Bread Makers have become very popular and if you are thinking of getting your own, I definitely  recommend model with the automatic dry ingredients dispenser. It comes very handy if you wish to set your machine to work overnight and wake up to a lovely smell of fresh and tasty bread.

This recipe is for my Panasonic Bread Maker SD-255 with Nut & Raisin Dispenser. If your bread maker doesn’t have the automatic dry ingredients dispenser, you can add starred (*) ingredients when your machine will “ask”  you to do so.

Panasonic Bread Maker SD 255

Here is the recipe for the Spicy Fruit Loaf.


  • 1 tsp Yeast
  • 400 g (14oz) Strong wholemeal flour
  • 2 tsp Sugar
  • 75 g (3oz) Butter
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 2 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1 tsp Mixed spice
  • 2 Medium eggs
  • 120 ml Water
  • 120 ml Milk
  • 150 g Mixed dried fruit *

Layer ingredients  in your bread maker in order listed above.  Set the ‘Whole Wheat‘, ‘Bake raisin‘ cycle .  Select the medium loaf size.

If your bread maker has different settings than Panasonic, here are the processes that my machine runs:

Rest 1 h – 1h 30 min. / Knead 15-20 min. / Rise 2 h 20 min.-2 h 50 min. / Bake 50 min. / TOTAL 5 HOURS
