Sweet Grated Cheese Bread


Picked out this recipe from ‘Majalah Anis’. I have all other ingredients except cheese. I sprinkled it with sugar, so mine is just soft and sweet bread minus the cheese.

Grated Cheese Bread

500 g high-protein flour (I used plain flour)

1 tsp salt

100 g castor sugar

1 egg – beaten

30 g margarine – melted

200 ml milk

50 g castor sugar

8 g instant dry yeast (2 ¼ tsp)

1 tbsp warm water

Enough grated cheddar cheese


Mix together milk, 50 g castor sugar, dry yeast and warm water in a bowl. Leave aside.

Reserve ½ cup of flour. Sift remaining flour and salt into a mixing bowl. Add in 150 g castor sugar, beaten egg and melted margarine. Mix everything well, then add in liquid yeast mixture.  Add reserved flour, a tbsp at a time until a soft and smooth dough is formed. Add just enough flour and dough comes away from bowl and doesn’t stick to your finger. Knead for about 10 – 15 minutes. Cover and leave to proof for 40 mins to 1 hour.

Divide dough into 9 – 10 balls. Shape them into buns and arrange them into a greased square or round baking tray about ½ cm apart. I divided my dough into 9 equal length strips and braided them into pleats.

Brush with beaten egg and sprinkle with grated cheddar cheese. Leave to rise again for another 30 minutes. Bake in a preheated oven at 180 deg Celcius for 20 minutes.

(Tips: If your bread is still not done when the top is already browned, cover with aluminium foil and continue to bake. Check at 5 minutes interval until bread is done.)
