To prepare the dough: ‎

In a bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder and salt. Leave ‎aside. ‎

In the Masterchef Gourmet stainless steel bowl, whisk together the milk, vegetable oil, honey and ‎‎yeast. ‎

Add the dry ingredients to the liquid ingredients and knead using the kneading hook ‎until the ‎dough is smooth – ‎about 6-8 minutes. You can add some flour if needed. ‎

Cover and leave aside for an hour to rise until doubled in size. ‎

Knead the dough with your hands for a minute and divide into equal-sized balls. ‎

Fill each ball with ½ teaspoon of the cheese mixture. Seal the dough by pulling ‎together the ‎sides. Repeat with the ‎rest of the dough until the quantities are finished. ‎

Arrange the balls close to each other in a baking pan brushed with oil, in order to form ‎a beehive. ‎Avoid leaving gaps ‎between the balls. ‎

When done, cover the pan and leave aside again to rise, around 40 minutes. ‎

Brush the balls with beaten egg and sprinkle with nigella seeds. ‎

Bake the beehive for 20-25 minutes until golden. ‎
