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.)
