Stilton Bread

A little Stilton makes homemade bread even more irresistible! Delicious served warm from the oven.


  • 225g wholemeal flour
  • 225g plain flour
  • 1 1?2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 115g Blue Stilton, cubed, plus a little extra for crumbling
  • 300ml buttermilk or skimmed milk


1. Sift the wholemeal and plain flours into a mixing bowl and add the bicarbonate of soda.

2. Stir in the cubed Stilton and enough buttermilk to make the dough soft.

3. Turn out the dough on to a floured board and knead lightly. Shape into a round loaf and score a cross into the top. Place the loaf on a lightly greased baking sheet.

4. Cook in a preheated oven (220°/gas mark 7) for 35 minutes until brown. Just before the end of the cooking time, sprinkle on the remaining crumbled Stilton.
