ORANGE TUTTI FRUTTI BREAD


This tutti frutti bread is perfect for breakfast.... flavoured with orange juice and zest. The flavours are well balanced and not too sweet. It is also very easy to make. Here goes the recipe.

Ingredients:
All purpose flour ... 2 cups + 1/4 cup for dusting
Sugar ...............  2 tbsps + 1 tsp for yeast
Salt ................  1 tsp
Egg ............... 1 (optional )
Yeast ............ 1 tsp
Orange ......... 1 ( zest and juice of half orange will be required)
Tutti Frutti ... 1/4 cup or more if you like.
Candied orange .. 1 slice chopped into pieces. (optional)
Clarified butter for greasing the tin. 
(you can use butter too but this works better as the water content is not there )

Method:

Take half cup warm water and add sugar to it. Sprinkle yeast on top and leave it in a warm place until it becomes frothy.






Extract juice of orange and grate the zest. We will use as needed.







In a large bowl take the flour. Make a well and add the egg. Sprinkle the salt and sugar on the sides.






Mix gently adding the yeast and later the zest and juice of orange as needed to make a soft dough.







Remove the dough on a floured surface and knead it well using the palm of your hand and knocking it. (8 -10 mins )






This step is very important to get a nice fluffy bread.








Put the dough in a greased bowl.







 Cover it and place it in a warm place to rise until double.








Take the risen dough on a floured surface and flatten it.







 Spread the tutti frutti and candied orange pieces.







Roll it and knead it gently so that the pieces are well distributed.







Make a roll and put it in 8" by 4" greased loaf tin. Brush with egg white or milk.



Leave it to rise again until double. It takes about 2 hours. Winter it takes longer.




Pre-heat the oven to 200 C (400 F) and bake it until done. It Takes about 30 - 35  minutes. The time may vary a little according to the size and type of oven you are using. So keep an eye.






Remove it and let it cool before slicing.
