Today Rose's Alpha Bakers share our 10th selection as we bake our way through The Baking Bible. As a reminder, the recipes made during this project are not being shared, but I will share my commentary about each recipe, followed by a full photo tutorial. NOTE: a variation of this recipe has been published here.
This week's selection - Swedish Apricot Walnut Bread. My intended taste testers for this bread included a person who is allergic to nuts so I omitted them.
How does it taste - Better than expected, especially when paired with a very ripe triple creme brie.
How does it look - As a whole loaf, it's nothing to write home about, however, when sliced, this bread's stunning beauty is revealed.
Level of difficulty - Intermediate.
Were the directions clear - Yes.
What would I do differently next time - Soak the dried fruit to plump them a bit, and I think the bread would look lovely if you replaced some of the golden raisins with dark raisins or dried cranberries.
Next up - Golden Orange Panettone, February 9, 2015.
Okay, here's my photo tutorial. Disclamer - this recipe was photographed over the course of two days, at all different times of the day - please forgive the horrid nighttime pics.
