Cream Cheese & Orange Sweet Bread

I couldnt stop making breads, this time i tried out a super prefect sweet bread with cream cheese and orange zest along with orange juice... I came across cream cheese sweet bread at Champa's space long back which i bookmarked immediately...I got a chance to make this wonderful bread this weekend and we couldnt stop having this flavourful sweet bread, my teddies enjoyed having this sweet bread with nutella spread and my H enjoyed with strawberry jam, obviously we had a wonderful sunday brunch with some hot chocolate along with this beautiful sweet bread..Thanks a ton to Champa for sharing this beautiful bread, in which i have added few orange zest and freshly squeezed orange juice..We loved it..

Sweet bread

3cups All purpose flour
150grms Cream cheese(cubed)
1/3cup Sugar
1/4cup Water
1tsp Salt
2tbsp Orange zest
1/4cup Orange juice
1+1/4tbsp Active dry yeast
Milk for brushing before baking

Mix the warm water,sugar, yeast together,keep aside until its turns frothy, in a large bowl mix the cream cheese,salt,orange zest and flour together, add the foamy yeast mixture and knead along with orange juice as soft and smooth dough, arrange the dough in a greased bowl and keep in warm place for an hour until the dough gets doubled..

Punch down the doubled dough and knead well,turn as a loaf..Place the loaf in a greased loaf pan,cover the pan with a towel and keep again in a warm place, let it double again atleast for an hour..Once the dough doubled the volume, preheat the oven to 375F,brush the dough with milk and bake for 20minutes, turn down the oven to 325F and bake for 10-15minutes until the crust turns golden brown and the bread sounds hollow when tapped in the bottom..Keep aside and let them cool completely..

Slice the bread as per need and enjoy for snacks or breakfast with any sort of spreads..

  13. This must be delicious. I love the idea of adding cream cheese to a bread. I have never seen that, and the orange must have made it have such a nice citrus flavor:)
    I love anything with orange in it.
