SAVORY PEANUT LOAF

Ingredients:
450 grams flour (+50 grams)
300 ml warm milk
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 teaspoons instant dry yeast
2 teaspoons sugar
1 teaspoon salt
100 grams of cottage cheese
80-100 grams of roasted unsalted peanuts


Mix the instant dry yeast, warm milk, sugar and 1 teaspoon of flour mixed and leave it for about 15 minutes to activate. Pour the activated yeast and oil into the flour sifted with salt and knead to make soft dough. Allow the dough to rise for about an hour, knead it a few times, gently, and then leave to rise again, for about 30 minutes more. In the meantime, chop or crush the peanuts (crush them with a rolling pin or chop them in a blender) and mix well with cheese.
Take the dough out of the bowl, lightly dust the surface with flour (you will not need much) and press the dough out with your hands to make an ellipse out of it. Roll it out a bit more, using a rolling pin, spread the filling evenly, then fold the longer sides towards the middle. Then roll the dough into a loaf starting at the shorter side.
Place the loaf in a prepared pan (I lined mine with baking paper) and leave it to rise for about 30 minutes. Bake it in a preheated oven, at 220°C (430°F), for about 10 minutes, then reduce the temperature to 180°C (350°F), cover the loaf with foil and bake for another 20-25 minutes.

  1. I am so impressed by the source of your flour - from your Grandma...how lovely. This is a great idea for a loaf - I really like the swirly layers in it. Do you think a different kind of nut would work (not too keen on peanuts)?

  2. Hvala Jovana :)

    Thank you, Sally :)
    Yes, a different kind of nut would certainly work, I made it with just plain cheese, cheese & peanuts and cheese&almonds (a little experiment) :)
    Works with any type of nut (or anything that matches with cheese) :)

  5. Veoma mastovito i verujem ukusno za grickanje, pogotovo kad se dodje do onog dela sa kikirikijem!;)))

  6. What a great idea. Adding the spiral filling hardly takes any work but looks wonderful and doubtless tastes great, too. Thanks for the inspiration!
