Cheese & Caramelised Onion Couronne

I never got around to making a Couronne (crown) during week 6 of The Great Bloggers Bake Off but they looked so tempting, with all that filling oozing out. A combination of the weather turning very cold suddenly and an abundance of carrots in the fridge I decided I would make a soup, and of course a soup is best served with freshly baked bread. I also seem to have an abundance of onions ready for more chutney making that I haven't got around to yet so I decided to caramelise some and add it to the bread.

Cheese & Caramelised Onion Couronne

For the dough
500g white bread flour
pinch of salt
pinch of sugar
7g yeast
50g butter, softened
225-250ml milk

4 small onions
2 tbsp olive oil
140g Cheddar cheese, grated

  • Add the flour, salt, sugar & yeast to a bowl
  • Add the softened butter and approx 225ml of milk & mix well until it all comes together, adding more milk as required
  • Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and knead for approx 10 minutes until you have a smooth & stretchy dough
  • Place in a greased bowl & cover with clingfilm & place in a warm spot for approx 1hour until doubled in size
  • Meanwhile peel & thinly slice the onions
  • Heat the olive oil in a pan & add the onions
  • Fry over a medium/high heat for 2-3 minutes
  • Turn the heat down & cook until the onions are soft & caramel brown in colour, leave to cool
  • Turn the proved dough out onto a lightly floured surface & knock back
  • Roll the dough out into a large rectangle
  • Spread the onion & grated cheese (reserving a little cheese for the top) evenly over the dough and roll up tightly
  • Slice the rolled up dough lengthways so you have 2 long pieces
  • Twist these pieces together and then form them into a crown
  • Place on a baking sheet and cover with clingfilm & leave to prove for another hour or so
  • Sprinkle over the remaining cheese
  • Bake in a preheated 200 C oven for approx 25 minutes, until golden brown
