700gm of flour
1 packet of instant yeast
100gm of sugar ( i use brown sugar)
1 teaspooon of salt
400 ml water
70gm butter / shortening
50 ml milk
150 gm of mix fruits
Step 1: Sieve flour and mix well with the yeast and add in the water. It’s going to be messy and wet and after mixing/kneading it let it rest for about 10 minutes.
Step 2: Add in sugar, salt, egg, butter and milk. Mix them well and let it rest for another 20 minutes.
Step 3: Add in the mix fruits, and by now it should have risen up nicely. Feel free to apply the punch technique.
You can weigh about 50gm and set em on the baking tray, otherwise I just freehand-rustically throw in unevenly on a greased tray.
Let it rest another 15-20 minutes, milk glaze it then bake for 170’c 45 minutes. If the top starts to turn too brown, cover loosely with aluminium foil.
