This month the recipe for the Fresh from the Oven challenge was quite intriguing – mosbolletjies(honestly I have no idea how is this supposed to be read), a.k.a. grape must buns. It was Tandy from Lavender and Lime who stirred our bread baking enthusiasm for new experiments. Tandy makes her own grape must so if looking for a recipe, go to her post. We, however, had grape must in the freezer. Last year during the wine making season we froze some crimson grape must for baking purposes and to use it as a natural colourant.
We made 2 small loaves of bread instead of buns and they turned out extremely delicious. Besides they had a naturally purple hue.
The round-up with everybody's mosbolletjies would be published on Utterly Scrummy Food For Families, so go there to see what the other FFO members have baked.
We are sending this loaves to Yeast Spotting.
Grape Must Loaf Recipe:
For 2 20x10 cm loaf pans
- 20 gr fresh yeast;
- 80 gr grape must;
- 420 gr all purpose flour;
- 8 gr salt;
- 50 gr sugar;
- 60 gr butter, melted;
- 125 gr milk;
- 1 egg.
In a bowl combine together dry ingredients - flour, salt and sugar.
In the bowl of the stand mixer, equipped with dough hook, combine all liquid ingredients – butter, milk, egg and the yeasty must. Add dry ingredients and knead for 15 minutes.
Cover the bowl and let the dough become double in bulk.
Give the dough a quick knead, shape and place the loaves in buttered loaf pans. Leave it to prove.
Bake for about 30 minutes in a preheated to 180ºC oven.
