Preparation steps

1.

Peel and chop the onion. Heat oil in a pan and saute the onion until translucent. Rinse the herbs, shake dry and chop coarsely. Add the chopped herbs to the pan and cook briefly. Remove from heat and leave the mixture to cool. Cut the bacon into small cubes and set aside 1 tablespoon of it for sprinkling. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. 

2.

Mix the flour with the baking powder and the salt. Add 80 ml (approximately ½ cup) of water, milk, bacon, two-thirds of the cheese and the herb-onion mixture. Knead quickly with the dough hook of the hand mixer into a dough. If the dough is too dry, add some water. Shape the dough into an oblong loaf, place on the baking sheet and brush the loaf with cream.

3.

Sprinkle the loaf with the reserved bacon and the remaining cheese. Bake in a preheated oven at 200°C (fan: 180°C, gas mark 3) (approximately 400°F) for 50 to 60 minutes. If the bread is browning too quickly, cover loosely with aluminum foil. Remove bread from the oven and let cool on a wire rack before serving.
