You will be making this delicious bread several times in a row, trust me on my word. This means, you should expect a general excitment by those you make it for and that is exactly what we stream to: a mid level effort for a great result.
Preparation time: 150 minutes
100 ml warm milk
1 bag of yeast
1 table spoon of salt
1 tea spoon of sugar
320 g flour
100 g butter
1 clove of garlic
1 table spoon of lemon juice
300 g Cheddar cheese
1 egg yolk
Preparing the dough. Combine milk, yeast and sugar and leave 10 minutes.
In a bowl combine eggs and salt. Add flour and yeast mix. Add chunks of butter to the dough. Grease the dough with oil and leave 60 minutes on warm.
Place the parchment paper in the bread mold. In a bowl, mix lemon juice and garlic.
Stray the dough in a form of a rectangle, the longer side is in front of us. Using the brush, put the garlic and lemon juice mix over the dough. Put the cheese over the surface of the dough. Roll the dough from you towards the other side. Cut the roll by lenghts leaving the right end connected. Combine the two pieces forming a braid. (Don’t worry about the cheese that gets out, you can add it on the surface of the bread.
Transfer the dough to the mold, cover with a cloth and leave for 60 minutes to set.
Heat the oven to 190°C. Mix the egg yolk with 1 table spoon of water. Spray it over the dough. Bake the bread for around 30 minutes. Take it out of the oven and leave in the mold for 15 minutes and then take it out of the mold.
If you can wait for it too cool down, you have some character.
