    3 hours 5 minutes

    This is a great recipe for the bread machine, no fuss at all. Sultana bread is great toasted with just a little butter for a real treat.

    Serves: 12 

    • 1 cup warm water (45 degrees C)
    • 1 1/2 tablespoons butter or lard
    • 2 teaspoons dried active baking yeast
    • 1/2 cup sultanas
    • 440g bread flour
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

    Preparation:5min  ›  Cook:3hours  ›  Ready in:3hours5min 

    1. Place the ingredients in the bread machine pan in the order suggested by the manufacturer. Select the Basic or White Bread setting. (There is no need to select Fruit Bread setting, nor to add the sultanas in later.) Start the machine. After the first knead, the bread should be smooth, elastic and dry to touch. Adjust if necessary with additional flour.
    2. After baking, remove the pan immediately and rest bread for 10 minutes. Remove the bread from the pan and cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes before serving.

    Altered ingredient amounts. The only thing I changed was that I used wheat bread flour. I also doubled the sultanas because I love them so much! The recipe is extremely easy with minimal ingredients and great taste! I really enjoyed the bread! Thanks for the recipe!  -  14 Jul 2008


    I can't even give this recipe a star. There has to be something missing from the recipe. I've made it twice thinking the first time that my yeast was bad. I bought new yeast. It doesn't rise and is yucky when it is baked. Sorry, but I won't waste my ingredients on it again until someone tells me what is missing.  -  14 Jul 2008


    Altered ingredient amounts. My husband, who can be picky,loved it! I had to add more yeast for my bread machine. What I liked best...low sugar, low fat, and still tastes terrific!  -  14 Jul 2008
