3-fruit brioche loaf


3-fruit brioche loaf
This long brioche is called a "lingot" (ingot) in French. It is filled with three layers of different fried fruits: apricots, raisins and cranberries.

When sliced, the three layers are revealed - and it's every bit as delicious as it looks.

Stage 2 - 12 min.

Stage 3 - 2 min.

Lay the first rectangle in the bottom of the tin.

It doesn't matter if the dough is a bit too big, just fold up the edges (like in this photo), but it mustn't be too small.

Stage 4 - 3 min.

Stage 5 - 4 min.

Preheat the oven to 360°F (180°C).

Cover the tin or mould with either a suitable flat lid or a baking sheet upside down over the top and weight this down with anything heavy that can go in the oven.

This will give your loaf a nice flat top.

Stage 11 - 45 min.
