Twist and shout

Make this whilst singing loudly please otherwise I have wasted a cool title cool

Here's my first plaited loaf.biggrin

First, though, my usual warning:

Most of my recipes use 3 cups of flour and/or solids to 400mls fluid.

Check the ratios for your machine.

For some reason here in the mid-north of
South Australia (some of you none-Australians will have heard this referred to as ‘Heaven’ in various religious texts) the fluid amount is often a lot more than the book that comes with the machine.

Adjust it for wherever you are and don’t be scared to peep at the dough as it is being mixed.


3 cups white bread flour

400mls warm milk

2 tsp bread yeast

1 cup grated cheese

Bung it all into the bread maker in the order that your machine manufacturer recommends.

Set it to Dough cycle. Add the cheese 12 minutes into the cycle.

Take out the dough and roll into 2 sausages the same length (yeah, right).rolleyes

Pinch one end and plait them and allow to rise to double their original size.

Paint the dough with a beaten egg or some milk and sprinkle some poppy seeds over it.

Bake in an oven at 180C for 40 minutes or until it sounds hollow when you knock it on the head!!!

Delicious. biggrin

If you are feeling adventurous try a variety of knots. eek
