Mozzarella bread - so soft and delicious!

Here is another wonderful recipe! This time I made delicious, fantastic, and soft mozzarella bread. I had mozzarella in the fridge. So, I typed in the words: dough and mozzarella and found a recipe on the net, just as I expected. But I had to modify it. I didn't want to risk putting a coating of garlic over the bread (although I think it’s a fantastic combination), because my children have a specific taste: D Also, I didn't have time to wait for the dough to stand and rise (the children were very hungry), so I shortened the whole procedure and made it simpler, a quick but very tasty variant of the recipe I found. As always I had my little helper who enjoys dipping her fingers into the dough. So let's start:)



For the dough:

  • 5 g of dry yeast
  • 125 ml of milk
  • 300 g of flour
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 80 g butter
  • 200 g mozzarella cheese

For the coating: 1 egg, sesame, and cumin


Add a teaspoon of sugar and dry yeast to the lukewarm milk. Wait for the yeast to work. Pour flour into a mixing bowl, add a mixture of yeast and milk, a teaspoon of salt, and softened butter.



Knead a smooth dough that does not stick to your fingers. As a rule, you should wait an hour for the dough to "rest" and rise, then knead again.


But as I said, I didn't have time to wait, because the kids were very impatient and hungry: D so I decided to avoid unnecessary nervousness :) I put the dough in a baking dish and pressed it to cover the bottom.


Then, with a sharp knife, cut out the lines as in the picture and form squares on the surface of the dough.


Cut the mozzarella into strips, then insert it into each of the slits.



Simply, the dough likes to stand for a while, so I covered the baking dish with a cloth and left the dough to rest for about 20 minutes. After that, I covered it with beaten egg and sprinkled it with sesame and cumin.


Finally, put the mozzarella bread in a preheated oven and bake for about half an hour at 220 degrees.


The mozzarella bread turned out better than I expected. I was afraid it wouldn't grow, but it grew just right. In these parts, bread is one of the favorite foods. When the bread is warm and soft, we say "Soft as a soul". My mozzarella bread was just like that!.😊



My family was thrilled with mozzarella bread, so I will definitely make it many times. The mozzarella melted nicely, the taste was fantastic, and the bread turned out cottony soft. I will also make it according to the original recipe, but my version of mozzarella bread is also great. I hope you enjoyed it as much as we did :)

Bon appetit!

Hi @ladysnowhite

Oh, you had some helping hands? Cute 🙂
I see you say that it is soft, so you were satisfied with the results, I guess. My main "problem" with these kind of baking adventures is that the result use to be a dry structure, so I completely gave up 🤦🏻‍♀️🤣

Children love to play with the dough and it hypnotizes them, so even though they slow me down, at least they are calm: D Sometimes my dough is dry and hard and it doesn't grow as I want, but the more often you knead the dough, the more skilled you become.
Thanks for stopping by @mipiano. Regards!😊

Yes, they like it. Mine was willing to help before, now it is a bit more difficult to get him into the kitchen, unless he prepares for himself the breakfast if wants something else than my offer.
In my case it went backwards, I used to bake better, now it seems I am worse 🤣 Oh, and we don't have a typical bakery here to buy some pastries ... And what would I give now for a burek .. Oh no, I'm dreaming about food and it's almost midnight. Not good! :D

Maybe it's better that way, it's not easy to be fit with bakeries on every corner: D Where are you from? Burek is an iconic dish throughout ex YU 😂

Hahaha, I can always find some other thing that is not letting me to be fit 🤣 unfortunately

Yeah, burek.... you can find the answer to your question in the comment section of this post :D hehehe

Pozdrav ;)

Malo sam ukljucila svoj geografski mozak @mipiano , pa sam ukapirala da si severnije od Novog Sada :) Ali za tacnu lokaciju sam gvirnula u mapu :) Odabrala si divnu zemlju za emigraciju :D Pozdravljam te puno!

My wife and I are preparing something like that)

I prepared bread for the first time this way and I really like it! :) You could set up some of your characteristic dishes. For example, when I was in Ukraine as a child, more precisely in Lviv, I have some interesting memories left. For example, I remember eating a salad with cucumbers and sour cream for the first time and that sour cream was often used in combinations that were foreign to me, the taste of your candies that was unusual to me and that we put on the Christmas tree as a decoration😊, and ice cream that was not cold😃

Yes, traveling and getting to know someone else's culture is always very exciting, and the cuisine is always a delight)
