This recipe is similar to the regular gluten free white bread we did in the breadmaker but we tweaked it to make it into a fabulous gluten free fruit loaf. Fruit bread is fabulous with a good slab of butter, especially fresh out of the breadmaker or toasted, a deliciously fruity breakfast full of flavour.

This recipe is for a bread maker only

1. Beat together the soya milk, cyder vinegar, oil and eggs in a jug and pour into the bread maker pan.

2. Sift together the flour, salt and sugar and pour on top of the wet ingredients.

3. Sprinkle the yeast, fruit and spice on the top and close the lid.

4. For the best results we found a standard setting worked better than a gluten free setting therefore this recipe will work in all bread makers. Choose a basic setting, if you have the choice on your machine, select a medium sized loaf with a medium crust colour. The optimal time needed to cook is 3 hours 15 mins to 3 hours 30 mins. Once setting are done, start the machine.

5. Check after a few minutes of cooking and gently push the dough away from the sides using a spatula, after this close the lid and leave the machine to it until finished.

6. Once cooked remove from the machine, remember to remove the blade from the centre of the bread (thats what caused the hole in the top of ours!),and slice.

Normal milk can be used in place of soya milk if you don't want the bread dairy free

Baked it this morning as it looked delicious and it didn't turn out too bad. The smell of it baking was lovely but was rather disappointed that the top had sunk in the
pan. Also next time I would use a light crust as it was quite dark and crispy on the
outside. I would give it 3-4 stars. 5 stars had it not sunk but would bake it again.

My pacific compact breadmaker PB-001 only has three settings. the longest cycle is the whole wheat setting and this takes 100 mins. I long to have a decent loaf of bread that is gluten free without the after taste of zanthum gum. I find shop bought gluten free bread has poor taste. Will my 100 min cycle in the breadmaker be enough for this interesting fruit loaf.

100 mins should be fine, my normal setting is around 110 mins which is what I use to make bread.

I made this today. I used basic setting, as recommended. Really happy with the result. I did have a little trouble getting out of pan, so think I will lightly grease next time.
