  1. 1

    In a bowl, mix together the flour, yeast, sugar, salt, cinnamon, grated orange zest, mixed peel, raisins and sultanas.  Mix together well, otherwise the richness of the loaf will prevent the yeast being evenly dispersed and rising nicely.

    For this step you'll need:

    • 400g Very strong white bread flour
    • 1½tsp Easy bake yeast
    • 3 tbsp Unrefined light muscovado sugar
    • 1tsp Salt
    • 4tsp Cinnamon ground
    • 2 Orange zest
    • 50g Mixed peel
    • 50g Sultanas
    • 50g Raisins
  2. 2

    Add this to the pan in the breadmaker. Mix the beaten egg and water together and add to the bread pan then add in the melted butter.

    For this step you'll need:

    • 1 Egg(s) (free range) beaten
    • 175ml Warm water
    • 30g Butter (unsalted) melted
  3. 3

    Set to a programme for a “Medium” loaf and “Raisin Bake” on the breadmaker, and turn on.

  4. 4

    Meanwhile, mix up the glaze by combining the sugar with the hot water until the sugar is dissolved, set aside with a pastry brush, ready for when the loaf is cooked

    For this step you'll need:

    • 1 tbsp Unrefined golden granulated sugar
    • 1tsp Water cold
  5. 5

    To make the topping, mix the flour, sugar and water together, and have ready in a piping bag with a thin nozzle

    For this step you'll need:

    • 3 tbsp Plain white flour
    • 2tsp Unrefined golden granulated sugar
    • 2 tbsp Water cold
  6. 6

    When the bread is cooked, turn out of the pan, and immediately brush with the glaze thinly. Pipe the topping on in a cross shape, or alternatively in a crisscross pattern, making several small crosses.

  7. 7

    To serve, slice and spread with butter.
