Recipe by French Tart
A wonderful bread made in the bread machine for any time of the year - but it is especially delicious on Christmas Morning, and throughout the festive period. I always make my famous "The Day after Christmas Sarnies" - Sandwiches - with this bread! (That recipe is also posted on RecipeZaar) I find it difficult to get hold of fresh cranberries where I live, so this recipe uses dried cranberries, but I am sure it would work equally as well with fresh ones too.

I love this bread. It was the first and best one that I made in my new bread machine and I've made it several times since. I ran out of cranberries and tried it with cherries today and it's great. I'm a big cranberry fan, so I'll go back to them, but this is one of my all time favorite breads. Thanks so much for sharing it.
- 360 ml tepid water
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 3 teaspoons brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons nonfat dry milk powder
- 570 g strong white bread flour
- 7 g dried yeast
- 100 g dried cranberries
- 50 g walnut pieces
Directions See How It's Made
- Place all the ingredients, EXCEPT the walnuts & the dried cranberries, into your breadmaker in the suggested order; mine is wet first, then dry & then the yeast last.
- Put the walnut pieces & dried cranberries into the Extras tray - if your breadmaker does not have an Extras tray, add them manually in the last knead.
- (Also, if your breadmaker's slot for Extras is small, add some of them by hand when the Extras tray opens!).
- Bake on White 2lb Rapid Medium crust OR White 2lb Normal Medium crust with the Extras setting if your bread maker has it.
- When the bread has finished baking, remove from the breadmaker carefully, with oven gloves, and allow to cool on a cooling rack.
- Remove the paddle BEFORE slicing, if it has remained in the bread.
- Great with: Cold Meats, Cheeses, Salads & Cream Cheese and also made up as my famous Christmas Sarnie(Sandwich)!
