This hearty sandwich loaf has a beautifully crunchy crust and is studded with sweet apples and sharp cheddar cheese.
Serves: 1 loaf
  • ½ tablespoon instant yeast
  • ½ tablespoon salt
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 apple, diced finely (1 cup)
  • ½ cup sharp cheddar cheese
  1. In a large bowl, combine the yeast, salt and water. Stir in the flour with a wooden spoon, followed by the apple and cheese. If you can’t get all of the flour incorporated with the spoon, use your hands. Don’t knead the dough; simply mix it until everything is incorporated.
  2. Cover the dough loosely with plastic wrap and let it rise at room temperature for 2 hours. You can proceed with the recipe from here, or you can put the dough in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
  3. When you’re ready to make the bread, turn the dough out onto a counter and shape it into an oval loaf. Place it in a buttered loaf pan and let it rise for 90 minutes. With 30 minutes to go, preheat the oven to 450°F and place a high-sided baking pan on the lowest rack of the oven.
  4. Pour 1 cup of water into the empty baking pan, then place the bread on the middle rack of the oven. Bake for 45 minutes, or until golden brown.
  5. Remove the loaf from the bread pan and allow it to cool on a cooling rack. Slice and devour.
