Fusion Bread

Time to refill my pantry jars, I have been deferring to do so for the past one week due to various reasons. I wanted to bake fresh bread for weekend breakfast but, very limited supplies………..Hmm…what about fusion bread?

Just, add whatever you left with and bake. Not bad at all…… a very pretty, soft and tasty loaf.

Ingredient   -    1/2 cup of oats       ;      1 cup of all purpose flour       ;    1/2 cup whole wheat flour      ;       1/4 cup of flax seed powder         ;      3/4 cup of crushed weetabrix      ;     1 cup of milk       ;      1 /4 cup of water        ;    1 tbsp of instant yeast        ;       1/4 cup of honey        ;        1 /8 cup of melted butter     ;       1/2 tbsp of salt   

 Procedure : cook the oats and keep aside let it cool.  In a mixing bowl add warm milk, honey and yeast mix well. Add salt, melted butter, oats, flax seed powder, weetabrix, whole wheat flour and mix with hand. Add all purpose flour little by little and knead until it is smooth and elastic dough but, not sticky.

Shape it into a ball and place it in an oiled bowl and cover with damp cloth for about 1 1/2 hours or 2 hours or till it become double in volume. Gently deflate the dough and shape the dough into a greased loaf tin and cover the loaf with damp cloth for about an hour or it raise almost at the edges of your loaf tin. Sprinkle the chopped almond & walnuts on the top.(its an option)

Transfer the loaf into 180°C pre-heated oven and bake for about 40 - 50 minutes or till the bread is nice brown on top and sounds hollow when tapped. 

Hot loaf with kefir spread in a cold morning………’s divine!
