Fruit Bread

I am back with another healthy and tasty Bread called Fruit bread. As the name suggest, the bread baked with Dry fruits. The original recipe source from here

For the first time, I used Malthouse Bread Flour. Its combination of wheat, Rye and Malt flours with flaked malted grains for a wholesome crunchy texture.

If you don’t find Malthouse Bread Flour, you may substitute with Whole Wheat or All Purpose Flour. 

Though the bread has got a very crispy crust but it’s very soft.  I pretty much liked is its texture and it’s Orange Flavor. 

Ingredients:   2 cups of malt flour   ;     1/4 cup of sugar      ;    25 gms of soft butter          ;       1 orange zest and  &  juice  ;     1 egg (beaten)   ;     1/2 tsp of instant yeast   ;     1/4 tsp cinnamon powder       ;        1 tbsp of honey      ;  1/2 cup of Lukewarm water      ;       100gms of mixed dried fruits.

Procedure :  Mix together the dried fruits, orange zest and set aside. 

Mix sugar,  yeast, cinnamon powder, honey and lukewarm water and kept aside for five minutes. 

Add Flour to the yeast mixture and mix well to form dough. Add egg, butter, dry fruit mixture and orange juice and combine well. 

Cover the dough with damp cloth and leave in a warm place for 2 hours. Deflate the dough and make loaf or braided and allow it for second rise, for about an hour.

Transfer the loaf into a pre - heated oven and bake it for 45 minutes at 180°c. Allow to cool and slice to desire thickness.

Fruit bread can be consumed with Cream cheese / Olive oil dip / Butter. Soft bread with dry fruits and orange flavor…..imm…….. it’s Divine.
