  • 250 g Strong wholemeal flour
  • ½ tsp Baking powder
  • ½ tsp Bicarbonate of soda
  • ½ tsp Salt
  • 100 g Extra mature Cheddar cheese grated
  • 1 rounded tbsp Apple Chutney I used Apple & Walnut
  • 200 mls Cider


  • Pre-heat the oven to 190⁰C.
  • Prepare a baking sheet with a sprinkling of flour.
  • Put all the dry ingredients into a bowl and mix together.
  • Then add the grated Cheddar and chutney.
  • Add the cider and stir with a wooden spoon to combine.
  • Now put your hands in (oiling them helps immensely) and bring the dough together quickly by kneading into a ball, adding a little extra flour if necessary. Don’t overwork the dough, speed is of the essence!
  • Place the dough ball on the floured baking sheet and flatten a little, dust with flour and then mark a cross into it with a sharp knife.
  • Bake for 30 minutes or until loaf sounds hollow when knocked on the base.
