1/2 cup Honeyville Freeze Dried Apricots
1/2 cup Golden Raisins
1/2 cup Tart Cherries
1 cup Orange Juice
1 1/2 cups Hot Water
1 1/2 cups Warm Milk
1 Egg Yolk
1/2 cup Butter, melted
1/2 cup Sugar
1 Tbsp Salt
3 Tbsp SAF Yeast
10-12 cups Honeyville Alta Artisan Bread Flour
1 cup Pine Nuts
Yields: 2 loafs
First, soak your fruit.
To do this, combine apricots, raisins, and cherries in a bowl and pour orange juice over the top. Let your fruit soak for 15-20 minutes, then drain excess liquid.
In your BOSCH Universal Mixer, combine the following ingredients in this order: water, milk, eggs, egg yolk, butter, sugar, salt, 4 cups flour, and yeast. Turn mixer to #2 setting and add remaining flour 1 cup at a time until dough pulls away from the sides of the bowl, Once dough begins to pull away, add fruit and pine nuts and knead in machine for 3-4 minutes.
Remove dough, place in a greased bowl, cover, and allow to rise for 30-40 minutes.
One risen, punch down and remove.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Divide dough in half.
Shape each dough into a small ball.
Taking an empty, rinsed out, and greased #10 can, place dough ball in can.
Allow to rise for 30-40 minutes.
Place in 400 degree preheated oven, knock temperature down to 375 degrees, and bake for 30-35 minutes.
Remove and allow to cool, in can, on a wire rack for 15-20 minutes. While bread is cooling, brush top with melted butter and sprinkle on sugar. Once cooled, remove from can, slice and serve.
This is the type of Holiday bread you’ll want for years to come! The sweet taste of the fruit, combined with the rich taste of the pine nuts, gives this bread an added level of flavor and texture. Best of all, this bread looks absolutely amazing right out of the oven. I mean, how often do you see a bread loaf baked in a can?!
