Buckwheat Fruit Bread

READY IN: 3hrs 40mins
Recipe by ellie_

Deliciously healthy bread which I adapted from Bread Machine Baking. Although I used raisins and dates when I made this bread, I think other dried fruit would also be delicious or even using only nuts.

Great recipe! This is a flavorful, moderately dense bread that's not too sweet. I used diced dried apricots, walnuts and flax seed. The only problem was that much of the fruit ended up stuck to the bottom of the loaf :( but that's probably my bread machine's fault. I used the machine's "mix" cycle, and added the fruit and nuts when it beeped, but while some were distributed through the loaf, there were a lot on the bottom. If I make it again, I'll probably pull the dough out and knead the fruit in by hand. But the flavor and texture of the bread is really excellent!
