cottage cheese herbed bread
During the week my wife gave me a book she picked up for 50 cents from a charity shop " The Laurel's Kitchen Breadbook" and i thought i'd give a recipe a go, i chose the Cottage Cheese Herbed Loaf.
I did divert a bit from the recipee as i chose to make it 50% wholemeal rather than 100%, i also used slightly less flat leaf Parsley as my bunch was under the weight suggested i did include some fresh time from the garden though. It ended up being a rather sticky dough due to the cottage cheese breaking down slowly during the mixing. i think if i was doing it again id mix the wholemeal flour and the cottage cheese together first to assimilate the cheese earlier. I also got to use my Romertoph clay baker for the first time, which was another charity shop find. I was suprised with this loaf as it was carrying high proportions of Cottage Cheese, Flat leaf parsley including the stalks and some sauted onion. I used Compressed yeast for this one. This was a tasty bread that went well dipping into a Malaysian Laksa and excellent on its own with a lashing of butter. I'm sure it would keep well but alas half was gifted and the other half has gone.
