Cheese Bread with a No Knead, Melt in the Mouth Bread

A very simple to make cheese bread with a soft, melt in the mouth bread base. The dough can be prepared in no time as it involves only blending the wet ingredients and pouringit into the flour and mixing it together, no kneading required. 

This cheese bread resembles the Arabic Fatayer/Manaish a lot but I didn’t name it that way as the dough recipe is not like the traditional fatayer dough. It is slightly different as we are adding milk powder and cream cheese in it. But my friends, I must say that this bread is too good. It literally melts in the mouth. I’m not kidding. The stringy soft mozzarella cheese and the tender crust compliments each other really well.

My kids enjoy this a lot with just plain cheese, but I’ve made chicken pizza with this base and it was good. I sometimes make the dough in bulk and freeze it too for meal planning. Talking about the meal planning video, I’m shooting it again after I lost most of the video I took previously which was so disappointing. I am planning to post it at the end of this month. So wait for it. 🙂

Hope this cheese bread will be your new favorite recipe. Please do give it a try.

  1. Hello, is there any substitute for milk powder? Would really love to try your recipe. Looks so yummy! Greetings from Germany, Pia

    1. Hello Pia,
      You can skip it. You can replace water with milk. I’m not sure if the bread would be as soft as this, as I dint try with this replacement. I am guessing it would be fine. So glad to know that I have viewer all the way from Germany. 🙂

  2. Assalamualaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakathuhu…I made it with cream and it turned out great! Thank you so much…Made the boti kebabs too yesterday…it was so good..

  3. Hi am planning to make ahead and keep. After freezing it how do you defrost, like how long should we leave it out before we roll and bake?

    1. Keep the dough in the refrigerator the night before you plan to make it. And on the day you are going to bake it, keep it out of the fridge and hour or two before baking.
