16 oz white bread flour

1 sachet dried yeast

2 oz margarine or soya spread

2 oz demerara sugar

1 tsp ginger

1/2 tsp cinnamon

4 oz dried fruit e.g chopped dates, sultanas, raisins, chopped apricots

1/2 pint milk, either dairy or soya



Put all ingredients in a breadmaker in the order specified by your model and set to make dough. When dough mix is ready, turn out onto a floured board and knead lightly for a couple of minutes, then flatten out with palms of hands and use a scone cutter to make about 16 buns.

Put onto baking trays in oven, then turn oven to 180deg C and bake for about 20 minutes. NB not preheated oven, as while the oven warms up with the buns in, this helps the dough to rise well.
