I nearly forgot it, the recipe for the really delicious loaf baked with three sorts of cheese. I’ll catch up on it today. It’s nice as a side dish with salad but a real indulgence too when savoured with some spicy herb butter.
200 g Limburger cheese
200 g sheep’s or feta cheese
500 g flour
1 bag of dry yeast
1 tsp caster sugar
appr. 1 tsp salt
1 tsp paprika powder moderately spicy
150 ml lukewarm water
200 g cream cheese
some milk for brushing the loaf
Preheat oven at 220°C, cover tray with baking sheet
Slice the Limburger and sheep’s or feta chees.
Mix flour with remaining ingredients and cheese slices in the bowl of your food processor and knead until you get a soft dough. Leave the mixture at a warm place to rise. Then knead the dough again on a lightly floured work surface and form a loaf of 30cm. Sprinkle the surface with some water and score diagonally with a sharp knife. Leave again for rising. Then put the baking tray in the oven (lower third) and reduce temperature to 180°C. To get a golden brown crust spread some milk on the top of of the loaf just 10 minutes before the end of baking time.
For a party I simply formed two loafs so that the slices were much smaller. Put the herb butter in silicone muffin cups. Thus you can easily place several cups on a large table.
