Apple Cranberry Bread
A perfect accompaniment for a holiday dinner or luncheon.
Yield: 1 loaf
Ingredients
  • 3 cups bread flour
  • 1 package (2¼ tsp, ¼oz, 7g) RED STAR Active Dry Yeast
  • ½ cup rolled oats
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 1½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp allspice
  • ½ tsp mace
  • ½ cup water
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup (1 medium apple) - apple, peeled, chopped
  • 1 cup cranberries, fresh, chopped
  • ½ cup pecans, chopped
Instructions
  1. In mixing bowl, combine yeast, 1½ cups flour, rolled oats, brown sugar, salt, allspice and mace; mix well. Heat water and butter to 120-130°F (butter does not need to melt); add to flour mixture. Blend at low speed until moistened; add egg and beat 3 minutes at medium speed. By hand, stir in apples, cranberries and pecans. Gradually stir in enough remaining flour to make soft dough. Knead on floured surface 5 to 8 minutes. Place in greased bowl, turning to grease top. Cover; let rise until dough tests ripe.

  2. Punch down dough. On lightly floured surface, roll or pat into a 14x7-inch rectangle. Starting with shorter side, roll up tightly, pressing dough into roll with each turn. Pinch edges and ends to seal. Place in greased 9x5-inch bread pan. Cover; let rise until an indentation remains when side of loaf is lightly touched. Bake at 350°F for 35 to 45 minutes. Remove from pan; cool on rack.

  3. You can substitute Instant (fast-rising) yeast for Active Dry Yeast. Traditional methods- replace 1:1. Expect your dough to rise faster; always let your dough rise until ‘ripe’. Bread Machines- use ½ tsp Instant yeast (or ¾ tsp Active Dry yeast) per cup of flour in your recipe. Visit our Lessons in Yeast & Baking for more information.
