Cranberry/Apricot bread (French Bread w/ mix ins)
      09/19/04 04:21 PM

One good thing that came of my time at the North Shore in MA was this amazing bread place.

I discovered their breads and ever since I wanted to try making my own.

So I invented Cranberry/Apricot bread.

Begin with Heather's Baguette recipe:
1 tsp yeast
1 tsp sugar
1 1/2 c warm water
4 c white flour
2 tsp salt
1/4 c chopped dried apricots
1/2 c chopped dried cranberries
1/8 c white chocolate chips (optional)

Soak cranberries and apricots in warm water for 10-15 minutes...

Sprinkle yeast and sugar over 1 1/2 cups warm water. Let stand 5 mins. Stir in 2 cups flour until combined. Add salt and another 2 cups flour until stiff dough forms.

After you have made the dough, before you start kneading, begin adding in dried cranberries and apricot pieces and white chocolate chips (if using). I only used about 1/8 cup for the whole loaf so per slice you probably get the amount of chocolate in 1/2 a hershey kiss.

Place dough in oiled bowl covered with plastic wrap and a kitchen towel. Let rise in a warm draft free spot until doubled-- approx. 1.5 hours.

Preheat oven to 400 F. Punch down dough and form loaf. Place loaf on lightly greased cookie sheet. Let rise for 30 mins uncovered about 30 mins.

Make 3 diagonal slashes in loaf with knife. Mist loaf with water. Bake loaf in center of oven for 30 mins or until golden brown.

Cool on rack.

Mine's cooling now!

Edit: You may want to add 2 T sugar to the dough. Mine isn't quite sweet enough for my taste.
