Favorite Healthy Bread Machine Recipes continued...

1 3/4 cups white flour or bread flour

1 1/2 teaspoon salt

2 teaspoons rapid rise or bread machine yeast

2/3 cup chopped dried mixed fruit or assorted glace holiday fruit

  • Add all the ingredients except yeast and dried fruit into the bread machine pan in the order recommended by the manufacturer. Make a well in the center of the flour and pour in the yeast. Select the DOUGH setting and press START.
  • Ten minutes before the end of the DOUGH cycle (set your kitchen timer), sprinkle the mixed fruit over the top of the dough. When the cycle is over, you might need to knead in whatever fruit hasn't been incorporated (it just takes a minute).
  • Shape dough into a round about 8 inches wide and 3 inches high, and place on a foil-lined or nonstick cookie sheet.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees while the bread rises in a warm place (cover with a towel if necessary). When double in size, bake until golden brown, about 30 minutes.
