  • Heat for 4 Hours
  • Serves – up to 4 members

  • 400g of powerful bread flour (white)
  • 1½ teaspoons of easy baking yeast
  • 3 tablespoons of light muscovado sugar (unrefined)
  • 1 tablespoon of salt
  • 4 teaspoons of Cinnamon ground

The procedure: adjust to bake mode


Blend the flour, salt, sugar, mixed peels, cinnamon, yeast, sultanas, orange zest and raisins together in a bowl. Churn well to ensure an even dispersal of the yeast in the mixture. This is important as it allows for a nice rise in your baking.


Add to the bread maker pan. Take your beaten egg, mix it with water before adding to the pan.  Finally, take your melted butter and add.


Adjust your bread maker settings to a raisin bake and medium bread and switch on.


In the meantime, blend the glaze by making a hot sugar solution; stir it together with a pastry brush to await the arrival of a cooked loaf.


Churn the flour and sugar with water and make it ready by placing it into a thin-nozzle bag.


Once your loaf is ready, remove from the pan and instantly use the glaze to brush thinly. Take the topping and pipe it on for a cross or you can create a crisscross pattern to form multiple smaller crosses.


It is now time to enjoy your delicious meal – slice and smear with butter and you are set to go.
