Cafe au Lait Hearth Bread

Cafe au Lait Hearth Bread

I love cafe au lait, so I baked a caramel cafe au lait hearth bread.

Ingredients: 1 loaf (about 1205 kcal)

Bread (strong) flour
200 g
Instant coffee
5 g
20 g
3 g
Dry yeast
For the filling
Caramel (cut into 9 cubes)
3 large pieces


1. Put the ingredients into the bread maker, and start it on the bread dough course. Take the dough out of the pan, and let sit for 10 minutes.
2. Stretch the dough out to a 20 x 20 cm neat square, scatter the caramel cubes, then roll up tightly. Seal the edges well.
3. Let the dough ferment for a second time until it has doubled in size. Be careful not to let it dry out during the 2nd rising.
4. Cut several slits into the dough while the oven is preheating, and bake at 180°C for 25 minutes. Slice thickly, and enjoy.
5. You could add chunks of white chocolate into the dough as well.
