Winter Fruit Loaf

1 hour


Full of juicy sultanas, currants and orange peel with mixed spices, this delicious homemade loaf is a real treat for this winter.  Simply toasted and served with your favourite spread, or try it with honey for a melting, mouth watering treat.

This recipe works very well in the breadmaker too!
