Raisin / Fruit Bread

    I really like this recipe, I'm about to make it for the second time tomorrow. It's easy to vary to your taste.

    Last week when I made this I used half wholemeal bakers flour, added 2 tablespoons each of hemp seeds and chia seeds (bit of added nutritients for my family). I used a combo of dried cherries, sultanas and dried apricot. I slice and froze half the loaf and it was great toasted from frozen.

    When I make this tomorrow I will double the spices and increase the fruit to 200g as we like spices and more fruit.

    Thanks for an easy recipe that can be easily varied to suit your taste.

    Agree with all the comments. Wonderful recipe that you can play around with the flour type or fruit amount or spices you add. Looking forward to trying different items for future loaves. So moist and taste is beautiful. Thank you

    Is it meant to be dense or fluffy? Mine is quite dense. Am I doing something wrong?

    So amazing. Both fresh and toasted. Will be making again and again.

    Amazing simple recipe. My kids 5 and 8 can't get enough up to my 5th loaf on 2 weeks. I do add 200 to 250 grams of sultanas and sometimes diced apple or pear if it's about to go bad!

    Thank you for the lovely recipe! I have been trying recipes for this bread with no success. I added extra 50g sultanas and doubled the spices. I baked in a 680g bread loaf tin and used my jumbo lid. Just before baking I added 10 iced cubes to a small baking tray and placed on lower shelf. I also sprayed the oven with water before quickly putting bread in. I cooked for 35 minutes then removed loaf from tin and for another 5 minutes on wire rack to crisp up bottom a bit.

    Lovely fruit loaf. My second time making it I doubled the sultanas and cinnamon and mixed spice. Perfect for me!

    This is amazing! Huge hit for the family. Kids love it cut in slices and toasted or fresh from the oven. I use 20g extra raisins
