Cranberry Chutney Pull Apart Bread

I made this Cranberry Chutney Pull apart Bread as a way to use up left over cranberry chutney. I used my IndianCranberry chutney that is a bit sweet, savory and hot. And I think that’s why this bread works. If you were to make it with a regular cranberry relish or chutney, it might be too sweet. Not that that is a bad thing. But just so you know.

The dough for this bread is enriched, so patience is key. It  will take a bit of time to rise. But don’t rush the process. In fact, sometimes I make the dough a day earlier and then let it hang out in the fridge for 8 to 12 hours. The long cold fermentation adds a lot of flavor and you don’t have to do everything at one go.

I used Brie with the cranberry chutney to fill the bread. And although this is a bit messy to make, the results are well worth it.

This month our host Kelly from Passion Kneaded  chose the wonderful theme of Pull Apart breads to get all the #BreadBakers baking. Thanks Kelly. This was a lot of fun.
