Irish barmbrack bread

Yield: 1 servings

Measure Ingredient
1⅛ cup Water
3 cups Bread flour
3 teaspoons Gluten
1½ teaspoon Salt
3 tablespoons Sugar
¾ teaspoon Dried lemon peel
¾ teaspoon Ground allspice
1½ tablespoon Butter
2 tablespoons Dry milk
2 teaspoons Red Star Active Dry Yeast
¾ cup Raisins


Put all ingredients in bread pan in order of manufacturer directions.

This makes a dense medium size loaf (6-7 inches tall). For a fluffier taller loaf, increase yeast to 2 ½ teaspoons.

Have ingredients at room temperature. If necessary, warm water and butter in microwave for 50-60 seconds on high.

For my Hitachi 101 add ¼ cup raisins 4 minutes into first cycle.

Add remaining raisins just after resting period and as second kneading begins.

Crust color: medium Bread Cycle: Bread or Mix Bread This has been a successful loaf in my Hitachi B101. Other makes of bread machines will have to make some changes according to their own machines.

According to a close Irish friend, this does taste and look like the bread that she grew up with in Ireland.
