Ok I know what you are thinking, what kind of foodie would use a brown bread mix. Well this is amazing, I have made this discovery this weekend and I couldn't get enough of what I had made. So then on Saturday I had a about 200 ml of chardonnay left, I had enough so decided to macerate 200g of raisins in the chardonnay. The following morning the raisins had doubled in size having taken on the chardonnay. Bear with me on the following recipe its gorgeous, its most beautifully moist brown bread I have ever made.
500g of Odlums Brown Bread mix
350ml of Milk
2 Tbsp of Brown Caster sugar
200g of Macerated raisins
Remaining chardonnay from the macerated raisins
1) Preheat an oven to 200c and line a loaf tin
2)Mix the bread mix with the milk, raisins, sugar and remaining chardonnay into a dough. (maybe slightly sticky)
3) Flour a surface and knead the bread for 3-4 mins
4) Bake for 45 mins
5) Remove from the oven and remove tin cooling on a wire rack
6) Now cut yourself a slice still warm and slather the bread with butter, heavenly!
