Are you ready to make homemade bread in under half an hour and without any kneading/rising involved or a bread machine in sight? If so, you’re in for a treat because I’m sharing my recipe for this super easy and tasty savoury quick bread. I love making homemade bread but it always takes so long and I tend to get quite impatient waiting for the dough to rise. This is why I thought I would share this amazing recipe I recently found which doesn’t require any kneading, rising or proving. Simply add all the ingredients into a bowl, mix, bake and then dig in whilst the bread is still gloriously warm and toasted!
My taste testers loved the mix of flavours in this bread. This tasty bread combines oozy mature Cheddar cheese in each bite with a mellow hint of flavour from fresh chives. I can’t wait to make this bread again and I will definitely be making and packing it up for picnics in the summer but I am sure it would be fantastic toasted and served with a bowl of soup in the winter months.
225g self-raising flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon dijon or English mustard or dry mustard powder
2 tablespoons chopped chives
1 large free-range egg
150ml milk (I used semi-skimmed)
30g (2 tablespoons) butter, melted
100g mature Cheddar cheese, grated
1. Preheat your oven to 180 degrees Fan/200°C/400°C/Gas Mark 6. Line and grease a 23cm/9-inch square tin with parchment paper and set aside.
2. Sift the flour into a large mixing bowl. Add all the remaining ingredients and mix. Pour the bread mix into the prepared tin. Spread out evenly into the tin. Then sprinkle with about 2-3 tablespoons extra grated Cheddar cheese if you desire. Bake for 30 minutes or until crispy and risen.
3. Cool completely and then slice the bread up into triangles. Eat cold or toasted with butter.
