For this month’s Bread Bakers the theme choosen by was Baking with Nuts or Nut flour…….
I thought of using Peanut in my bread. I made this Sweet brittle with peanut and coconut , stuffed this in the ring shaped bread and baked this sweet bread.
All purpose flour – 3 cup
Salt – 1 tsp
Sugar – 2 tbs
Instant Dry Yeast - 2 ½ tbs
Lukewarm water – 1 ½ cup
Butter – 1 tbs
For peanut Brittle :
Peanut – 1 cup
Grated fresh coconut – ½ cup
White sugar – 4 tbs
Brown sugar – 6 tbs
Clarified butter – 1 tsp
In a bowl , mix together flour , salt , sugar and yeast .
To this add the lukewarm water and mix the dough.
Knead the dough for 15 minutes or till the dough becomes soft and smooth.
Add the butter and knead again.
Place the dough in a oiled bowl and let it double for two hour.
Making of peanut Brittle :
In a pan , add the peanuts and roast till the nice flavor comes.
Let it cool and de-skin the peanuts.
Add the de- skinned peanuts and sugar , heat in a slow flame . The sugar melts and starts to caramelize , mix well.
Add in the brown sugar and let it melt and coats well with the peanuts.
Now , add the freshly grated coconut and give a quick stir followed by clarified butter . Take off flame and let it cool.
Roll the whole dough in an elongated way , to fit the ring mould pan .
Place this shaped bread in the ring mould pan.
Bake the bread in a preheated oven @ 200* C for 40 minutes.
Let the bread cool in the rack.
We can make this peanut brittle without coconut too. I added coconut to avoid the brittle becomes hard.
If fresh grated coconut is not available , can use dessicated coconut.
