Fruit and Nut Bread

Fruit and Nut Bread

This fruit bread with 30% Lupin flour has appealing colour and sensory qualities. The choice of fruit and nuts and combinations thereof is too great to list here and should be made by individual preferences. In this instance fruit (sultanas), nut (walnuts) and seed (pepitas) were used.

Lupin is high in dietary fibre (30%) and protein (close to 40%), low in fat (6%), and contains only minimal starch and therefore a very low Glycemic Index (GI), offering a healthy addition to your bakery product range.

Hi Syd,Lining the tin should do the trick. I made a loaf of Fruit Bread for the Melbourne Gluten Free Show on the weeeknd and had the same trouble. Usually if you let the bread sit in the tin for 5 10 minutes after it comes out of the oven it should slide out of the tin.
