National Braai Day and a recipe for bread

The 24th of September was Heritage Day as you know, and it was also the day before college started all over again… The short little break we had was fun but too short!

Heritage Day is there for you to embrace your heritage – you might not do it by having a braai, because it might not be your heritage, but my heritage is having a braai and thus we had one!

The other day I was at my friend Yvonne’s house, and we had a braai – she made this delicious bread, so I thought I would share the recipe:

Perfect bread for a braai


1 bag of pre-made dough (I bought it at Everfresh)
300g Cheddar Cheese
Pouring Cream


Toll out the dough, roughly 1cm thick.
Spread the Marmite on the dough, just enough to cover the dough.
Grate the cheese and spread it over the Marmite.
Roll the dough so it forms the shape of a Swiss roll.
Slice it now around 1cm, so it forms little wheels.
Place these on a greased oven tray.
Leave to rise for about 1 hour.
During this time, pre-heat the oven to ± 160ºC.
After 1 hour, lightly pour the cream over the bread. Use your discretion as to how much you want to use.
Place the bread in the oven to bake for ± 30 minutes.
After 30 minutes, check to see if it is cooked. The best way to check is to remove one bun and taste. If it is a bit chewy, place back in the oven for a couple more minutes.

Voilá and enjoy!
