Cranberry-orange Bread
« on: May 31, 2009, 01:14:25 am »
My local grocery store sells this FABULOUS cranberry-orange bread, and I was hoping to make my own. Unfortunately, all the recipes I could find were more like a cake than a bread, so I had to improvise.

I started with a raisin bread recipe published on a French Blog which originally came from the French Thermomix book "Mille et une pātes...ą pain".

Chookie has suggested increasing the water to 230g and the yeast to 10g .

Preparation time : 15 min + Thermomix : 4 min + Rise : 30 min + Oven cooking : 30 min

Total time : 1 h 19 min

200g           Water
1 packet      Baker's yeast
400g           White Flour
50g             Sugar
1/2 tea sp    Salt
1                Peel of 1 orange, grated
125g           Dried Cranberries

Grate the peel off of one big orange with a box cheese grater, using coarser blade. Make sure you only grate the orange skin, and not the white part as it is too bitter. Reserve.

Put the water and yeast in the bowl, and set 2 min / 37° / speed 3.

Add all the other ingredients except the orange and the cranberries. Set 2 min at Dough/Knead  ::

Add the orange peel and the cranberries, and mix 20 sec / reverse / speed 4.

Form the dough into a roll, and place in a floured pan. Slightly push in cranberries with a knife so they don't burn when cooking.

Put in oven 30 minutes at 60° C to raise the dough.

Cook in oven 30 minutes at 200° C

For the original Raisin Bread recipe, replace the orange peel and the cranberries by 150 g of raisins. But trust me, the Cran-orange bread is the best fruit bread you'll ever have  ;)

Yummo Mr Spock! I love fruit breads. How much would 1 packet of yeast be? Teaspoon measure or grams is ok for me if you are able to help  ;)

I know this is an old thread but I made this bread this week and have to recommend it.

Adjustments:
zest 1/2 orange
150g mixed fruit to replace cranberries
long rise (1.5 hours)

Really nice crumb and sliced well.

Looks great,  could add a little more water and yeast.  The dried fruit absorbs some of the water and the sugar in the fruit retards the yeast a bit.  I have been reading Dan Lepard's new book Short and Sweet.

Is the book worth getting Chookie?

Cookie,  very good value if you are interested in bread making. Also the section on cakes has some very different recipes,  also there is a section on biscuits that I still have to have a good look at.  It has been designed to stay open at the recipe you are making.   The only thing i don't  like is the color of the cover,  but I can live with this.  $34 from Book Depository,  on charge for Postage.  Made an adaption of the Tapanade bread rolls tonight.

Only have 80gr cranberry, but still nice.  MIL loves this, made another loaf for her to take home.
