Cook Time 45 mins
Total Time 45 mins
Servings 2 loaves

Ingredients
 

  • 350 g Anita's Unbleached White Flour
  • 150 g Anita’s Rye Flour
  • 10 g Sea salt
  • 10 g Fresh yeast (or 5 g traditional dry yeast)
  • 340 ml Water (lukewarm)
  • 80 g Cranberries
  • 60 g Pecans (slightly toasted)
  • Zest of 2 Lemons

Instructions
 

  • In a large bowl mix together the flours, salt, yeast and water. Knead for approx. 8-10 mins either by hand or in a mixer, until the dough is clean, smooth and elastic.
  • In a separate bowl or container mix together the cranberries, pecans and lemon zest. Add them to the dough and work them in gently, until just mixed.
  • Shape the dough into a round, dust lightly with flour and loosely cover with plastic wrap, to prevent the dough from drying out. Allow the dough to rise at room temp for around 45-60 mins, until it has reached double volume.
  • Once risen, either split the dough in half for 2 smaller loaves or prepare one large loaf. Re-shape the dough one more time nice and round, stretching the dough over to create a nice, tight surface and round shape.
  • Place the dough on a baking sheet, dust the top with a little flour and allow the dough to rise again to double the volume in a warm place.
  • Slash the dough with a small knife and place the loaves in a preheated oven (400˚F) and bake for approx. 35-45 mins until golden brown and a good crust has developed.
