Granola breakfast bread

I like variety when it comes to breakfast. I always find it a treat to have different breads with fruits or spices and this one is no exception. It takes little time to prepare if you have a stand mixer and the result is a lovely, airy and semi-sweet breakfast sensation. Slice it in half and add a touch of butter, perfect with a cup of very strong coffee.

500 Gr. Bread flour
230 Ml lukewarm whole milk (1 Cup)
30 Gr. Butter at room temperature
15 Gr. Sugar
10 Gr. Dry Yeast
2 Large eggs at room temperature
150 Gr. Homemade granola

In a stand mixer’s bowl, add the milk, yeast and sugar and mix well.
Add the eggs and mix well.
Add the flour and set the mixer at the lowest level. Knead for 5 minutes, until the dough comes together.
Add the butter cut in 3 pieces and increase the speed of your mixer to incorporate the butter fully. Knead until the butter is fully incorporated in the dough. (About 5 minutes).
Add the Granola and mix well at medium speed to ensure the granola is well incorporated in the dough.
Form a ball and cover with a cling film. Let the dough rest for 1 1/2 hour, until it doubles in size.
After the proofing time, cut the dough in 10 equal pieces (about 110 Gr. each) and form small balls.
Dip each ball in a little bit of milk and then in the granola mixture.
Grease a baking dish with butter and place the dough balls in the dish.
Cover with a tea towel for 30 minutes.
Preheat your oven at 190 Celsius and when ready, bake for 20 minutes, until golden brown.
You may sprinkle a little icing sugar for a sweet touch or brush with some apricot jam.
Serve warm or cut them in half and toast them with just a little bit of butter… I know, naughty !
