Made this Jumbo fruit loaf today to give to my father who loves raisin bread, this time with raisins instead of sultanas and it’s perfect. Made rolls instead of a second loaf and they’re amazing, so soft. Couldn’t find instant dried yeast in the supermarket so had to use active dried yeast. The only difference is you have to allow the yeast to activate in the liquid and sugar first( 2 mins, 40c, speed 3)it should foam on top when it’s activated, then add all the other ingredients and carry on with the recipe.
Made this fruit loaf ( link above ) by the same recipe creator for the burger buns ( Jumbo White bread ). It had to be good because her bread recipes are reliable and it is! Ooooh it’s actually too good so we have sliced the bread into breakfast portions, given some away and stored the rest straight into the freezer so we don’t eat it all at once. Even left out and eaten the next day it retained it’s freshness. Doesn’t need toasting it’s so delicious with just a spread of butter. Note for next time:- use raisins instead of sultanas.
