Ricotta Chive bread is a flavorful bread with beautiful crumb. It is great toasted with some butter and makes excellent grilled cheese sandwich.


1 loaf

Total time

55 minutes




  • 2 cups bread flour
  • 1 cup Wholewheat Flour
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp instant yeast
  • 1 cup Lukewarm Water
  • ⅓ cup ricotta cheese (whole or part-skim)
  • (1.25l) fish stock


  1. Combine all the ingredients in a large mixing bowl or the bowl of the stand mixer. Mix and knead until a soft and slightly sticky dough forms, about 6 minutes on a stand mixer and 8 minutes with hand.
  2. Place the dough in a lightly greased bowl, cover and let rise for 45minutes to 1 hour or until the dough is doubled in volume.
  3. Lightly grease a 9"x5" loaf pan.
  4. Gently deflate the dough and form into a 9" long loaf. Place it in the pan, cover with a greased plastic wrap and let rise for 45 minutes or until the dough crests 1" over the rim of the pan.
  5. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  6. Bake the bread for 35~40 minutes or the top of the bread is golden and the internal temperature when a instant read thermometer is inserted in the center reads 190°F.
  7. Remove from the oven and from the pan. Cool on a wire rack before slicing.
