Pull-Apart Cheddar & Smokey Tomato with Garlic Chutney Bread Recipe


Serves 6


  • Place the flour in a bowl, along with the salt on one side, the sugar in the middle and the yeast to the other – make sure they don’t touch until everything gets mixed together with the water! Sprinkle in the thyme leaves or whichever herbs you’re using.

  • Add your warm water and mix together with a wooden spoon and then by hand for 10-12 minutes until you have a silky, elastic dough. Place the dough in a greased bowl and cover in clingfilm. Leave somewhere warm to prove for about an hour until doubled in size.

  • Once the dough has doubled, roll it out into a rectangle. Brush the dough liberally with a few spoonfuls of The Cherry Tree Smokey Tomato & Garlic Chutney and then cover with slices of The Cherry Tree Caramelised Onion Cheddar.

  • Cut the dough into eight equal squares and fold these in half. Place all of the dough squares into the loaf tin with the open end facing upwards.

  • Cover with clingfilm or a damp cloth and allow to prove for an hour again until doubled in size.

  • Preheat the oven till Gas Mark 6/200°C/Fan 180°C.

  • Bake for 25-30 minutes until golden and cooked through.

  • Brush with with garlic butter or oil and enjoy while still warm!
