Cheddar & Herb pull apart Bread

Ever since my new IBS diet has been instilled I have been obsessed with finding bread recipes without butter or eggs. Actually it turns out that not only are there lots but they taste just as good if not sometimes better than buttered roll recipes.

Cheese & Herb Pull-apart bread From The essential Baking Cookbook
7g Sachet dried yeast
1 ts sugar
4 C plain flour
1 1/2 ts salt
2 tbs chopping fresh parsley
2 tbs chopped fresh chives
1 tbs chopped fresh thyme
60 g Cheddar, grated
milk, to glaze ( I didn't glaze)
Mix yeast, sugar and 1/2 C warm water in a small bowl and stir well. Leave for 10 minutes. Bubbles should applear on the surface.
Sift flour and slat in a bowl and make a well in the centre and add yeast mixture and 1 C warm water. Mix to a soft dough. Turn out on floured surface and knead for 10 minutes or till smooth. Place in oiled bowl, cover and leave for 1 hour.
Punch down dough and knead for 1 minute. Divide dough in half and shape each half into 10 flat discs, 2 1/2 inches in diameter. Mix fresh herbs with cheese and put 2 ts mixture on each disc. Press another disc on top and repeat with remaing discs and mixture.
Grease a loaf tin andstand filled discs upright in the prepared tin, squashing them together. Cover and let rise 30 minutes. Preheat oven 415 degrees F. Bake 30 minutes.
