We made raisin bread! OK, sultana bread, but I have no idea what the difference is and googling is just making things more confusing as everyone thinks differently.
I used this Mortgage Free in Three recipe but with some tweaks:
- 500g plain flour
- 220ml water
- 30ml milk
- 1 1/2tsp dried yeast
- 1tbsp sunflower oil
- 1tsp nutmeg
- 1tsp cinnamon
- 1tsp salt
- 40g sugar
- 100g sultanas
First off, I weighed out the sultanas and poured 220ml of water from the kettle on them, so that they could plump up before making the dough. I left this to cool until it was hand-hot, rather than scalding hot.
Next I weighed and roughly mixed together the dry ingredients.
I then mixed in the oil, the milk, and the water I drained off the soaking sultanas, using a spatula to stir it all through before starting to bring it all together with my hands. I added the sultanas and then started to knead.
After kneading for five minutes, I put it to one side to rise for a couple of hours, until it was doubled in size and then knocked it back before putting it in a loaf tin and leaving to rise again.
I then put it in the oven for 40 mins at 180 (whilst I was cooking something else, of course).
It’s delicious toasted!
