Cranberry Nutty French Fougasse

LOOOOVE at first sight! Anyone believe in this??? I fell in love with this french fougasse since the very first look at it. And just can't stop thinking of it night and day untill the day I finally took my very first bite on it and I love it even more. hahaha.... Oh gosh, am I crazy? No, I'm not. This french bread is absolutely fantastic... the texture, the smell and taste. Hmmm...mm... Fougasse looks very much alike flat bread but much thinner. It goes so well...so well with my cappuccino! And here's the recipe.

Ingredients :
270gm bread flour
30gm all purpose flour
1/2 tspn salt
3/4 tspn yeast
190gm cold water
20gm sugar
1-1/2 tbsp olive oil/corn oil
extra olive oil/melted butter for glazing
*
Filling :
2/3 cup crashed roasted mixed nuts
1/2 cup dried cranberry
1 cup grated cheddar cheese
*
Method :
- combine all dry ingredients and starter dough into mixer bowl.
- starts mixing the ingredients by adding in the water slowly untill formed a soft dough.
- add in oil and continued the kneading process untill smooth.
- and leave to rest for an hour or double in size.
- release air from dough and knead untill smooth.
- divide dough into 4 portions.
- roll dough flat and place in cheese, mixed nuts & berries.
- then roll it up and again roll into circle.
*


- again roll out flat and shape dough into oval.
- make a few slashes right through the dough down each side and the middle to form a leaf.


- then slightly pull open the cut and place it to baking tray.
- spread on the oil glazing and leave to proof for an hour or untill double in size.

Finally, bake at 230'c for 15 mins or untill golden brown.

Ta..da....here's my sweetie pie! Oh, lovely! Can't wait to make another batch of this next week.
