A Feast of Ice and Fire
Each bite of this bread has a different combination of fruity filling, but the entire loaf is soft and delicious, with the oats providing a subtle heartiness. A bite with a bit of candied orange peel is so utterly sweet and wonderful that it will keep you coming back for more and more.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the warm water, yeast, and honey. Allow the mixture to sit for around 5 minutes, until it becomes bubbly.
Add the oats, 1 cup of the flour, the salt, and butter to the yeasted water. Stir until completely mixed together, then add the fruits and work the mixture until they are evenly distributed throughout. Gradually add the rest of the flour until you have a cohesive mass of dough.
Flour a board or your countertop, and then turn the dough out onto it. Adding flour as needed, knead the dough for around 8 minutes. If you poke it and it bounces back, you're done.
Place the dough in a greased bowl and cover it with a clean dish towel. Put it in a warm place until it has doubled in size. Then punch it down and divide it in half. Form the dough into two round loaves. Wet the top of each loaf with a little water, then sprinkle it with rolled oats. Using a sharp knife, lightly score the top with an X shape.
Place these loaves on a baking sheet and allow them to sit, covered with a clean tea towel, for about 1 hour, or until they have doubled in size again.
Preheat the oven to 400F.
Bake the loaves for around 30 minutes, or until they are golden brown.
Ideally, you should allow the loaves to cool for at least 10 minutes before cutting into one, but given how good this bread smells, you might have trouble leaving it alone.
