Mediterranean Loaf

Today, in honour of the recent ‘bread week’ showstoppers seen on The Great British Bake Off ( I have only just caught up due to my three week holiday- bad form for a hardcore fan), I created a stuffed picnic loaf.

For my ‘showstopper’ I decided on a twisted design inspired by talented contestant Richard. In my loaf I layered red pepper pesto, aubergine, yellow peppers and feta cheese topped with basil.

You’ll need patience if you wish to produce a similar loaf as my recipe took three rounds of proving as well as shaping and reshaping to create the perfect appearance.

I hope you like the Mediterranean theme I’ve adopted and feel like having a go at some of the challenges Mary and Paul present in the coming weeks; I’m going to be attempting a round per week in my own kitchen!
