Breadmaker Raisin Loaf Recipe

After the successful maiden attempt at making our own bread using my new breadmaker, I baked another loaf of basic bread and am happy that it turned out very well too. Last night, I tried baking raisin loaf using sweet bread recipe.

Ingredients for 700g of Sweet Bread:
270ml water
2 tbsp oil
1 tsp salt
3 tbsp sugar
1 1/2 tbsp milk powder
3 cups flour
1 tsp breadmaker yeast

Refer to the above picture for the setting of my breadmaker in case you need to know.

Followed by flour. Since I get enquiries for the flour that I used, I might as well post up the picture here. 

Organic flour for bread

I used organic strong white bread flour.

Lastly add breadmaker yeast. I’m also going to show you the yeast I used as many readers asked me what is breadmaker yeast.

This is breadmaker yeast.

Press START and the breadmaker will immediately start kneading. Total time for this sweet bread is 2 hours 55 minutes.

25 minutes after pressing START, the breadmaker will beep during the 2nd knead, signalling me to add in the raisins. I added half a cup of raisins.

When the entire house is filled with the aroma of freshly baked bread, I know my bread is ready. What I like about my breadmaker is it has a clear screen so I can peak into it while it is baking :D

Next morning, I sliced my loaf of bread using my new bread knife to see this beautiful raisin loaf. It’s too easy. Just a touch of a button and we get freshly baked raisin loaf. I’m so into bread making mode. The boys will be eating a lot of breads these days. LoL!

I noticed that I’ve not use fresh milk for the breads that I baked. I like using fresh milk when baking rice cooker cakes as it gives more moisture to the cakes. I’m wondering if it will give the same effect to my breads? Hmm… I think I’ll try to add fresh milk into my next bread and see how it turns out. Stay tuned :D

I tried adding fresh milk. Using the exact recipe as the above but instead of using 270ml of water, I used only 120ml water + 150ml fresh milk. I also use 2 cups breadflour + 1 cup self-raising flour. The outcome is a more moist and softer bread. I personally like this version better :D

    So nice, economical and convenient to own a breadmaker. I have been thinking to get one but never get down to it. Hehe.

    Expect more healthy breads and bakes from you. ;)

    Fresh milk to make your bread will make it very, very tasty!

    I actually tried it and am pleased to say that I love the result. The bread is more moist and softer. I’ll definitely add fresh milk in my future bakes :D
