Anyone for hot bread?

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
I'm using the bread machine for the first time. Even though weve had it a few years, mum usually makes her own flavoursome things. So i'm making a fruit nut loaf, is rising atm but in two hours you can all have some (i didn't even follow instructions of the machine lmao)

This recipe i found for the oven but im using the the machine, so milk should be warm if you are NOT using a bread making machine
if you're interested it has:
375gm plain flour
60gm soft brown sugar
pinch of salt
1/4tsp cinnamon
1/4tsp nutmeg
1/4tsp ginger
1/4tsp all spice
15gm dry yeast
150ml milk
60gm butter (melted)
225gm mixed diced fruit of your choice (i used dried pear, apricot & date)
125gm nuts (they say pecans, but i had none, i used sliced almonds)
I also added a little fresh honey and strawberry sauce (not jam or the ice cream topping, but a jar i purchased from a real strawberry farm )


If you wish to add a glaze once it's cooked, use 150ml of milk and 6tbs sugar. Warm up on the stove till sugar melts, make sure it doesn't burn. Brush over the loaf.

I hope it works


Do you guys have any special bread/cake/muffin bakey recipes that you invented, or one that is your favourite from a book or passed down the family?

I love making bread - I got a breadmaker for my birthday so I had lots of fun making bacon and cheddar bread for family members. My brother's girlfriend ate a lot of it. I hope she doesn't blame me for any weight gain!

I don't eat much of my own bread because I was told that one slice equals four slices of normal bread.

I used to always bake it when i lived with my ex bf and i had a bread maker.
My parents ended up taking it with them to Italy, and when i got there last weekend i asked them why they werent using it? They thought i took it again because they hadnt opened all the boxes Silly duffas! I had to remind them i only took the fryer!

Making your own bread is soo good I might do that today and make rolls then freeze them

My parents had a bread maker, but after mom died I sold it for $20. Now I'm kicking myself! I'm having major cravings! Ummm...how long until Christmas?? Maybe if I'm REALLY good, Santa will bring me one.

I don't have a bread maker yet but I love the smell and taste of warm bread with butter! My favorite is potato dill. MMMMMM

Oh, that sounds just decadent! I will indeed try that sometime.

I do have two breads I love to make: one is just a plain white bread recipe, but I pat it out into a rectangle and spread it with a mixture of butter, parmesan, and a touch of sage... then dampen the edges, roll it up, and bake it with a sprinkle of parmesan across the top. It's great with any pasta, especially fettucine alfredo.

The other is my all-time favorite bread in the world: again, just a standard white bread recipe, except that I replace the liquid with warmed chianti, then mix in a lot of chopped walnuts before forming the loaf. Sometimes I add chunks of Swiss cheese, too!

Oh my. Now I'm going to be up half the night baking. Thanks a whole lot, Dragoriana!

The bacon and cheddar bread that I made last night didn't last 5 minutes. It was so good to eat hot with melted butter.
