Plaited Sourdough Raisin Loaf, Yum!
Yay, schools back 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻.
Ahhhh the simple luxury of eating breakfast in peace, no can I have a bite of that, can you make me one too, and to finally be able to take a photo of it too…😅😜🤣.
I do enjoy my weekends indulgence of waffles, pancakes and big breakfast for brekkie, but that doesn’t mean I miss out during the weekdays.
I just loooove eating my sourdough, making all different versions, and just playing with the dough, like this plaited sourdough raisin loaf.
Simply To Make
If you like baking your own sourdough like me, then it’s very easy to put this beautiful plaited sourdough raisin loaf together.
Simply make your sourdough bread how you normally would or you can follow my no knead sourdough recipe here 👇🏻
You’ll also need:
- 1/2 cup vegan butter
- 1 Cup of brown sugar
- 1 Tbsp grounded cinnamon
- 1 zest of an orange
- 1 cup of raisins
Divide the pre shaped sourdough for one loaf into three equal parts.
Then roll each dough out into a rectangle piece, slather with butter, sprinkle with brown sugar, cinnamon, orange zest and a generous amount of raisins.
Roll the dough up from the bottom up, like you would a cinnamon scroll, and repeat for the remainder the two doughs, until you have 3 equal portions of logs.
To plait simply, lay the 3 portions vertically next to each other, left, middle, and right.
Then cross the right piece over the middle piece.
Next, cross the left piece over the middle piece, then over left.
Repeat process, alternating the right and left sections over the middle, until you’ve exhausted all dough.
Finally pinch the ends tightly and tuck the end underneath the loaf to close off any loose ends and lay on a baking tray flat for resting.
Rest plaited sourdough raisin loaf for one hour before, putting it in the fridge over night for final proofing.
Bake next day, in preheated oven for 40 minutes or until golden brown on 240c or 465f 👌🏻.
Now to enjoy this plaited sourdough raisin loaf I baked, thickly cut, and slathered with loads of butter 🤤🤤🤤.
So soft, glutenous, delicious chewiness, with that crispy, crunchy crust.
Not to forget that pop of sweet raisin, and a tiny hint of orange zest.
Deliciousness I always have handy in the freezer, and it’s a matter of popping it in the toaster and I’m ready to start my day, after I’ve stopped admiring the loaf 😍😍😍.
Think I might add some chocolate pieces for next time.
Overall super happy with the result 😋.
