Herb & Cheese Bread

Undoubtedly the best way to start the #weekend : a cup of coffee, a book and warm slices of this #herb and #fetacheese bread. Aromatic and moist, this bread is equally delicious when made with cream cheese cubes or cheddar. Use a generous portion of your favourite fresh herbs — I wouldn’t recommend dried herbs for this recipe. It’s a fairly basic and quick bake and is a great option for your next hi-tea get together too! I hope you like it!
