    It's great fun to make bread - it's a bit like playing with Play-Doh. You can form these into round buns or into delicious cheesy animal shapes.

    Makes 6 bread rolls or animals.

    Ingredients

    ● 250g strong plain flour (plus flour to dust)
    ● Generous pinch of salt
    ● 1 sachet (½ tbsp) fast-action dried yeast
    ● ½ tsp honey
    ● 1 tsp dried mustard powder
    ● Pinch of cayenne pepper
    ● Approx 200 ml of warm water
    ● 60g grated mature Cheddar cheese
    ● 2tbsp freshly grated Parmesan cheese

    To decorate
    ● 1 egg, beaten
    ● Currants, sesame seeds, poppy seeds, grated Cheddar cheese

    Method

    ● Sift the flour and salt into a mixing bowl. Stir in the yeast, honey, cayenne pepper and mustard and just enough of the water to form a soft dough.
    ● Transfer to a floured surface and knead lightly for about 5-10 minutes to make a smooth, pliable dough. Gradually knead the grated cheese into the dough (this will produce a slightly streaky effect).
    ● Shape the dough into balls or animal shapes and transfer to a floured baking sheet.
    ● Cover them loosely with a tea-towel and leave to rise in a warm place for about
    1 hour or until doubled in size.
    ● Brush with the egg. If making buns, sprinkle the tops with sesame seeds, poppy seeds or grated cheese. Add currants for eyes on the animal shapes.
    ● Transfer to an oven preheated to 200˚C and bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown. The underside should sound hollow when tapped.
    ● Cool on a wire rack.
