Red Wine Longan Bread

How many of you have heard of this Masters De La Boulangerie Competition? The other day, I asked Angie regarding this and without a minute.... she found all the infor for me! Thank you very much, Angie! We were both so excited. I made a loaf with red wine longan but I've omitted the walnut. Well, maybe the bread doesn't look exactly the same but I'm expecting a soft bread loaf instead of 100% artisan bread loaf. I have my recipe as follow.
And here some links I would like to share with you.
Starter dough :
200gm flour
7gm yeast
150gm warm water

- mix all ingredients together and leave to proof overnight.
*At the same time, soak 100gm dried longan(rinsed) into 1/2 cup of red wine and leave overnight.

Main Dough :
450gm bread flour
150gm all purpose flour
150gm starter dough
1 tspn salt
200gm water
180gm milk
8gm yeast
60gm butter
* glazing : one egg yolk + 1 tspn milk
Method :
- combine all main dough ingredients and soaked longan with wine.
- mix well to form a soft dough and leave to proof for an hour.
- then place dough to a working table and knead for about 5 mins.
- roll the dough nicely and place it to a baking tray and let to rest for another one hour.
- finally, brush on egg glaze and bake at 195'c for about 30-35mins.

I have never tried making bread with wine before and was very excited to check out the loaf once it's ready! Ooo... yes, it smell like a wine loaf..... you can definitely recognize that aroma! And the longan became a little mild and not too sweet nor too strong in flavour. I've tried to spread on some jam and it tastes fabulous. I think Angie will definitely come up with something amazing soon. Happy Baking to all!

Anncoo said...

WOW! Looks easy to make this delicious bread but I'm not good at making bread.

wendyywy @ Table for 2 or more..... said...

Knead for 5 minutes? That's really short for a bread like that!!!
I should try this next time, but I will do it w/o the wine.

Mary said...

What a gorgeous loaf of bread! The use of wine has piqued my curiousity. Would it work well with cheese as well as jam? I hope you are having a great day. Blessings...Mary

The bread is very eye catching and delicious with interesting ingredients!

3 hungry tummies said...

Saw this at Angie's blog too, did you drink the rest of the red wine?

Lyndsey said...

K - I think dried berries or fruit would be perfect. I do have dried cherries and cherry wine :d

Laura in Paris said...

Red wine bread? How come I have never heard such a recipe here in France! Looks great.

Somewhere in the back of my mind I think I have tasted this bread! It looks beautiful and I imagine it tastes just as good as it looks!

Hi Pam : Nice to hear from you and thank you for visiting as well. Bread with wine is something new to me too but it was a good try. I love the flavour. It's a kind of unique. Probably, you can try this with some other liqueur as well! Let me know if you did so. OK!
Have a great day!

Angie's Recipes said...

How cool! This looks almost the same as the original one! Bravo!

Angie's Recipes said...

It looks very good with sponge method! I might give it a try too.

Katy ~ said...

I LOVE homemade bread. This looks perfect. Oh, how I would love a nice thick slice of this.

Littlechi said...

Your bread looks so yummy. What kind of red wine did you use? I'd like to give it a try.

My Little Space said...

Hi Littlechi,

OMG, what a surprise! First of all, I have to thank you for bringing me to the bread. I read about the competition but without any pictures or whatever further info about the winners. I have to thank my dear friend for that. Btw, I'm not a good drinker...and definitely not an expert in this field(in wine) either! I just used whatever wine available here. So, I've one bottle of wine which gifted by a friend...'JENARD 1996'..CABERNET SAUVIGNON, (grape wine) made in France. I hope that'll help! Thanks alot for stopping by and hope to hear from you more often.
Have a nice day!
Cheers, Kristy

Divina Pe said...

This is an incredible loaf of bread. I've read that brandy is also used but they are more like rich yeast bread. When I have a bigger oven, I'll bake more breads. :)

Miller said...

OMG, this looks amazing. I think I love you. Keri (a.k.a. Sam)

Hi Kristy,

Sorry, just wanna confirm - combine all main dough ingredients and soaked longan with wine and mix well into a soft dough, does it mean the usual kneading or as long as the ingredients come together?


My Little Space said...

Hi Jean,

Frist of all, thanks for stopping by. Yes, you're right. Normally, the first mixing is just to combine all ingredients to become dough and knead till smooth if possible. Hope this will help. >o< Enjoy your day.

kp&jean said...

Thanks! I'm just preparing the overnight dough and soaking of longans!
