That book is Scandilicious by Signe Johansen
This is not an author that I have seen before but after flicking through the first couple of recipes I was drawn straight in and my baking plans started!
One of the breads that hubby had pointed out was a Muesli Bread.
When I looked at the ingredients there were quite a few that I didn't have, but I knew that I could change a couple of ingredients and add a few which would make a delicious breakfast loaf.
This is what I got...
150mls double cream
450g strong white bread flour
25g rye flour
25g desiccated coconut
2tbsp golden syrup
250mls warm water
6 soft apricots, chopped
4 dates, chopped
20g goji berries
75g dried mixed fruit with candied peel
1 - Soak the muesli in the cream.
2 - Place the flour, rye flour, desiccated coconut, cinnamon, nutmeg and golden syrup into a bowl.
3 - Add the salt to one side of he bowl and the yeast on the other.
4 - Add the muesli and cream, warm water and mix. I used my mixer with the dough hook. As the dough comes together if you need a extra water add some a teaspoon at a time until all of the flour has been gathered up off the side of the bowl.
5 - Leave to mix for about 10 minutes until the dough has an elasticity feel.
6 - Place the dough in a lightly oiled bowl, cover and leave to prove for about 90 minutes or until doubled in size.
7 - Once the dough has proved knock any air out of it and flatten it out.
8 - Scatter over the fruits and knead in to mix evenly.
9 - Re shape the loaf, place on a baking tray, cover over and leave to prove until doubled in size again. While the dough is proving pre heat the oven to 200C.
10 - Mix the honey with the beaten egg and brush over the loaf before putting in the oven and sprinkle over a handful of muesli oats.
11 - Place in the oven and bake for about 20 - 30 minutes.
This bread is delicious when served warm with butter. A perfect breakfast loaf.
