Hi everybody, a bit of a novice (and young/male!) baker here and I hade a few ideas that I was wondering if some of the experts here could help me out on.
There is a few criteria for this though:
1: Has to be a viable breakfast food (just a pet peeve: I like to eat my sweeter breads for a second breakfast after morning swim practice, just pretending to be French I guess! :)
2: Has to be based off of http://store.secondnaturesnacks.com/xcart/product.php?productid=16133&cat=250&page=1 Second Nature's Wholefoods Snack Medley</a> (Just another unrealistic goal a teenage boy sets for himself!)
Okay so here is my idea if anybody wants to help:
I wanted to base this off a milk bread in order to incorporate some ingredients here.
Soak <strong>1/4 cup Almonds</strong> and <strong>1/8 cup Cashews</strong> and <strong> 1/8 cup peanuts> overnight
The next day blend the soaked nuts with <strong>4 cups of water</strong> and <strong>1 teaspoon of vanilla extract</strong>
Press the mix through a strainer and reserve the pulp for something else
Portuguese Sweet Bread and Rolls
White AP flour 857g
Eggs 2 eggs
Water, warm 113g
Nut Milk, warm 409g
Butter, softened 97g
Brown Sugar 30g
1. Mix all of the ingredients together with a dough hook on speed 1 for three (3) minute, then speed 2 for three (3) more minutes. Dough should clean sides of bowl.
2. Set aside in a covered bowl for 90 minutes; fold at 45 minutes.
3. Roll out into a rectangle 8 x 15 inches and coat with an egg glaze (1 egg beaten with a tablespoon of the milk mixture) Press the Dark Chocolate Chunks, Cherries, and Cranberries into the dough. Roll the whole thing into a log, cut into nine pieces, flatten the rolls out and brush with some more egg glaze
4. Allow to rise until puffy (I am thinking around 45 minutes) Bake at 350 [deg. F.] for 25 minutes .
Hope you guys can help! Please criticize!
Sorry for the bad formatting all, but its getting late
