I used a KitchenAid stand up mixer to prep the dough. Adjusted in a few places; from a recipe on the website MinimalistBaker.com. The test recipe I prepared included a variety of nuts and seeds: hazelnuts, almonds, sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds. You can also use a variety of other dried fruit in addition to or in place of the raisins: cranberries, dates, prunes, etc.

How to Make Muesli Bread

Step-by-Step

  1. Attach the DOUGH HOOK to your stand up mixer.
  2. Combine the warm water and yeast in the metal bowl. Stir. Let sit for about 5 minutes or until the yeast starts to bubble a little.
  3. Add the flour and salt. KNEAD for approximately 4 minutes. If the dough is too sticky add a little more flour. KNEAD until the dough is smooth.
  4. Grease a bowl, cover dough and place in the refrigerator for 2 1/2-3 hours.
  5. Place parchment paper on a heavy duty cast iron pan (I used my Lodge cast iron griddle). Place the dough on a floured surface. KNEAD a few times. Now incorporate the raisins, nuts and seeds into the dough. To avoid the raisins and nuts burning on the surface, push them closer to the inside of the dough ball. Form into a round loaf. Scatter the rolled oats on the top of the ball-pushing the rolled oats in gently with the palm of your hand. Lightly sprinkle some flour over the top.
  6. Transfer the loaf to the parchment lined pan and allow to rise in a warm oven for about 30 minutes.
  7. PREHEAT oven to 450 degrees. Once the oven has come to temperature, place an ovenproof pan of boiling water on the bottom rack. Bake the bread on the middle rack for approximately 35 minutes or until the top is a deep golden brown. Remove from the oven and place the loaf on a wire rack to cool.

    We served our slices with a choice of homemade orange marmalade, peanut butter, cow's butter, coconut butter and local honey.
