Mixed Berries Jam & Peanut Butter Bread

I was planning to make bread from last couple of days; finally I am here again with this fascinating and yummy looking striped bread. The strip that makes the bread so colourful and tasty is made with layers of filling of berries jam and peanut butter. A slice of bread has the sweetness of jam and nuttiness of peanut butter.You cannot resist having a single slice of it at a time.




Serve: 4-6
Preparation time:  2 hrs 30 minutes (including rising time)

Ingredients:

Dough
Dry active yeast:           7 grams
Warm milk:                   1/2 cup
Sugar:                           2 tablespoon
Olive oil:                       2 tablespoon
All-purpose flour:          2 cups (I am using multigrain bread flour)
Vanilla extract:              2 teaspoon

Filling
Mixed berries Jam:       2 tablespoon
Peanut butter:               2 tablespoon

Method:
1) Mix the milk, sugar, olive oil and yeast using a whisk.
2) Put the flour in a large bowl and make a well in between. Pour the yeast mixture into the well.
3) Using your hand, bring all the dough together and set it aside for 10 minutes.
4) Bring out the dough on a floured surface and stretch using your palm. Fold it to half and turn around 90 degrees. Repeat the process for 5- 6 times until the dough is elastic but not sticky.
5) Put it in a clean bowl, cover it up with a cling film and let it rise at a warm place for about 1 hour of it doubles in size.
6) After an hour take the dough out and punch it down a little. Divide it in 2 equal parts.
7) Roll it in a rectangle of 12" X 24" inches each.
8) Spread the jam on one sheet and peanut butter on the other. Roll it to make a log. Using a sharp knife cut in half and twist 1/2 jam and 1/2 peanut butter roll together to make two separate rolls. (Refer: picture)


9) Twist both the rolls again to make a large single log. Butter a long loaf tin and put the striped bread log in between. Cover with cling film and put it back on a warm place to rise for 30 minutes.
10) Preheat the oven 180 degree celsius. Bake it bread for about 30- 35 minutes until done and have a hard crust outside.
11) Let it cool for 30 minute before you slice and serve.


BON APPETIT..
