Breakfast Orange Bread


Main dough:

⅓ cup milk
1 tsp dry yeast
1½ TBSP sugar

Whisk together, and microwave for 15 seconds. Let it sit for a few minutes until the yeast starts working. This is a good time to create the filling.

Add:

1½ teaspoon olive oil,
⅓ tsp salt
1 cup white flour

Mix quickly together with fingers or a wooden spoon. This is to take seconds, not minutes.

Filling:
3 slices of dehydrated oranges, without peels
1 teaspoon dried stevia leaves, chopped
The contents of one bag of Stash Mango-Passionfruit herbal tea, without teabag
1½ TBSP half and half
1 TBSP white sugar

Load these into a small-size food processor and blend for several minutes, until the particles are very fine.

(Optional: Let the bread rise once for 30 minutes)

Turn the bread dough onto a floured board and sprinkle more flour on top, on the sticky places. Press it flat (it should make a circle 10” – 12” diameter). Cover one half of the surface with ⅓ of the filling mixture. Fold the empty half over the covered half, and press flat again. Cover one half of this new surface with the second ⅓ of the filling. Repeat a third time.

Shape into a roll: 1¼” diameter x 4 or 5” long. Let it raise for 30 minutes, or until doubled in size. Cook for 20 minutes at 350 degrees, or until done.  

This came from TJ's inspiration. It was good inspiration!

One loaf. Serves 2 or 3.
