  3. Lightly beat together the milk, egg and olive oil. Pour into the dry ingredients and stir together.
  4. Divide the mixture between the mini loaf tins and place them on a baking tray. Sprinkle the reserved cheese over the top.
  5. Bake the loaves in the centre ofthe oven for 20-25 mins, or until they have risen and are an even, golden colour.
  6. Remove the loaves from the oven and leave them to cool in the tins for a few minutes, then transfer them to a wire rack. Serve the loaves warm or cold.
The loaves may be packed in a freezer bag and frozen for up to 3 months. Allow to defrost and refresh them in a hot oven for a few minutes before serving.
