Cheese bread


This is delicious with soup, with a salad or just with lots of butter...........
I make it anytime I buy a cheese that turns out not to be so popular amongst the crew here, or anytime I seem to have an abundance of cheese!
Think of it as a cheese scone pretending to be a loaf of bread

111/2  ozs plain flour
1 tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
31/2 ozs cheese..... strong cheddar works well , I usually use whatever has been hanging about in th fridge for more than a little while
7 fl ozs milk
2 eggs
1 tbsp wholegrain mustard
2 flozs olive oil

Preheat oven to 180C (350F) 
lightly oil loaf tin
sift all the dry ingredients in to a bowl
add the grated cheeese and mix
Pour the milk eggs and mustard into a jug and whisk very lightly with a fork
add the liquid to the dry and mix well
You will get a fairly wet dough
scoop into tin
Bake for 50 mins 
remove from tin and bake for a further 10 mins
leave to cool

Great to bring on a picnic as we did last weekend ....... enjoy

Interestingly I was in the McQueen store last week
and was struck by how beautiful it was and how it reminded me of a museum
Each piece felt Museum worthy.... exquisite

Tonight is the Costume Institute Ball
My ticket must have gotten lost in the mail
