Hi Fellow Bread Bakers, I recently read an article in Toronto Life magazine (I'm from Toronto, Canada) and it concerned a type of bread that was available in South Africa during the apartheid years. It was called "Government Brown" and the article described it as a kind of whole bread with the addition of nuts and dried fruit- prunes, raisins, figs, apricots, apples, mangos, dates, pineapple, blueberries, cherries, cranberries, etc. It was produced by the government hence its name. The article did have a recipe, I tried making it and it SUCKED. However, I would like to try again and wazza wonderin, hopin' n' prayin' that someone out there might have heard of this bread and provide a recipe with explanation of method to get improved results. A favourite way to eat it "back home" was to scoop out some of the interior and fill it with a curried meat mixture. Best consumed with a bottle of Coca Cola! That would keep you going all day, in more ways than one... So, fellow bread bakers, I wanna see the replies just rolling in. Thank you in advance for responding to this grave matter.
