Stilton, Honey and Walnut Bread


If you've ever had a wedge of Stilton cheese that's been drizzled with honey and sprinkled with walnuts, a common enough offering on a cheese board, then you know just how delectable this bread will be. Wheat flour and rye flour make for a hearty loaf that can stand up to the strong flavor of the blue cheese. Other types of blue cheese will also work here, including Gorgonzola or Roquefort.


350 grams wheat flour
150 grams rye flour (whole)
1 teaspoon salt
15 grams bakers yeast (fresh)
260 milliliters warm water
2 tablespoons honey
90 grams stilton (or other blue cheese)
60 grams walnuts


1In a bowl, mix the flour and salt. Form a well in the center.
2Dissolve the yeast in some of the warm water and combine with the remaining water and honey. Pour into the well.
3Place the kneading hook on the mixer and knead the dough. Alternately, form the dough by hand and place on a floured surface. Knead for 10 minutes.
4Once kneaded, add the cheese and chopped walnuts and knead just to incorporate.
5Place the dough in a bowl and cover with a cloth. Set in a warm place to rise for 60-90 minutes, or until doubled in size.
6Place the dough on a floured surface and knead a little. Form into a ball, adding flour to the work surface as needed.
7Let dough rise for another 45 minutes.
8Preheat oven to 400°F. Place the dough in a baking pan lined with parchment paper. Cut the surface with a knife.
9Bake for about 35-45 minutes until golden and when there is a hollow sound when the bottom of the loaf is tapped. Cool and slice.
