February 11, 2019

A crowd pleaser at any braai and a definite hit inside a lunchbox!

  • Prep: 15 mins
  • Cook: 40 mins


750 ml (3 cups) flour

15 ml (3 tsp) baking powder

5 ml (1 tsp) salt

330 ml (1 can) beer

125 ml (1/2 cup) Food Lover's cheddar cheese, grated

125 ml (1/2 cup) biltong, roughly chopped

1 egg, beaten


1Preheat the oven to 180°C and grease a baking sheet.

2Combine the flour, baking powder, salt and beer in a large mixing bowl and mix until a dough forms. Lightly knead the cheddar cheese and biltong into the dough.

3Lightly dust the work surface with flour and divide the dough into 3 equal pieces, roll each piece on the work surface to create a roll of about 20cm – 30cm. Place all 3 rolls next to each other and on one end pinch together all 3 pieces. Plat the rest of the dough and pinch again on the other end to avoid the bread breaking open in the oven.

4Before baking, brush the bread with beaten egg and sprinkle with flaked salt.

5Place the bread on the prepared baking sheet and bake for about 45-50 minutes or until golden brown. You know the bread is cooked through when you tap the bottom and it sounds hollow.

6Enjoy with fresh farm butter.
