Ingredients

  • 500 g all-purpose flour
  • 300 ml water lukewarm
  • 3 tsp active dry yeast
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 150 g raisins brown
  • 75 g cranberries dried
  • 75 g raisins golden
  • 100 g walnuts chopped
  • 1 1/2 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp Cardamom

Instructions

  • Stir the yeast into 300ml lukewarm water and let it rest for about 5minutes until it gets slightly foamy and bubbly on top.
  • Mix 500 grams of flour, salt, chopped walnuts and the soaked raisins until evenly combined and all raisins are covered with flour.
  • Create a well in the middle of the mixing bowl and add the water & yeast mixture to it.
  • Gently mix it all with a spoon or spatula until it turns into a sticky dough.
  • Prepare to add a lot of flour as the soaked raisins will add a lot of moisture to the dough. Knead the dough for about 5 to 10 minutes, adding flour to prevent it from sticking to everything.
  • After kneading the dough for about 5 minutes, you should roll it into a ball shape and place it in the centre of the mixing bowl. Cover it with a damp cloth and place the bowl in a warm spot. I place my dough close to a radiator. Let the dough rise for an hour.
  • After the dough has risen for an hour, you can take the damp cloth off, and you'll notice a significant rise in volume.
  • Dust your workspace generously with flour and knead the dough once more for about 5 minutes. Grab a rolling pin and roll out the dough, so it turns into a flat rectangle about as thick as a thumb. At this point, sprinkle the cinnamon and cardamom evenly over the dough.
  • Take one end of the rectangular dough and now roll-up the dough. Fold the ends of the dough inwards and shape the dough, so it fits the form you have chosen. I use a Dutch-oven to bake the bread, but a baking form for loaves of bread works perfectly fine as well.
  • Grease up your baking form with some coconut oil and shape the dough in a way that it fits your chosen baking form. Place the dough into the form and cover it once more with a damp cloth.
  • Let the dough rise for another 30 minutes.
  • Pre-heat the oven to 230°C (450°F) and bake the bread anywhere between 25-35 minutes depending on how dark you want the bread to be.
