One of my favourites Starbucks breakfast is fruit bread, it has been for years. I thought it was about time that I tried to make one myself instead of relying on a trip to town to get some. I found this recipe online from Anna in the Kitchen and I decided to adapt it to my tastebud (especially because I am trying to cut refined sugar from my daily food intake). Here is the recipe that worked for me!
- 40 g of currents
- 40g of Sultanas
- 40g of raisins
- 40g of dried cherries
- 2 tablespoons of water
- 200 ml of milk
- 1 egg
- 50g of organic coconut sugar
- 450g strong bread flour
- 1 tablespoon salt
- 1 sachet of fast action yeast
- 50g of baking butter
- Put all the dried fruits in a bowl with the two tablespoons of water and microwave for 1 minute.
- In a separate bowl, mix the milk, egg and coconut sugar.
- In a large bowl, add the flour, salt and yeast and mix. Then add the baking butter to the dry mix. When the butter is blended in the flour mix properly, add the content of the other bowl and mix it all together. Put the dough on a floured surface and knead until well combined.
- Drain the water from the bowl containing the dry fruits, pat almost dry the fruits and mix it in the dough.
- Then put the dough in a large silicon tray. Flatten the dough as much as possible and cook it in the oven for around 30 min at 190 degrees celcius. Let it cool down for few minutes before eating. Save in a bread bin for up to a week then toast a slice or two with some salted butter and jam.
It is really yummy, rather easy to make and allow me to have my favourite Starbucks treat at home for breakfast anytime I fancy it!
have a good week,
