  • Recipe serves2 loaves
  • Preparation time70 minutes
  • Cooking time30 minutes


  • 10g sachet instant yeast
  • 5ml white sugar
  • 62.5ml warm water
  • 62.5ml milk
  • Cake flour for sprinkling
  • 4 cups cake flour
  • 125ml warm water
  • 125ml warm milk
  • 15ml sunflower oil
  • 1 sachet KNORR Brown Onion Soup
  • 250ml biltong, sliced
  • 2 rounds feta cheese, crumbled


  • Preheat oven to 180C
  • Place yeast and sugar together in a bowl. In a measuring jug mix together the warm water and milk and add this to the yeast and sugar, give it a good stir to ensure the yeast has dissolved
  • Lightly sprinkle the top of the yeast mixture with some cake flour and place the bowl in a warm place to allow the yeast to activate – a good place would be on top of your stove
  • In the mean time begin to make you bread dough by placing cake flour into a large bowl and lightly season this with some salt and freshly ground black pepper then stir to combine
  • In a jug mix together the warm milk and warm water
  • Once the yeast mixture has become frothy it is now ready to add to the cake flour
  • Using a spoon make a well in the centre of your flour and alternate between adding some yeast mixture and some of the milk and water mixture until all the liquids have been added and you have a sticky dough
  • Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and begin to knead it until you have a smooth and well mixed dough
  • Using the sunflower oil, oil the sides and base of a bowl and place the dough into the bowl - the oil will stop the dough from sticking to the bowl
  • Cover the bowl with a cloth and place into a warm place for 15 minutes to rise
  • After 15 minutes test the dough to see if it is sufficiently risen by pressing your finger into the dough – if the dough does not bounce back it is ready
  • Remove the dough from the bowl and begin to knock it back – this is the process of removing the air from the dough
  • Then divide the dough in half and flatten each half into a rectangle that is the same length as your loaf tin
  • Sprinkle each half with half of the contents of the sachet of KNORR Brown Onion Soup and top with half of the biltong and crumbled feta
  • Using your fingers roll each half up like a swiss roll and place into a floured loaf tin with the side that has the join on the bottom of the tin
  • Cover the loaf tins with a cloth and leave to rise for 10 – 15 minutes then lightly brush with egg wash
  • Using scissors snip the top of each loaf to score
  • Bake in a preheated oven at 180C for 30 minutes or until the bread has a hollow sound when tapped
  • When ready turn the loaves out onto a cooling rack to cool before slicing
