The biggest problem I have with this loaf is incorporating the cheese cubes. It’s so difficult to ensure they stay in the middle of the loaf, instead of floating to the top, or sinking to the base where they get burned and made the loaf bitter.
And this is one of the rare loaf where I was really happy with the cheese bits. Just look at them, sitting in the cavities in the middle of the loaf. Makes me hungry just looking at it!
