Ingredients

  • 500 grams bread flour

  • 20 grams instant yeast

  • 1 tablespoon salt

  • 1 teaspoon sugar

  • 400 ml warm water

  • 75 grams butter, melted and cooled slightly

  • 1 teaspoon dried herbs

  • 1 cup biltong

  • 1 cup grated cheddar cheese

Method

  • Place the yeast, salt and sugar together in a small mixing bowl and add 300ml of the warm water.
  • Make a well in the centre of your flour and pour in the yeast mixture.
  • Add the butter and herbs and continue to work it in well. Your dough should be wet and sticky. If not add a touch more of the warm water.
  • Knead the dough for approximately 10 minutes until the dough starts coming together and appear silky and smooth.
  • Place the dough onto a floured surface and roll it into a ball. Grease a mixing bowl, add your dough, cover with clingfilm. Leave to rise until your dough has doubled in size.
  • Stretch the dough out into a flat, rectangle shape.
  • Sprinkle the biltong and cheese onto the flattened dough.
  • Grease a bread loaf tin and add the dough to the pan.
  • Rub some oil over the top and leave to rise for another 30 minutes. In the meantime, preheat the oven to 180°C.
  • Once the dough has risen, bake in the oven for 40 minutes or until golden in colour.
