Thread: Simple fruit bread

  1. #1

    Simple fruit bread

    I've been making a lot of it. Used for breakfast toast and tea snack. I'm down to less than 15 minutes to make.

    + 600g flour. (I use what's in. Last batch was 200g strong white, 200g v strong wholemeal, 200g spelt. At least 400g should be strong or v strong)
    + 1.5 teaspoon fast action yeast
    + 1 teaspoon salt
    + 3 tablespoons milk powder
    - mix
    + 200g fruit (raisons, or whatever)
    - mix
    + approx 430ml water
    + 1 or so tablespoons maple syrup
    - mix thoroughly
    - using spatula, divide between 2 1lb silicone bread pans, and smooth out a bit
    - put bread pans on a baking sheet right next to each other, cover with thin silicone baking sheet
    - let sit overnight (will double in size)
    - in the morning, bake at 200C (fan) for 40 minutes, leaving silicone baking sheet on top
    - let cool with silicone baking sheet on top (to keep soft)

    No sticking to bread pan, easy to clean, very little work

    Best wishes,
    Bob

    I might try that in my bread maker - I make a couple of wholemeal seeded bread loaves every week but I am partial to a bit of fruit loaf!

    Iíll give that a go. I recommend trying dried cranberries and cashews with the recipe. My local bakery does a lovely loaf like that and it has quickly become a family favourite through three generations.

    Could the milk powder be substituted with anything? Milk instead of the water + milk powder?

    Sure. Drop the powdered milk to make it dryer. Use 430ml of liquid, any combination of water or milk. Using milk adds a bit of fat, which makes it less crunchy.

    I was going to show it from a different angle as well, but something happened to the sample.
