1. Preheat your oven to 180°C/Fan 160°C/Gas 4. Sift the flour into a large mixing bowl. Add the grated celeriac, a small pinch of salt and a generous pinch of black pepper. Stir to mix. Add the crumbled stilton and stir again to mix well.
2. Whisk the milk and egg together in a jug. Pour into the dry ingredients and gently fold through, until the mix comes together to form a slightly wet but reasonably firm dough.
3. Turn out onto your work surface and shape into a round loaf. Lightly grease a baking tray and lay the loaf on top of it. Slice a cross in the top of the loaf with a sharp knife. For a glossy finish, brush the loaf with a whisked egg.
4. Bake for 40 mins, or till golden and it sounds a bit hallow when tapped. Cool for 20-30 mins before serving. Gorgeous with a hearty soup.

The bread tasted lovely and it was very easy to make, but it took a lot longer to bake than 40 minutes. Our oven is really good so I can't blame that. I think in total the bread was in for 1hr 5mins so we couldn't eat it with our main meal. The bread itself, however, was really tasty. A tip for blue cheese lovers: I would put more in next time! My boyfriend said it was perfect for him but I'd have preferred a stronger hit.



An inspired recipe - absolutely my favourite from Abel & Cole. Thank you!



Very disappointed - I followed the recipe precisely (even watched the video) but the dough was very soggy and refused to cook through even once the crust was even too crunchy for my Italian husband :( Not sure what could have gone wrong
