Puratos fired up their ovens for me again this week. They used their best quality Belgium white chocolate (Belcolade), cranberries, pecans and O-tentic Durum. This combination resulted in a sweet and luxurious fruit and nut bread.
By now you should have figured that I am a sucker for sweet bread, especially the chocolate and fruit kind. I am very peculiar about my chocolate. Especially with white chocolate, I get irritated when bakers use the cheap kind. How would I know? With white chocolate, like Belcolade Blanc, it gave a rich cocoa butter taste and a smooth mouthfeel.
With many baker’s white chocolate out there, it tastes milky and leaves a waxy mouthfeel. So I was pleased that this bread was made with high quality stuff, and that really made a difference in the bread tasting experience. Yes, I indulged in this bread all day.
