Hazelnut, Apricot and Honey Wholemeal Loaf

The Alpha Bakes challenge for May is to bake something beginning with the letter 'H'. It's hosted this month by Caroline of Caroline Makes  who alternates hosting with Ros from The more than occasional Baker I had a browse through my books and found this Hazelnut, Apricot and Honey Wholemeal Loaf in The Great British Bake Off, How to BakeThat gives me two H's!

It's a sweet wholemeal bread mix, with honey instead of sugar and milk instead of water.  Added to it are toasted hazelnuts and chopped apricots.  I think I would add a little more liquid to the mix next time as the dough was quite tight and heavy. 

In the book they loaf was made as a plait, so I followed suit, then brushed with milk to give a shine to the loaf.  

I served the loaf sliced, lightly buttered with sliced Fair Trade bananas and a bowl of Fairtrade oranges and Fairtrade Bananas.  It was a really nice change for breakfast and very filling.

I'm entering this for 'Breakfast Club #22, Let's hear it for Fair Trade' run by Helen at Fuss Free Flavours. The challenge runs every month with details of hosts on its own Breakfast Club page. 

This month there is a prize for entering the Breakfast Club challenge so get over there and join in!

Wow, that's a really beautiful loaf. I love the sound of all those flavours and that breakfast looks right up my street - I do find a combination of fruit and bread (or toast) for breakfast fills me up far better than either cereal or even porridge.

Thanks for entering this to AlphaBakes. A lovely double 'H' entry! I love the sliced bananas on the bread - my kind of breakfast - yum!

Ooh, lovely- thanks! We've had a few hazelnut and honey entries for Alphabakes but none using both, and none in bread!

Well it sounds delicious and double points for getting two H's in.
