Over the weekend I made a loaf of Harvest Bread – recipe is on the King Arthur Flour website which looked like this after being mixed up and then it had to sit out on the counter overnight to rise a bit.
It has raisins and cranberries and walnuts in it. The recipe called for pecans – but I was out of them, and yellow raisins which I can’t get so plain old raisins were used.
The only thing I would change is cut down on the amount of raisins, cranberries and nuts in it. Even tho I baked it until it got to the internal temp called for in the recipe, it could maybe have gone a bit longer due to the denseness of all those goodies inside. But that would have made it too brown on the outside.
So next time I’ll probably use half the amounts of goodies that go into it and it should be perfect. I had some fresh while it was still warm but I think I need to go toast a slice and test it out with my dinner.
Looks delicious. Needs butter.
Thanks. It is delicious and when it was warm from the oven it needed no butter.
This is the best recipe that I’ve gotten from your blog regarding bread making. I loved this one so much that it’s all I want to make! Your other recommendations are good too, but I love nuts and some fruit in mine for toasting.
I tested it in the toaster last night and it was scrumptious!
