This weeks challenge was Cranberry Walnut Celebration Bread. I was really pleased with how it turned out. I got a nice window from the dough. I then mixed the craisins and walnuts in. I did toast the walnuts before I added them to the dough to help cut some of the bitterness that walnuts can give off.
I let the dough proof then divided the dough into 3 larger ropes and 3 smaller ropes. I rolled them out into logs.
I took the large ropes and did a 3 braid then I did the same to the smaller ropes and placed the small braid on top of the larger braid. I egg washed it and let it proof.
Once it had proofed I baked it in the oven and I checked for doneness by checking the internal temperature.
I really like how the double braided loaf looks. Thank you to Chris from http://www.akuindeed.com/ for hosting our challenges.
