Cheese and Curried Fruit Bread Recipe

Ingredients: Makes three 450 g/1 lb loaves

25 g/1 oz fresh yeast or 40 ml/2.5 tbsp dried yeast
600 ml/1 pt/2.5 cups water
450 g/1 lb/4 cups wholemeal (wholewheat) flour

Method:

Blend the yeast with a little of the warm water and leave in a warm place for about 15 minutes until frothy. Mix together the flours, milk powder and salt and make a well in the centre. Stir in the yeast mixture and the remaining warm water and mix to a dough. Knead well until smooth and elastic. Place in an oiled bowl and cover with clingfilm (plastic wrap). Leave in a warm place for 45 minutes until doubled in size.


Add the cheese, mixed fruit, curry powder and ginger to the dough and knead into the mixture. Shape into loaves and place on a greased baking (cookie) sheet. Cover and leave to rise for 15 minutes. Sprinkle with the oats and bake in a preheated oven at 230C/450F/gas mark 8 for 25 minutes until golden on top and hollow-sounding when tapped on the base.
