Let me tell you about this raisin pecan loaf that I baked from my book, New Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day (Breadin5). I made our big batch of the Master Recipe using Platinum Yeast from Red Star Yeast, then pulled off a piece of dough, rolled in some raisins and pecans using a French Rolling Pin from JK Adams, let it rest and scored the top with a super sharp Bread Knife from Shun Cutlery just before I baked it in an Emile Henry Cloche. Two days later I took out another piece of dough and rolled in olives and sharp VT cheddar. Five days later I grabbed yet another bit of dough, put it in a proofing basket and baked it as a pure and simple boule. If you have a bucket of dough on hand, you’ll have the base for all of these fantastic loaves.
Raisin Pecan Bread
Find the full recipe below. Want to know more about the equipment I use? My Amazon shop has it all.
Using a rolling pin, roll the dough to a 1/2″ thick rectangle. Spread the raisins and pecans over the dough, roll it into a log, fold the log into a ball, then knead the dough a bit to distribute the raisins and pecans throughout the dough. Place the ball of dough on a piece of parchment, cover with a large bowl or plastic and let rise for about 90 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 500°F with the cloche in the oven. More on baking in a Cloche here. Sprinkle a bit of flour on the dough, score the bread with the knife and place in the preheated cloche.
Bake for 20 minutes, remove the cover of the cloche, turn down the oven to 450°F and continue baking for another 15 minutes or until deeply browned. Allow to cool completely before serving.
Slice and add butter!
- 1 1/2 lbs Master Dough from Breadin5
- 1 cup raisins
- 1 cup pecans
- Using a rolling pin, roll the dough to a 1/2" thick rectangle. Spread the raisins and pecans over the dough, roll it into a log, fold the log into a ball, then knead the dough a bit to distribute the raisins and pecans throughout the dough. Place the ball of dough on a piece of parchment, cover with a large bowl or plastic and let rise for about 90 minutes.
- Preheat the oven to 500°F with the cloche in the oven. More on baking in a Cloche here. Sprinkle a bit of flour on the dough, score the bread with the knife and place in the preheated cloche.
- Bake for 20 minutes, remove the cover of the cloche, turn down the oven to 450°F and continue baking for another 15 minutes or until deeply browned. Allow to cool completely (at least 1 hour) before serving.

Can you also add sweet things like chocolate or jams to the bread before you bake it, or are those things too heavy?

Beautiful as always, Zoë! I’ve just started doing the master batches of bread (we just do a simple white or a white / wheat mix), but my husband agrees that we’ve never had yummier bread! I think it’s the crust not going to lie, though, the dessert recipes are my true weakness!

What a wonderful opportunity, thanks for hosting this giveaway! Breadin5 was my gateway to no knead bread almost 10 years ago now! It got me a lot more comfortable with yeast and since then my family rarely buys bread, we are so used to homemade bread now!! Your creations on this site are always so beautiful and inspiring!
Although I don’t particularly like raisins or nuts I watched your Instagram stories & the cheddar cheese bread & the “plain” loaf both look fabulous! Beautiful work! (& belated happy birthday )
You have rekindled my love for baking with your videos! Thank you!

Delightful! I’ve been baking in my Dutch oven and love the crust it gives but I’m always mildly paranoid I’ll burn my hands when dropping in the dough. A cloche is ingenious!
I so need these items, it would be great to win! Thanks
This bread is so yummy with butter and honey on top
Love you insta account! Always using your recipes!
I would love to win this….I need more baking supplies! I started baking with Baker Bettie and now follow you and a few others to learn more. I have mastered the Kouign Aman which impressed my family. I adore baking and making those around me happy with the things I am learning from all of you!

This looks amazing! I love baking breads.
I have town to love baking bread, I started about 9 months ago and I’m hooked, only bread we eat in our house now is home baked, it’s soo delicious, my favorites are Dakota bread and a no knead bread for soup and our absolute favorite is shokupan or milk bread, but I really am inspired by your raisin pecan bread, I think my husband will love it so I have to try, but I don’t have all these tools, so it would be so great to win them. Thank you for all your recipes, whatever you make always looks amazing.

Homemade baked bread for the win!! I grew up with fresh bread everyday and this reminds me of the times we’d come home from school to a plate of warm, soft bread paired with hot spiced tea. Yummm!!

This looks so good! Can’t wait to try this out. Your Instagram video made this a lot less intimidating.
That raisin pecan bread looks so delicious I will have to make it!
Looks great! Raisin bread is my fav!
I loooooove all your recipes and how you are such a good teacher, I’ve learned a lot about baking thanks to you. I hope I can win this set so I can keep learning from you! Thanks for all your hard work and for sharing your talent!
This looks so yummy. Thank you for all the time and passion you put into these videos
Wow! That cloche looks like it gives it the YUMMIEST crust! Happy belated birthday and yummy bread day.
Love baking bread. Focaccia is simply amazing with every meal.

Happy birthday! Great giveaway! I also entered on Instagram as @Cezovski9
This bread looks fantastic. I love you and your website and your baking, but Iove to bake for my family even more. Hoping to win this package. Lots of love and happy belated birthday
I can’t wait to try this!
Oh my gosh yes!!!!
This bread looks delicious!
I love ALL your posts that inspire me to try new recipes and these bread variations are so tempting me. Help me win the tools to get up earlier and bake!
I love ALL your posts and this video that inspired me more so as breads are my newest love.
I would love to win a giveaway!
This bread is everything I’ve ever wanted! Man. Skip the turkey and give me a 20lb loaf please!!!’
Such a simple and elegant loaf! I want to try it with all kinds of different fillings.
Would love to win for my husband. Went to school for baking, worked in field for short time. Changed careers. Now slowly getting back into making bread for our young family. Happy Birthday!
Raisin Pecan Bread is tied with raisin challah for my favorite…yours looks beautiful!
Wow! Gorgeous looking loaf of raisin pecan bread! You make it look so easy. I hope I win!
I would love to try it with cinnamon sugar and mini chocolate chips!!!
Yum! I love bread in all forms! I also live watching you bake!
I surely would be tempted to add cinnamon to this amazing bread. I love that the dough can hold. I can’t eat a loaf in one day and because of that I don’t bake as often as I like. It’s such a process for just one loaf but having more than one at a time they go stale and I just don’t like it as much when it’s been frozen. I’ll be trying this dough out for sure!
I would certainly add cinnamon
I did not mean to comment twice. The first comment, when I clicked to post it, a window popped up telling me that I had already commented that, when I know I had not, so I tried again.
Happy Birthday!! Thank you for sharing your love of baking with us.
Literally everything you make goes on my bucket list to try! You have never failed me with any of your recipes. Thank you for sharing – I’m so excited to make bread for the first time, and I’ve never heard of a baking cloche!!
Love your baking and hope I win!! Thanks for sharing your amazing food
I have enjoyed your method since I first accidentally stumbled upon your book in my public library. So easy, yet so rewarding.
Zoe I just think you’re the best! Love your videos and would love to win this giveaway!!
So glad I stumbled upon your IG account! Your tutorials are priceless and you have a fun easy going personality too!
This bread looks so delicious. I know it would be great with a cup of coffee.
This is a lovely package. Thanks to your books I have gone from new to bread(with dense loaves) to inventing my own recipes.
Joining the contest! Want to learn the art of bread making!
I’ve always been too scared to try at home bread baking, but this makes it seem so easy! Love it!
Yay thanks for the opportunity! Im drooling at your photos and would love to bake with a cloche! I have your book but would love to gift to a friend because it’s amazing!
Beautiful! I love how easy to add the raisins and pecans by the shaping/kneading method. Anxious to try it!
Scanning through by blog feed this morning, I saw in the title with “raisin” and “bread” and was about to hit delete, not being a fan of raisin bread. Then I saw it was one of your posts and had to check it out. Your posts are always fun to read and filled with great photos of beautiful food. Same for this one, almost enough to make me a raisins in bread convert. 🙂 Anyway, thanks for recipe share and lovely pics as always!
This looks incredible! I absolutely love all of your recipes and baking inspiration, hoping to put some to use for the holiday season. Thanks, Zoe!!
Oh my gosh, I have failed at bread so many times but I want to keep trying. I didn’t know these products existed! Your bread looks so good! Thanks for always sharing your recipes and knowledge Happy Birthday to a fellow Scorpion (Nov 10).

I purchased all three of your bread baking books last year. So fabulous to have one batch of dough ready to make the Christmas morning monkey bread, panettone (I’m Italian) and Julekage (my husband’s Norwegian).My twins have been assembling the monkey bread sine they were 3 or 4 years old. It was make them part of preparing for Christmas. I enjoy following your stories from the neighboring state of Wisconsin where I bake as much as possible! Would love the prize package!

Breads are one of my favorite things to make with our kids. They help us make it, and watchinh it rise, they have a feeling of accomplishment, as though the impossible was done. They love it. The hard part if keeping them from deflating it!!

I just found your website. I saw your apple galette on the JK Adams site. Can’t wait to get into it.
Love reading about your method and would love to have an Emile Henry Cloche. I recently used an EH covered bread baker using a recipe suggested for it The recipe did not tell me to remove the top before baking and the crust stuck to the top of the pan. I ended up with decapitated bread. I guess I made guillotined French bread.
Would love to further my love of bread!
I’ve always wanted do something with Pecans and the bread seems to hit the spot this season!
The bread looks yummy! I’ll give it a try
Everything you make is so beautiful and looks so good. Thank you for sharing this wonderful package and for always inspiring.
Love your recipes.
Love this cloche!
I got your holiday breads book and making my first recipe from it tonight! Really excited about this giveaway!
I so love the idea of a big bucket of dough that you can dip into for a different loaf every day. Every day is a good day for fresh baked bread.
Get in my belly! I love raisins!
Your baking is a true work of art. It has inspired me to reach for that true artisan level of baking.
I had no idea you had a gluten free book out! So excited to add it to my collection. <3
I’d love your book, I want to up my bread game!
Looks good and tasty!
I love your holiday baking cookbook and make the brioche dough so often! And I LOVE Emile Henry crockery. Can’t wait!
