IMG_7448 To celebrate the launch of Dough Box, we thought we better bring you a brand new recipe for a batch of Cheese and Pesto Whirls. The smell of freshly baked bread is to die for and we're sure you'll love these buns and they'll leave your friends and family asking you for more. Ingredients (makes x12) 450g wholemeal bread flour 7g dried yeast 1 tbsp sugar 1tsp sea salt 2 tbsp olive oil 190g pot tomato pesto 150g mature cheddar, grated 100g sun-dried tomatoes Method Mix the flour, yeast, sugar and salt in a large bowl. Pour in 300ml of warm water and the olive oil. Mix with a wooden spoon until combined. Place the dough onto the work surface and knead for 10minutes, it should be soft and elastic. Place in a clean, oiled bowl and cover with clingfilm. Place somewhere warm for 1 hour or until the dough has doubled in size. IMG_7442 IMG_7443 Line a square baking tin with greaseproof paper. Pour the dough onto a lightly floured work surface and roll into a large rectangle. Spread over the pesto, cheese and sun-dried tomatoes. Roll up the rectangle starting with one of the long edges. Trim the ends of the roll so they are straight. Cut the roll into 12 and place the sections, whirl facing up, in the prepared tray. Cover with clingfilm and leave to rise again for 45 minutes.
