Apple, Sultana and Cinnamon Bread Recipe | Homestead Life

It is that time of year again where I find myself using cinnamon in more things than usual. 

This time I used it together with sultanas and apples to create a new bread recipe which tastes amazing. I adapted a basic bread recipe that I use with my bread maker to create this spiced fruit loaf that all my family now love. I can't believe I've never thought to try this combination before. 

When we tried it it instantly reminded us of one of our old favourite breakfast treats, Cinnamon and Raisin Bagels. We don't buy these anymore due to the cost, not that we would need to again now we have this recipe! 

I used my trusty bread maker to make this loaf. I put all the ingredients in, chose program 1, which is usually for 'soft bread' and hoped for the best. I'm pleased to say that is exactly what it delivered. 

The ingredients I used to make a 750g loaf were: 

Mrs Betty's Apple, Sultana and Cinnamon Loaf 

140g Strong White Bread Flour
200g Wholemeal Bread Flour 
5g Instant dried yeast 
7g Sugar
7g Salt
20g Butter
1 egg
200ml Warm water 
100g Sultanas 
1 Apple (peeled and finely chopped) 
1 tsp Cinnamon 

I put all the ingredients into the bread maker, chose program 1, designed for 'soft bread' and opted for the light crust. Left it running and on my return I found a wonderful looking loaf. As you can see in the photo above, when cutting the first slice it looked like the sultanas has mostly sunk to the bottom. Thankfully the rest of the loaf had a good even distribution and was delicious. 

If you like me and my family enjoy cinnamon bagels then I would highly recommend giving this bread recipe a try. We enjoyed it simply with some butter. It is lovely and soft and very yummy. Let me know if you give this recipe a try, I'd love to hear what you think.
