Un altro giorno un altro pezzo di pane. This time with Raisins, almonds, oatmeal  with a honey & marscapone spread.

Ingredients:

3 cups flour

1/2 teaspoon yeast

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1/4 tsp. nutmeg

1 tablespoon kosher salt

1-1/2 cups water

1/2 cup raisins

1/4 cup oatmeal

1/4 cup almonds

8 oz marscapone

1/8 cup honey

2 tablespoons brown sugar (one for top of bread and one for marscapone)

1/4 tsp almond extract

Directions:

Prepare 12 hours in advance. Mix together flour, salt, yeast, cinnamon, nutmeg, 1 tablespoon brown sugar, and water until just blended.  Dough will be sticky.  Stir in raisins and almonds. Let sit in a covered bowl for at least 12 hours.

Preheat oven to 450 degrees for approximately 30 minutes. Place covered dutch oven in oven while it is heating.  Carefully remove from oven, take off lid and drop dough into the hot pot.  Sprinkle with oatmeal and brown sugar.  Cover and cook for 30 minutes.  Take off lid and cook for approximately 15 minutes more until top is evenly browned.

Take out of dutch oven and let cool on wire rack.  While cooling, mix marscapone, honey, 1 tablespoon brown sugar, and almond extract until well blended.  Spread on sliced bread.
