Ingredients

    1. 270 ml water
    2. 6 teaspoons butter or 6 teaspoons oil
    3. 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
    4. 6 teaspoons brown sugar
    5. 450 g white bread flour ( 3 cups)
    6. 6 teaspoons powdered milk
    7. 3 teaspoons ground mixed spice
    8. 2 teaspoons yeast
    9. 1/2 cup mixed dried fruit ( I use sultanas and raisins, but you could use commercial mixed fruit or currants)

    Gelatine Glaze

    1. 3 tablespoons water (optional)
    2. 6 teaspoons sugar (optional)
    3. 3 teaspoons gelatin (optional)

Directions

  1. Put all of the ingredients except the fruit in the order recommended by your manufacturer.
  2. If you have a nuts dispenser place the fruit in there.
  3. Otherwise add the fruit when the 2nd knead has 8 minutes to go.
  4. If using the glaze, combine glaze ingredients in a small saucepan over a heat until the sugar and gelatine has dissolved.
  5. Use the pause function if you have one, at fifteen minutes into the baking cycle, brush glaze over loaf.
