Easter bread with cheese and an egg
Wow, I cannot believe we are etching very fast towards Easter. What ever happened to time? I’ve been all wrapped up in exciting new projects of which I’ll be sharing some more soon. It’s been busy with work too and while I have a ton of Easter recipes lined up, I’ll be likely posting them after Easter.. Lol…
But this particular one I could not leave behind as that is so Easter specific it would be silly posting it the day after Easter right?
I am sure most of you are aware of the attacks that happened in Brussels earlier this week and in Ankara as well. Like everyone I am shocked, angry and in utter disbelief that people are doing that to one another. But I will not dwell on it too long, as I refuse to be led by fear. I had a conversation with a friend who told me that her friends didn’t want to travel anymore out of fear of anything happening. While I understand that sentiment, I will not let my actions be led my some insane terrorists. That is – after all – exactly what they want.
That is also the reason I will continue to post happy recipes but know that my mind is wondering where on earth this will end. I don’t have the answer, so instead I give you this recipe.
- 500 gr flour
- 300 gr water luke warm
- 7 gram dried active yeast
- 10 gr salt
- 50 gr butter
- 100 gr old cheese grated
- 3 boiled eggs
Mix all ingredients (except the butter) through one another in a mixing bowl and make this into a dough. Add the butter in cubes and knead the dough until you have a pliable soft dough.
Grease a bowl with some oil and put the dough in.
Cover with foil and leave to rise for about an hour in a warm spot. It needs to roughly double in size.
Remove the dough from the bowl and divide into three pieces. Roll each piece to a rectangular size. Sprinkle the grated cheese over it but make sure to leave around 3 cm free on top. Wet this with a little water.
Now rol the dough into a long sausage shape. Put the dough with the seam downwards and cut in the middle but leave the top attached. Wrap the two strings around each other and end by rolling it into some kind of round form and make sure the cut side is on top. Press the egg in the middle
Preheat the oven to 190C and leave them ro rise for half an hour. Bake them in the preheated oven for about 25-30 minutes or until golden.
