TGIFF Bread and Butter


What is better than bread and butter? How about cherry, date, and walnut bread with cinnamon and brown sugar butter?


3 cups flour

1 ½ tablespoons kosher salt

1 ½ teaspoons yeast

1 cup + 2 tablespoons water

½ cup dried cherries

½ cup dates, chopped

½ cup walnuts, chopped


1 stick butter softened

1 teaspoon cinnamon

2 tablespoons brown sugar

Mix together flour, salt, and yeast in stand mixer. Add water slowly reserving 2 tablespoons. If dough ball does not form after a few minutes add the water a teaspoon at a time until it forms a bowl that does not stick to the sides. Add dates, cherries, and walnuts and mix until combined.

Place dough in a covered bowl overnight.

In the morning preheat oven to 450 degrees with the pot in the oven so it heats up. Plop dough into pan. Cover and cook for approx. 30 minutes. Remove lid and cook for about 15 minutes more.

Add cinnamon and brown sugar to softened butter and mix.
