Question of the week

This weeks question comes from Carol from South Wales

Carol asks:

Hi, I am making your fruit bread, (your Bread book recipe),  it is hard to get the even-ness of the fruit, some slices have only small amount of fruit other slices are a lot more fruit in it. Thanks Carol


Paul says:

Hi Carol, If you are having problems adding the fruit when making the dough you can try adding the fruit after the first prove. Tip the dough onto a floured surface and push into a large rectangle. Scatter the fruit over the surface then fold the dough onto itself. Repeat the folding a few times then shape into the desired loaf  shape and you should have an even distribution of fruit throughout the bread. I hope that helps. Happy Baking!
