Herb & Cheese Bread {mix & bake}

A year or two before my Dad passed away, I bought him a Bread Making Machine, which he loved to use. He actually picked different recipes and baked them ! I thought he'll just use it for normal whitebread.

He'll be gone 4 years this month, and I still haven't used it, as I now have it. Maybe I still miss him too much to use the machine or maybe I just don't have the guts to bake an actual yeast bread (even with the machine). 

I like baking bread, sweet and savory, but it must be like this recipe - mix & bake. 

This is from one of my favorite cookbooks, the pages are actually coming apart from all the use!

Serve this bread on it's own, warm with just butter, or as we normally do - with soup. It's also a nice variation on the standard types of bread used for sandwiches.

Herb & Cheese Bread {mix & bake}

recipe slightly adapted from this cookbook by Christelle Erasmus: Gesinskos available in English as Family Fare

500g Self-raising Flour
5ml Oregon
100ml Dried Parsley
5ml Salt
5ml Dried Garlic Flakes
Pinch Cayenne Pepper
500ml Buttermilk
1 Extra-Large Egg
Grated Cheddar Cheese and Paprika to sprinkle on top

1.) Pre-heat oven to 180 deg C (350 deg F) - Spray a loaf pan with Spray 'N Cook and line the bottom with baking paper.
2.) Combine the Flour, Oregon, Parsley, Garlic Flakes, Salt and Cayenne Pepper in a large bowl.
3.) Beat the Buttermilk and Egg together and add to the dry ingredients. - Mix until a dough has formed (it is quite sticky)
4.) Pour dough into the loaf pan, making it even on top. Sprinkle with the Cheddar Cheese (we like a lot, as you'll notice on the last photo - I used about 250ml) and some Paprika.
5.) Bake for 1 hour, remove from oven, cool in pan for 5 minutes, remove from pan and let cool at least 10 minutes before serving.

Very herby indeed!

Promise no more posts for today - I just get really behind some days {might be age related ... }

  7. Its crazy how certain things are just kinda sacred when we lose a loved one. I love savory bread, I noticed you put cayenne pepper in it, now you are after my heart.
