Cheese and potato plait recipe details
|butter to grease the tray|
|675 g||strong white flour, plus extra for dusting|
|175 g||floury potatoes, diced|
|14 g||dried yeast, two 7 g sachets easy-blend dried yeast|
|450 ml||vegetable stock|
|2||garlic cloves, crushed|
|2 tbsp||rosemary, freshly chopped|
|115 g||Gruyere cheese, grated|
|1 tbsp||vegetable oil|
InstructionsLightly grease and flour a baking tray.
Cook the potatoes until soft. Drain well, then mash.
Transfer the mash into a large bowl and stir in the yeast, flour and vegetable stock. Add garlic, rosemary and 90 g of the Gruyère cheese and knead until well combined. Pour in the oil in a hollow of the dough and knead the dough again until smooth and elastic. Cover the bowl and let the dough rest for at least 1 hour until doubled in size.
Punch down the dough, knead again, then evenly divide the dough into 3 parts and form them to strips. Press one end of the strips firmly together and braid the strands to form a plait. Press the ends together and fold under the loaf. Place the loaf on the prepared baking tray, cover and allow the dough to rise for a further 30 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 190°C/ 375°F/ Gas Mark 5.
Sprinkle the remaining cheese over the top of the plait and bake in the preheated oven for approximately 40 minutes.
