    That doesn't seem like enough water. Most recipes have 1 cup of water for 3 3/4 cups of flour. Also, when metric is requested the amounts should be in grams, not milliliters.

    Hi Mercy, I tried your recipe today. When I checked after the first kneading the dough was too hard. I cancelled the machine, broke up the loaf that was formed and added more liquid. Then I set the machine to start again at the beginning. Once baked it was a lovely loaf that I will certainly bake again. I have a 3 lb horizontal Kuradori bread machine from Home Hardware. I would substitute honey for the sugar, and add more fruit next time. Thank you for the recipe.
