As I mentioned last time, I had a fruit loaf under way. I partly followed the recipe by SourDom and the Earl Grey Tea variatiion. A compilation of the result follows.
First up I must say that the result was delicious and got the thumbs up all around, both fresh and toasted (which it does beautifully).
As a general commentary, I followed Dom's method of incorporating the fruit and the result of that shows with the fruit in patches and not evenly distributed though I might have over-interpreted his 'be gentle with shaping'. I think this also led to the split to the fruit layer and possibly a little less oven spring due to the 'tightness' of the layer beneath. The dough was also slightly on the firm side so possibly a little higher hydration would help.
I think next time I will add a little extra fluid and see if I can incorporate the fruit a little better.
Still, a very satisfying result!
