This is a Canadian or Northeast U.S. regional recipe as maple syrup is a major product for both. Baking time is however long your bread maker takes.
- 1⁄2 cup raisins
- 3⁄4 cup milk
- 1 tablespoon maple syrup
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1 egg
- 2 1⁄2 cups bread flour, plus
- 2 tablespoons bread flour
- 1⁄4 cup powdered sugar
- 1 tablespoon dried lemon peel or 1 tablespoon dried orange peel
- 1⁄2 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1 tablespoon cinnamon
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons yeast
- Place all ingredients into your Bread Machine, according to the manufacturer's directions.
- You may add the raisins after the beep if your machine allows it, to keep them from being torn up by the dough paddle.
It was pretty good bread, just wasn't what I was expecting. Think I'll stick to more cinnamony breads from here on out.
Overall a really good bread. I doubled the maple syrup (still wasn't very sweet) and used brown sugar in place of powdered sugar. I also used 1/4 C ground flax meal in place of 1/4 C of flour. And I only had a fresh lemon so I used that zest and it was good. I think orange zest would be better though. It's really good with cream cheese on it :)
WOW! This is the absolute best bread I've ever made in my bread machine bar none! Of course, there were tweaks. At DH's request, I added 1/2 cup walnuts along with the raisins, I doubled the amount of maple syrup, I used brown sugar instead of powdered sugar, and I substituted 1/2 cup of the bread flour with 1/4 cup flax seed meal and 1/4 cup unprocessed wheat bran. I also subbed 2 tbsp. wheat gluten for the additional 2 tbsp. bread flour, and I used fresh grated orange peel rather than the dried, which really added something special to the bread. Thanks for posting a really great bread machine recipe!
