Sophie’s energetic & healthy breakfast bread

A truly appetizing bread! Home-made too!
A delightful interior!

I love-making this as breakfast. This is a sort of bread but there is no yeast in it. It is made in a bread tin & has dried figs & raisins. I added cinnamon, an egg & lavender honey to it. There are also rolled oats in it that are soaked in milk.

This is so yummy on its own or delicious with jam, ricotta or honey on it. Toasted it is also nice.

When I eat 1 slice, it really fills me up! I don’t have to eat anything else for about 3 hours.

Recipe: For about 16 slices
240 gr of self-raising flour
1 teaspoon of baking powder
1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
50 gr of rolled oats
300 ml of semi-skimmed milk
60 gr of dried figs, the top ( the stem ) cut out, chopped into pieces
115 gr of raisins
1 organic egg, beaten
75 gr of raw sugar ( unrefined cane sugar )
3 tablespoons of lavender honey ( I used this honey because I like its taste )
3 tablespoons of sliced almonds + 2 tablespoons of sliced almonds extra
1. Take a bowl & place the rolled oats in it. Add the 300 ml of the semi skimmed milk. Stir. Let the oats soak into the milk for 30 minutes.
2. Preheat the oven to 180°C for a normal oven. I use a fan oven so it is 162°C for me, for about 10 minutes.
3. Take your Kenwood or Kitchen Aid & take the fitting bowl. Put your K paddle in your Kenwood. Mix the flour with the baking powder. Now, sift the flour & the baking powder in your fitting bowl.
4. Add the soaked oats & the milk into the flour mix, with your speed on 2 or 3 until well mixed.
5. Add the dried fruits & mix well on speed 2, 3 or 4.
6. Add the sugar, cinnamon, honey, beaten egg & 3 tablespoons of the sliced almonds. Mix well on speed 2, 3 or 4 until it all is beautifully combined.
7. When it is all well joined, take your silicon bread tin & pour the mixture evenly in it. If you don’t have a silicon bread tin, use a normal bread tin & grease with butter & line with baking paper. This is a 1 kg bread tin.
8. Take the 2 tablespoons of sliced almonds & scatter them evenly over the top of the bread.
9. Place on to a silpat , on a baking tray & place into the lower part of the oven. Bake the bread for about 45 minutes until risen, golden brown on top & cooked trough.
10. Test with a sewing pin, if the bread is ready. If so, carefully take it out of the oven & after 10 minutes or so, take it out of the silicon tin. Place it on a wire rack to cool down completely.
11. When completely cooled off, slice into slices & enjoy with a bit of jam, honey or fresh ricotta! It also is yummy toasted! Store in an airtight container.

  2. Anything with dried or fresh figs works for me, and I especially love in bread, lightly toasted with bit of butter. This looks absolutely wonderful. Thank you!

  3. Yum! Sounds great Sophie! And for the breads I've made for the BBA Challenge, we have all agreed not to post the recipes. But all the recipes are in a wonderful book called the Bread Baker's Apprentice by Peter Reinhart! It's a great book!

  4. It almost looks dessert-like! Love figs and the nuts on the outside.Have you made the eggs in a hole yet? 🙂

  5. O that is a truly good bread! How long can you keep it after baking? Do you have to eat it the same day or can it keep for a couple of days?

  6. Sophie, that bread is something I'd love to try, especially considering I have many a health nut a friend who loves seeds, grains, dried fruit, nuts etc…in their breads, including myself! Yours looks gorgeous and sounds delicious!!Now, this BYOB, where can I join up? There are so many bread baking thingamahjigs out there, and I'm posting a unique challah I made in a few days or so. Would love to submit! 🙂

  7. Oh my gosh. Sophie, this looks SOO good, and best of all- NO YEAST! I could actually eat this bread!! FANTASTIC! I need to look into this bake your own bread round-up!

  8. Such a healthy breakfast! You must feel with a lot of energy to start the day after a bread like that!

  9. Thank you so much for all the info, Sophie! I'm going to try and finish the challah blog tonight, but for some reason, I'm having trouble getting motivated – writer's block!

  10. Absolutely delicious that bread/cake, my energy levels are going up even just from looking at it, so full of everything, dried fruits(nuts) and many other beauties, well done and thank you for sharing look delicious, kisses 🙂 xxx

  11. Oh! Sophie,it looks delicious. Estoy intentando cosas nuevas para el desayuno y el pan es perfecto, me encanto

  12. I have been looking for lavender honey for one year! (No results) What a gorgeous bread – really a work of art. Brava!

  13. Hello there! Thank you for your kind comments over on my blog! Since you asked, I am also originally from Brussels, but even though my father is Flemish (from Ostend) I only speak French. It's a little strange… (Well, I can understand Dutch a litte)I love this type of hearty bread, full of flavour! Your blog looks wonderful and versatile. I look forward to reading more!

  14. That looks really healthy and good for you, no wonder you look so fantastic in your photo!PS. Have you succumbed to Twitter yet, would love to chat!

  15. Wow, that looks positively yummy and nutty. Of course, it's a bit more appetizing than my edible props, but I'll suffer through it.

  16. How wonderful the dried figs and lavender honey sound! The whole bread looks delicious – a healthy meal on its own. A cup of tea with a bit more of that lavendar honey would go perfectly with a slice (or two) of your bread!

  17. I love bread – and am such a carb-aholic. The best part about this is that it's pretty healthy so there's no guilt attached!

  20. This bread sounds absolutely filling and healthy. A great recipe, I'm not sure if just 1 slice is enough for me.
