Duration: 33 minutes | Difficulty: Easy | Servings: 12


1 ½ cups self-raising flour, plus extra to dust
¾ cup shredded tasty cheddar, plus extra ¼ cup
½ tsp fine salt
3 tbsp finely chopped flat-leaf parsley leaves
1 cup Greek-style natural yoghurt
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 clove garlic, minced
1 egg, lightly beaten


1. In a bowl combine the flour, tasty cheddar and salt. Stir in 2 tablespoons of the parsley. Then, make a well in the centre and add the yoghurt, oil and garlic. 

2. Carefully use a knife to combine the mixture, using a cutting action to form into a rough dough. 

3. Next, use your hands to knead briefly, forming the dough into a ball. Transfer to a clean dry bench and squash slightly into a disc.

4. Cut the dough into 12 even-sized wedges, and roll each into a ball. Lightly dust your hands in extra flour, if mixture becomes too sticky to work with.

5. Arrange the dough balls into the Philips XXL baking tray. Place tray into the basket of the Philips XXL Air Fryer with Smart Sensing Technology.

6. Set temperature to 180°C and time to 15 minutes, air frying the dough balls until they are golden. 

7. Next, brush the loaf with a little egg, and sprinkle with remaining parsley and the extra cheddar. Set the temperature to 160°C and the time to 3 minutes, air frying the bread until the cheese has melted. 

8. Remove the baking tray and set aside for 5 minutes before turning out the loaf and serving warm or at room temperature.
