210ml water

1 tablespoon milk powder

1 egg beaten

2 tablespoons unsalted butter at room tempeature

½ teaspoon salt

2~3 teaspoons ground mixed spice

325g white bread flour

100g fruit and nut muselli

3 tablespoons caster sugar (I am trying to watch my sugar intake so only add 1 at the moment, still tastes lovely)

1½ teaspoon fast~action dried yeast

150g dried mixed fruit

40g dried cranberries

40g chopped pecans


  1. Put the water and beaten egg into the bread pan.
  2. If you have a separate compartment, put the pecans and cranberries in there, if not add when the raisin beep sounds.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix the dried mixed fruit, flour and muselli together ~ and then gently spoon over the water and egg.
  4. In separate corners, add the milk powder, butter, salt and ground mixed spice.
  5. Make a slight indent in the middle and add the sugar and yeast.
  6. Set your bread machine on a sweet setting with a medium crust.
  7. At the end of the programme, loosen the bread with a plastic spatula, turn onto a wire rack to allow to cool before slicing up.
  8. I have this bread for breakfast, but normally freeze it, so far it has kept for upto a week, not sure if it would keep for any longer as I alway use it before then.
