Hazel nut fruit loaf
This is an encore of the bread I made 2 days ago. It tasted so good that I couldn't get enough of it. The first 2 loaves were made with 40% Shipton mills whole-wheat flour which has been sitting in my freezer. This was made into a preferment. The rest of the flour was made with AP flour. This time round, only 25% of the Shipton WW was used. I hope to have a lighter loaf with less WW. The fruit and nut was around 30% of the total flour weight. I had to restrain myself this time round as I had been too greedy in my first bake. As a result, I had a case of fruit overload.
The fruits consisted of candied orange peel, currents, sultanas and cherries. The nuts were freshly toasted hazelnuts which is my favorite. I avoid chelory made from colored papaya. I think this is a monstrosity.
It has been a fruitful day off for me and I finally got down to tesingt out a theory involving the making of kaya, another sinful favorite of mine. I really have to be more careful with all these calorie and fat laden favorites of mine.
