Savory bread with Mrs Balls chutney
30 ml Mrs.H.S.Ball’s Original Chutney
150ml of white wine
100 ml olive oil
½ teaspoon salt
2½ cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon of baking powder
150g grated white and yellow shredded mild cheddar
1 bunch of finely chopped grass onions/spring onions
80g crumbled bacon pieces
275g deli corned beef (cubed)
375ml bottle of black olives (or if you have, you can use ½ black and ½ green olives), cut smaller – preferably used pitted olives – easier to work with.
1 teaspoon dried salad herb blend (I did not have any parsley)
In a large bowl, whisk together the wine, oil, eggs, and salt.
Then start by adding the flour and baking powder. Do not mix
Chop the onion finely, add the bacon and sliced olives, parsley and cut the deli meat – just pile them all one on top of the other.
Lastly, add the Mrs.H.S.Ball’s chutney and grated cheese and mix.
Pour into a buttered bread pan and sprinkle some more salad herb over the top, before placing it in the oven.
Bake in the oven for ±1 hour at 360°F (180°C)
Tip: When you measure the wine (at the very beginning), be sure to pour a glass for yourself, to sample and enjoy while preparing the bread! I can promise you, it’s yummy!!
Please be careful with the salt, if you use salty deli meat, it may be best to not use the ½ teaspoon salt indicated in the recipe. I had a slice with a cuppa coffee, and it’s super moist and so good.
