Apple and Devon Oke cheese bread

This delicious apple & cheese loaf is really what you might call a quick bread. It relies on baking powder to give it rise rather than yeast. It is simple but rewarding, and can be made in a bread machine if you like. Devon Oke is a lovely melt in the mouth cheddar style cheese made near Okehampton. They also do a smoked version which gives another flavour dimension when using it in cooking. I found that Bramley apples gave the best flavour.


Step 1 Grease the loaf tin. Sieve together the flour, salt & baking powder. Rub the butter into the fl our mixture with your fingertips until it resembles the texture of breadcrumbs

Step 2 Stir in the grated apples, cheese & eggs and mix well until evenly blended

Step 3 Spoon the batter into your loaf tin and baked in a pre heated oven at 170°C for 1 ó hours until a metal skewer inserted in the middle comes out clean. Turn out and allow to cool on a wire rack.

It is great served fresh from the oven with lashings of salty butter or cheese and chutney. I found it really good the next day toasted with a poached egg on top!
