I made this “pull apart bread” (a recipe adapted from Zola Nene) and just loved it. It is perfect for a picnic and to share with friends … whenever and where ever!
(Adapted recipe from Zola Nene)
250 ml grated cheddar cheese
125 ml grated mozzarella cheese
125 ml grated Parmesan cheese
180 ml mayonnaise
large handful mixed fresh herbs , chopped
500g ready-made bread dough
flour for rolling the dough
30ml olive oil
5 ml Maldon or course salt
Preheat the oven to 180 ° C. Grease a 23cm x 23cm pan (you can also use a regular cake pan). Mix the cheese, mayonnaise and fresh herbs together. Divide the dough into twelve balls and the cheese mixture into twelve parts. Sprinkle flour on the table and press each ball with the palm of your hand into a flat circle +- 1cm thick. Create a hollow in the centre of your flattened dough for the cheese mixture. Fold dough in half and roughly pinch the edges. Form a ball of each, pinching under the dough spheres. Pack in tin. Brush the top of the bread with the olive oil, cover with cling film then leave to rise in a warm place until doubled in size. Remove the cling film, sprinkle with salt then bake for 30 – 45 minutes until the bread is cooked through. Once baked, remove from the tin and pull bread pieces apart to serve.
