Apple Multicereal Milk Bread with Streusel Toppings

Apple Milk Bread with Streusel Toppings

One thing I hate so much in the kitchen is wasting food. For whatever reason, I always try to come up with solution to avoid dumping them. When I used to babysit for my nieces and nephew back in Philippines, I remember how often I would try to explain to their young minds that there is so much poverty and hunger in this world everytime they refuse to finish their meal. Of course it doesn't do magic all the time. Sometimes I am resorted into blackmailing them :-).

Anyways, with this thoughts in my head as I meticulously pour the apple purée in the empty gerber bottles for my daughter I realized that I cooked too much. I tried to look everywhere to see if there is still some empty gerber bottle hiding somewhere, but it was in vain. I could very well make some pattisserie with it like "chausson aux pommes" but I already promised my hubby to only bake patisseries only once a week. He is just concern about our calories intake :-). In other words we are getting fatter since I've been hooked up into blogging. So I thought why not milk bread it won't be so bad with some apples on it.

I'll be sending this over to Susan for her weekly Yeastspotting. If you love bread you should check that out :-)

Apple Multicereal Milk Bread with Streusel Toppings

250 g of flour
250 g of Multicereal flour
30 g of sugar
1 teaspoon of dry yeast
10 g of salt
20 cl of milk
3 tablespoons of apple purée
1 egg
50 of melted butter

Toppings :
30 g of butter
30 g of chopped any nuts (walnuts, almonds, etc)
30 g of sugar
30 g of flour

In your working table combine your two flours. Make a whole in the middle put your melted butter, egg, sugar, yeast and half of the milk. Add also the salt but avoid having direct contact with the yeast. Start mixing them with your hands little by little. Add the rest of your milk. Be sure to check if you need to put less or more milk depending on the consistency of your dough. You can also use your bread machine to do this bread by putting all your ingredients except the apple, just ad dit up after the first beep indicating that the dough’s well mixed. Once the dough becomes elastic add your apple purée and continue mixing. Leave it covered and let it rest for about an hour. Grease your loafbread pan and put the dough gently. Let it rise again for another one hour and a half. Preheat the oven at 200° celsius and bake this for about twenty minutes. You can put or not put the streusel depending on your preference. For the streusel toppings mix all the ingredients and half it halfway the cooking time.

I swear this milk bread is great for breakfast!

I hate te waste food as well. In this case it was a good thing you had some leftover apple pure, you've put it to a good use. That bread looks very inviting and healthy!

Tijen said...

Thanks so much for your visit.

linda said...

Your husband seems very strict, I mean, only 1 time a week? On the other hand, maybe you'll enjoy it more if you don't eat it so much ;)

Great way of using up the left-over apple sauce. The bread looks delicious!

ooooooooooohhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!! if only i could eat my computer screen and it'd taste like this thing!

I think I tend to agree to the baking only once a week mantra. If it wasn't for giving away sweets at the student clinic, I'd be alot fatter than I would like.

I like the milk bread. It looks very moist and has a summery type texture. After looking at this and Leftover Queen's Bread post the other week, I think I might soon be a homemade bread converter.

I love the sound of this bread. Yes bloggin doesnt help the waste line. But I cant give it up.

I hear you, I noticed a few years back how much food I was wasting. I was ashamed and made some serious changes. I learned how to use foods more efficiently, shop more often and buy less, freeze, and turn anything that needs eaten into something wonderful. This bread looks really nice, I am new to baking bread but love it.

farida said...

This is such a creative cake!

I agree, dumping food makes me feel bad too - there are so many people around the world, starving. O

Ohhh, talk about gaining weight. I put on 10 pounds within 3 months of blogging, and luckily forced myself into jogging. I lost the pounds but not the great appetite for food:) I wonder if drooling over the pictures from other blogs makes me fat too:)

i agree - never waste food; it can be used up in different ways

Anne in swON said...

I'd love to make this bread but I am confused by how much milk to use. The recipe calls for '20 cl of milk' but I don't know what 'cl' represents. Could you clarify this for me, please?

haze said...

I prefer this bread because of multi cereals :D! Bread looks delicious.

Oh, I love the idea of topping soft bread with a highly textured streusel. It's just perfect!
