A fruity and aromatic spiced bread, with a distinctive orange taste and smell that is perfect toasted with and spread with butter. A lovely warming loaf that is perfect for even the fussiest of family members.
In a large mixing bowl add flour, sugar, orange zest, salt, Cinnamon, Nutmeg and Ginger finally adding the yeast and combining. Once these have been combined add the Flame Raisins, Cranberries, Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Water and Orange Juice and mix until it forms a loose ball. Turn out the dough mixture on to a work surface and proceed to kneed for approximately 10 minutes. Once all the ingredients are combined and the surface of the dough is slightly glossy, place into a lightly greased bowl, cover and place in a draft free area for one hour 30 minutes. Once the dough has roughly doubled in size knock it back and fold the dough into a oblong shape and add to a rectangular loaf tin, cover and let rise for another 1 hour. Pre-heat your oven to 160c (fan) or Gas Mark 4 for 20 minutes. Add the loaf into the middle of the oven and bake for 35 minutes, at which point loosely cover the bread with tin foil and bake for a further 15 minutes to stop the top overcooking. Remove the loaf from the tin and place on a wire rack until cool.
