Today we bring you a sweet bread so easy to do, really perfect for breakfast or snacks and very simple to conserve: just cover it with a kitchen towel and it will last (if protected from direct air) for 5 or 6 days...but I guarantee you'll eat it before! It's a bread that is somewhat similar to a cake, you'll notice that the coconut will add moisture and the walnuts a very tasty rustic touch. It's one of those recipes you discover experimenting in you house and then becomes classics. You can of course add more walnuts or change them for other dried fruits, but I recommend you to try the coconut/walnut combo. And you can do others kinds of bread too, for example we've already shown you another kind of rustic and tasty bread here!
With the given quantities you will obtain two breads, so if you just want one bread...you know what to do! Half the quantities! ;)
- 550 g. of flour
- 80 g. of butter
- 2 eggs
- 500 ml of milk
- 350 g. of sugar
- 15 g. of baking powder
- 80 g. of dried coconut
- 70 g. of walnuts approximately
- 2 envelopes of Vanillina or Vanilla powder
1º- We add the butter in a bowl that has to be very creamy. We mix it with two eggs and sugar. We stir deeplyu the mix.
2º- Now add the flour and the milk. We will do this step twice, adding half the ingredients each time, stirring and incorporating well the ingredients before adding the rest of the ingredients.
3º- Add the coconut and the chopped walnuts. Add a little bit of flour with the walnuts, so that the flour will not go just on the bottom of our bread.
4º- Pour the dough in moulding pan we've previously covered with butter. Remember that with these quantities you will obtain two breads plum cake like. Decorate the surface with walnuts the way you like it.
5º- Bake in a preheated oven at 170°C during 30 minutes with only bottom heating, and then other 30 minutes with bottom and top heating. If we see that our bread is getting golden brown but the interior is not yet ready (go with a needle, and if the needle gets out of the bread clean the bread is ready, if you see on it traces of the dough then is not), yo can cover it with an aluminium foil, and continue baking it with no problems.
If we prefer, we can decorate the surface with sugar, or you can put a glace icing over it, you choose!
