaf, pull-apart balls or plait it. Cover with wrap and leave for 10 minutes.

Brush with egg or milk wash (parmesan if you like) and bake for ~30 minutes at 190oC fan forced. A little longer if you don't have the fan. It should sound hollow when tapped.

Eat warm or cold - just keep away from hungry hands who tend to burn themselves on the hot loaf.  Cheesy

This is my challah baked at the same time. One of the three is a bit misshapen  Grin

And everything uncooked.

And the secret to shuny, golden bread is to brush with egg once you shape the dough. Let it soak in and then brush again just before baking. Shiny and tasty without a super thick crust.

Looks insanely tasty and sounds like it is too! I'll have to try, and hopefully I'll get enough time tomorrow if the kids are out for long enough. Wonderful, thanks!

Aren't those bridal shower invitations cute?
