I am a cheese addict, I probably eat it every day in one form or another. One of my favourite ways to enjoy cheese is in a sandwich with pickle; the creamy cheese against the sour pickle creates an explosion of flavour that I just can’t resist! A friend of mine gifted me some homemade onion chutney at Christmas and I’ve had the idea to combine it with cheese in a bread for ages, and I finally found the time to make this Onion Chutney & Cheese Swirl Bread. Of course you can use shop bought chutney if you prefer!
Step by step…
To make the dough I stirred together the flour, yeast and salt. Then I added the water and oil and brought it together into a dough, then I kneaded it for 5 minutes in my stand mixer with the dough hook attachment. I left it to rise for 1 hour in a warm place.
I rolled the dough out onto a floured surface into a rectangle shape. Then I spread the whole jar of onion chutney out all over the dough.
Then I sprinkled over the cheese – I used mature cheddar.
I rolled the doll up into a sausage shape, then sliced it into rolls and arranged them in a lined traybake tin. I left them to rise again in a warm place for 30 minutes.
Then I brushed them with olive oil and sprinkled over the remaining cheese. I baked them for 25 minutes until golden all over. As the chutney has sugar in it, it did darken quite a lot, but it didn’t affect the taste at all.
This Onion Chutney & Cheese Swirl Bread was so delicious! The tangyness of the onion chutney comes out strongly and every bite is packed with flavour. The bread baked beautifully and was really soft and springy.
We really enjoyed eating this Onion Chutney & Cheese Swirl Bread with soup, and also as a cheeky snack!
