    Red Apple Guy's Note:

    A braided loaf, this is one of the more delicious breads I've made. It's a Bernard Clayton recipe, modified with 50% whole wheat flour. Excellent for breakfast. I don't ice the loaf.

    1. 1
      In large mixing bowl or mixer bowl, add the whole wheat flour and the non-flour dry ingredients.
    2. 2
      Pour in the hot water and add the shortening.
    3. 3
      Beat with a wooden spoon 150 strokes or with the mixer flat blade for 2 minutes.
    4. 4
      Stir in the fruit and nuts.
    5. 5
      Add the flour slowly, mixing with a wooden spoon and then by hand until a rough, soft mass is formed. If using a mixer, use dough hook and add flour until dough forms a soft ball around the hook and moves with it.
    6. 6
      Knead for 10 minutes, adding flour if too wet and a little water if too dry.
    7. 7
      Place dough in a clean, oiled bowl and let it rise until doubled in volume. Another test is when a finger poked into it leaves a dent that remains.
    8. 8
      Divide the dough into 3 equal pieces and gently roll into 3 strands, 20 inches long. If the dough resists stretching, cover and wait 10 minutes until the dough relaxes. The strands should be tapered at the ends.
    9. 9
      Braid the strands loosely and seal the ends, tucking them under.
    10. 10
      Cover the loaf with plastic wrap and let it rise until doubled in volume at room temperature. I place the loaf in the fridge overnight and the next day I let it warm and rise for about and hour and a half.
    11. 11
      Heat oven to 375F about 20 minutes before baking.
    12. 12
      Bake on a baking stone or baking sheet for about 30 minutes or until 200F internal temperature and remove and cool on a wire rack.
    13. 13
      Mix the topping ingredients and spread or drizzle on the loaf while the loaf is still slightly warm.
