Enriched raisin bread (Wed 26.05).

Enriched raisin bread. More spices, eggs, butter and raisins compared to previous ones. Takes somewhat longer to rise due to the added butter.


  • 500 g white bread flour
  • ground pepper (large pinch)
  • grated nutmeg (large pinch)
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons cane sugar
  • 200 g milk
  • 20 g fresh yeast
  • 2 small eggs
  • 40-50 g butter
  • 200 g raisins

1. Mix the flour, spices, sugar and salt in a bowl.

Make a well in the centre, pour in the milk. Crumble the yeast in the milk.

Mix the yeast and milk to a batter with some of the flour.

Add the 2 eggs to the mixture,.

Mix everything to a not too sticky dough. Turn out and knead to a smooth ball  (+- 3 minutes).

Knead the diced butter into the dough piece by piece (takes also some minutes).

Add the raisins to the dough.
Return to an oiled bowl,

Leave to rise for 1 hour.

2. Turn the dough out on a floured surface.

Form into a loaf and put in a greased baking tin (should be filled by 2/3).

Leave to rise for 1 hour or until doubled in size.

3. Bake in a preheated oven at 190-200 C for about 30 minutes.
Leave to cool on a wire rack.

Glazed the loaf with milk before baking. As a result bread was glued to the tin, some difficulties to get it out.
