This “Cheesy Pull Apart Bread” I baked a few days ago was a massive hit in my home!
Long time ago I used to bake a lot of different types of breads, biscuits, pastries and many more things but somehow after coming back from CIA (Culinary Institute of America) I stopped baking and concentrated more on culinary over baking. Even on my jobs I was always cooking never baking!
But recently after buying Thermomix I thought I will give one of my favourite recipes (it was this Cheesy Pull Apart Bread) a try just to see how good the dough the machine makes. I was pleasantly surprised by the result, the dough was fantastic, I didn’t have to put too much effort in and my bread was delicious. You can easily make this dough with any stand, hand mixers or even by hand.
I wanted to make this Cheesy Pull Apart Bread with a little rye flour because rye flour is more healthy and nutritious than plain flour. Also just to make me feel better about my lifestyle choices and I could eat this cheesy goodness without any guilt! 😉
After I posted a picture on my Instagram stories I got so many requests for the recipe so here I am posting a recipe for both thermomix and non thermomix users.
