Eggless Cheese Stuffed Tofu Bread

Do you know i get tofu easily than Paneer, i have to travel atleast 30 minutes to get a pack of paneer. But just by going a walk i can grab a packet of tofu as am living in Chinatown. Obviously i do cook more often with tofu than paneer. Its been a while i baked a bread with silken tofu, yes tofu replaces eggs very well in bread or in cakes. Silken tofu gives a wonderful texture and softness to bread. Either your bread is yeasted or simple flatbread, do try to add some tofu, trust me your bread will be super soft than you can imagine. Whenever i feel like having soft flatbreads, i dont forget to add pureed tofu to my flatbread dough. One of the best way to sneak tofu is definitely adding them this way in most of our dishes just to feed picky eaters at home.

Tofu Cheese Bread, Cheese Stuffed Tofu Bread

Am running this week's blogging marathon is 'Secret Ingredient' as theme, obviously since i used Tofu as secret ingredient for making this cheese stuffed tofu bread, i couldnt stop myself to post for this theme. Adding tofu brings super softness to this simple bread. Stuffed with cheese, this bread makes an excellent evening snacks or to serve along with some chunky sauce for a meal. We just loved munching this soft bread once it came out of the oven. Trust me, this bread vanished very much quickly. If you are planning to bake this bread, make them in big batch else you will definitely regret later.

Take a bundt pan or a round pan, greased it. Punch down the dough, divide them into 7-8 balls.

Flat each ball and drop enough cream cheese, bring the edges together and roll them well.

Drop them to the already prepared round pan. Keep in warm place for half an hour.

The bread looks super super soft. I know tofu is added to cakes to replace the egg but never thought of adding to bread. Whenever I am Montreal, for me too its easier to get tofu, all kinds than paneer.
