Cherry Tomato and Spinach Bread

 

Ingredients

  • 150g/5½oz self-raising flour, plus extra for dusting
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 85g/3oz butter, cubed
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 free-range egg, beaten
  • 2 tbsp milk or yoghurt
  • 2 handfuls spinach leaves, torn
  • 6 cherry tomatoes
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
 

Method

Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4.

Place the flour, baking powder, butter and salt and freshly ground black pepper into a bowl and combine until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.

Add the beaten egg and milk to bind the mixture, adding more flour or milk as necessary, then mix to form a dough. Add the torn spinach leaves to the food processor and mix until roughly combined.

Knead the dough on a floured surface, then shape into a round and transfer onto a baking sheet. Using your fingertips, make six indentations, large enough to hold the cherry tomatoes in the top of the dough.

Press the cherry tomatoes into the indentations, drizzle over the olive oil and bake in the oven for 10-12 minutes, or until golden-brown and cooked through.
