Celeriac and Cheese Bread

Ingredients | Serves 4-6 | Cook 47 Mins

  • 175g celeriac (peeled weight)
  • 110g Lancashire cheese, roughly crumbled into 1cm pieces
  • 175g self-raising flour, plus a little extra for the top of the loaf
  • 4 spring onions, finely chopped (including the green parts)
  • Pinch cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tbsp milk
  • You’ll also need a small baking tray, very well greased


  • Preheat oven to 190C/gas mark 5.
  • Sift the flour into a large mixing bowl , add the spring onions, two-thirds of the crumble cheese, the cayenne pepper and the salt. Then, using the coarse side of a grater, grate in the celeriac. Give everything a really good mix. Beat the egg and milk together and, using a palette know to mix, gradually add it all to the mixture until you have a loose, rough dough.
  • Transfer the dough to the baking tray and, still keeping the rough texture, shape it into a round with your hands. Net, lightly press the rest of the cheese over the surface, sprinkle with a little flour and bake the bread on the middle shelf of the oven for 45-50 minutes, or until golden brown. Cool on a wire rack and eat as fresh as possible. This is lovely served warm, and if you have any left over, it’s really good toasted.
