  • Barrett's Ridge Beer Bread Mix


  • 1 Bag Barrett’s Ridge Beer Bread mix (for this recipe we used Olive & Rosemary)
  • 2 cups double-thick plain yoghurt 
  • 30 g cold butter, cubed
  • 1/2 Bottle The Larder Plum, Chilli & Ginger Ketchup.
  • 2 Tbsp Feta
  • 2 TBS melted butter



Preheat oven to190°C


Pace all the Beer Bread mix in a bowl and rub in the butter using your fingertips.


Once the mixture resembles breadcrumbs, gradually cut in the yoghurt using a butter knife until the dough starts to come together.


Turn out the dough onto a lightly floured surface and gently kneed until smooth.


Roll the dough out into a 40 x 60 cm rectangle.


Spread The Larder Ketchup over the surface of the dough.


Then sprinkle with crumbed feta.


Starting with a long side, roll up the dough into a tight sausage. Using a sharp knife, cut the sausage of dough in half lengthwise, leaving a small section (approximately 14 cms long) intact at one end.


Turn the halves carefully so the filling is exposed. Cross the dough halves over each other until you have a long, twisted piece of dough.


Cross one end of the twist over the other, and tuck the ends under, forming a knot. Transfer to your prepared baking sheet.


Brush the dough with melted butter.


Bake for 35-45 minutes, until golden brown and baked throughout.


Tent with foil in the last 10 minutes if necessary. 


Decorate with a ribbon and some sage leaves
