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.

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.

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.

This brioche can be eaten on its own, but can also be served in a dish as a dessert with custard (crème anglaise) or a scoop of vanilla ice cream, for example.

Remarks

The initial amounts, 400 g brioche dough divided into four 100 g pieces, work for a 2l (approx. 4 pt) tin or mould, 26x10x10 cm (10x4x4 inches). You should adapt the quantities if your tin or mould is smaller.

This recipe can be varied using any other dried fruit you like.
