Mix the flour, salt and sugar into a mixing bowl. Stir in the yeast.
Make a well in the centre. Seperately mix the warm water and oil together and then pour into the well.
Bring together with a knife or spoon and then get your hands stuck in to mix into a dough.
On a floured surface knead the bread for around 10 minutes before adding the chopped spring onions and kneading for another minute or so.
Place back in the mixing bowl, cover with a wet warm tea towel and leave to prove for 1-2 hours.
When the dough has doubled in size, take out and split into 3 equal pieces. Roll and stretch them into long ‘sausages’ and check they are the correct length to fill the Omnia.
Join the 3 pieces together at one end and pinch together. Sprinkle all 3 pieces with half of the grated cheese, sprinkle over the side also so it gets into the plait.
Plait the bread by pulling the right strand over the middle one, then the left one over the middle one. Repeat until the loaf is plaited and then pinch the other ends tight together. (There are tutorials on YouTube if you get stuck)
Put the omnia silicone insert into the Omnia oven or make sure it’s well greased, we grease the silicone mold slightly too.
Leave in the Omnia to prove for another 30-60 minutes
When risen, sprinkle over the remaining cheese and finely chopped chives.
Place over a medium flame for 40 mins.
