A quick Bread Fix

This recipe is from Kay's kayotic kitchen, she loves bread as much as I do.  Her site is here
I won't write much about this other than it's quick, easy and very satisfying if you need a bread fix in a hurry.She is correct when she says to eat it straight from the oven with butter slathered all over it.  OMG wonderful.

2 cups flour
2 oz butter
1/2 tsp salt
1 tbsp baking powder
4 oz aged cheese  *(I used asiago)
2 tsp dried parsley
1/2 tsp dried thyme
2 tsp dried (red) onion flakes *I have not found these in the US) so I used dried reg. onion flakes
1 tsp chili flakes
1/2 cup milk + 2 tbsp
1 egg

Combine 2 cups all-purpose flour with 1/2 a tsp salt, 1 tbsp baking powder and sieve it.  Cut in the butter.  Add 1 tsp dried chili flakes for a little extra kick (this won’t make it hot, it will just add some zing you can omit it if you like), 1/2 a tsp dried thyme and 2 tsp dried parsley.    Mix it all up. 
Add the grated cheese to the flour and butter mix.  Lightly beat an egg, combine it with the milk and pour it in. Mix it up with a fork. 
Sprinkle a little flour on a cutting board (or your counter top) and transfer the dough. It’ll be quite crumbly at this point. 

Start kneading until you have a supple dough. Shape it into a round shape.  Line a baking tray with baking paper and place the dough on top. Cut a deep X into the top of the dough.  Bake in preheated 400 F oven for approximately 30 minutes.
This would be wonderful in the winter time with some homemade potato or cheese and broccoli soup or I guess any homemade soup.
And the piece ready to eat.
Thanks Kay for this wonderful recipe.
Have a wonderful day and thanks for coming by.  Remember to find the Time to Do All the Things You love.
