Waiter, there's something in my...Dried Fruits And Nuts
Andy of SpittoonExtra 03.11.2019 ** chose dried fruit and nuts for the 14 th edition of „Waiter there’s something in my…“ The first thought reading nuts and dried fruit was: müesli. The „e“ after the umlaut is important in Swiss-German, without it means „little mouse“. I am a passionate bread baker, so I partake this round with

  1. DAY 1 SCALDING: Put the flour in a mixing bowl. Pour the boiling water over the flour and stir until you have a smooth porridge-like mixture. Cover with cling-film and leave at room temperature for 24 hours.
  2. DAY 2: Soak the raisins in plenty of cold water for 30 minutes and drain in a sieve. Preheat the oven to 200°C. Toast the sunflower and pumpkin seeds until golden brown. Cool.
    Put the scalded flour mixture in the mixing bowl. Weigh flour, butter, honey and the yeast/milk mixture. °° Knead the dough for 13 minutes on the lowest speed. Add salt and knead on a slightly higher speed for another 7 minutes. Test for elasticity.

    Work in the raisins, sunflower and pumpkin seeds and walnuts.
    Place the dough in a lightly oiled lidded plastic container an leave for 60 minutes, knock back the dough once during rising.
    Turn out on a floured work surface and divide it in two. Shape two long rolls and cut each up into six pieces. Butter two 2-l baking tins, shape the dough pieces into oblong rolls and place them side by side in the tins. Glaze lightly with water and sprinkle with oatmeal.

    Cover with a tea-towel and put the tins in the unheated oven. Leave to rise until doubled in size. Remove the bread from the oven.

    Preheat the oven to 250°C. Return the bread to the oven and spray them generously with water.

    Lower the heat to 180°C after 5 minutes.

    Bake for approx. 40 minutes. Use a thermometer to check if the bread is ready (98°C).

    Take out the loaves, remove the tins and put the bread back in the oven for another 5 minutes for an even crust all round.

Suitable for freezing and good for toasting.

    Es ist schon lustig, genau dieses Buch liegt momentan ganz oben auf meinem ToDo-Bücherstapel. Nachdem dieses Brot so appetitlich aussieht, werde ich das Buch heute noch in Augenschein nehmen.
