Cheese, chorizo & chilli bread


  • Mix the yeast with the tepid water and set aside for 10 mins. 
  • In another bowl, mix the chillies, spring onions, 500 gm flour, cheese, sambel, sugar, salt and oil until well combined. Add the yeast mixture and mix well (adding a little more flour if the dough is too sticky and a little more water if too dry). Then knead with your hands and put in a large, lightly oiled bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and set aside in a warm place until doubled in size.
  • When ready, add chorizo with a little more flour if needed. Knead well, put in a lightly oiled springform cake tin (or bread tin), cover with plastic wrap and set aside until almost doubled again.
  • Preheat oven to 180°C fan forced (200°C normal).
  • Beat the egg with the milk. Then brush the top of the bread with the egg wash and cook in the oven for about 30-40 mins until hollow when the base is tapped with your knuckle.
  • Slice and serve warm with good butter on the side.
