Breakfast Sunday 7 October 2007 - Pear & Cheese Bread

I had two slices Pear & Cheese Bread, some butter & coffee

Pear & Cheese Bread
2 williams Pears (250g)
60 ml water
30g honey
10g dried yeast
30g dried skimmed milk powder
50g cheddar cheese
300g strong white bread flour
1 tsp salt

Cut the pears into ¼ths, remove the core and place in a small non-stick skillet. Cover and cook over very low heat until soft, about 15 minutes. Do not allow to brown. Add a tablespoon of water if they are not releasing any juice. Pass the pears through a sieve.

Add the yeast and honey to the water and allow the yeast to bloom.

Add the pear puree and stir well. Add the dry ingredients, including the cheese, and knead well fro 5 minutes, or until smooth & elastic.

Allow to rise until double in bulk. Punch down and knead again. Allow to rise a second time until doubled, then punch down and knead again.

Form into a loaf, place into a 2lb tin and allow to rise. Bake in a hot oven (Gas 7 or 8) until browned and done.

Makes one 725g loaf
