Gold Medal Flour

Ingredients

Bread

  • 3 cups Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon or cardamom
  • 1 package fast-acting dry yeast (2 1/4 teaspoons)
  • 1 1/4 cups very warm water (120°F to 130°F)
  • 1/4 cup butter or margarine, melted
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup diced dried fruit and raisin mixture (from 7-oz bag)

Glaze

  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 to 3 teaspoons milk

Steps

  • 1
    Spray bottom and sides of 9x5-inch loaf pan with cooking spray.
  • 2
    In large bowl, mix 2 cups of the flour, the granulated sugar, salt, cinnamon and yeast. Add water, butter and egg. Beat with electric mixer on medium speed 3 minutes, scraping bowl frequently. Stir in dried fruit and remaining 1 cup flour to make a stiff batter.
  • 3
    Spread batter in pan; pat into shape with floured hands. Cover loosely with plastic wrap lightly sprayed with cooking spray; let rise in warm place 45 to 60 minutes or until doubled in size.
  • 4
    Heat oven to 375°F. Remove plastic wrap. Bake 40 to 45 minutes or until loaf sounds hollow when tapped. Immediately remove from pan and place top side up on cooling rack. Cool completely, about 1 hour.
  • 5
    In small bowl, mix glaze ingredients until smooth and thin enough to drizzle. Drizzle glaze over top of loaf.

  • Don’t skimp on the beating time. This allows the batter to develop the gluten, or the structure, of the bread.
  • Look for different varieties of dried fruit mixtures. Some have more raisins, apples and apricots, while others have dried berries.
