    I have recently seen a wonderfully looking break that was filled with nuts like sesame as well as raisins. Do you like to bake breads with savory and sweet combined? If so, what are some of your favorite recipes? I have one I am thinking of trying as follows:

    Starter
    • 1 cup flour
    • 1/2 cup cool water
    • 1/8 teaspoon yeast
    Dough
    • 2 1/4 cups flour
    • 1 1/4 teaspoons salt
    • 2 teaspoons yeast
    • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
    • 1/4 cup (4 tablespoons) soft unsalted butter
    • 2 large eggs
    • 1 large egg yolk, white reserved
    • 1/4 teaspoon flavor*
    • grated peel of 1 large orange
    Filling
    • 3/4 cup dried fruits
    • 3/4 cup walnuts
    • 1/2 cup sugar
    Topping
    • sugar for decorating
    Makes starter and leave overnight. The next day, mix the starter with the dough until elastically. Let sit for 2 hours to rise. Now divide the dough into 3 pieces, flatten them to prepare to be filled. Mix the filling ingredients together and spread on the rectangles. The photos I have seen show it braided. Cover the braid and allow to rise for 1 to 2 hours. Set oven to 350 and brush the bread with the egg white then bake the bread for 35 to 40 minutes until golden brown.
