    1. Combine the plain flour, wholemeal flour, ground cinnamon, nutmeg, powdered milk, salt, cranberries and pineapple. Add this mixture as you would normally add dry ingredients to your bread machine.
    2. Add all the ingredients to the pan of the bread machine in the order suggested by the manufacturer.
    3. Set your bread machine to Basic Loaf, and check to see that the dough forms a ball without excess moisture. You may have to add a little more flour, no more than a tablespoon, so that the dough forms a nice solid ball.

    I don't have a bread maker and just made the bread conventionally. I combined the water (warm), honey and yeast then added the rest. I let my mixer knead it and then baked at 350 degrees for about a half hour. I didn't have enough dried pineapple so I added some chopped dried apricots and I forgot the powdered milk. You can really taste the mace, so if you don't like that flavor, reduce it or leave it out. This bread is delicious--reminds me of what you can get at a bread store. YUM!  -  07 Nov 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    The pineapple gives this bread a wonderful rich moist texture. This is one of my favorite bread recipes!  -  30 May 2001  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
