A Monday meme. Handmade with love, kneaded with strength, baked from the heat of the Earth. A part of each day. Every week I will post a photo of one our doughy creations. From seven-grain loaves to tortillas to hot cross buns to chapati to french bread sticks. If you’reinspired to post a photo of your homemade bread and recipes just leave a comment and link below for everyone to awe and marvel at. You’re also welcome to use the sidebar button if you’d like to.
I've really become attached to raisin bread for breakfast as of late. So much so that I decided to get serious with the recipe and play around with it in order to make the perfect mouth-watering loaf. Here's what I've come up with:
Ingredients1 cup wholemeal flour
1 cup white flour
1 packet of yeast (7g)
1/8 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
pinch of salt
30 g butter
140 mL warm milk
1 egg, lightly beaten
3/4 cup raisins
Mix the all dry ingredients and raisins together in a bowl. Melt the butter in a saucepan and then add the milk to the saucepan to warm it up. Add the milk, melted butter and egg to the dry ingredients and knead on a floured surface for around 5 minutes until the dough is smooth and elastic. Place in a bowl and cover with a warm, wet cloth and place somwhere warm for at least 2 hours until the dough has doubled in size. Then, remove the dough from the bowl, knead again and form into either a round loaf or place in a greased/lined bread tin to bake. Bake at 190˚C for 20-30 minutes depending on the thickness and shape of the loaf (longer for a rectangular tin and shorter for a round loaf).
Serve with butter or almond butter. Divine!
