Cinnamon, raisin and cranberry bread
Cinnamon, raisin and cranberry bread

Today adapted this recipe to make cinnamon, raisin and cranberry bread in the bread maker / bread machine.  This will be a regular around here in future.  I suspect that it would also be pretty darn good in a bread and butter pudding.


1 Cup water

2 Tbs (30 ml) sunflower oil

3 cups bread flour
3 tablespoons sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
2 1/2 teaspoons bread machine yeast
1/4 cup (60 ml) raisins
1/4 cup (60 ml) cranberries
1/4 cup (60 ml) sultanas


  1. Coat raisins, sultanas and cranberries in 1 Tbs flour
  2. Place all ingredients except raisins, sultanas and cranberries in bread machine pan in the order listed. Add raisins at the Raisin/Nut signal or 5 to 10 minutes before last kneading cycle ends.
  3. Select Sweet or Basic/White cycle. Use Medium or Light crust colour. Remove baked bread from pan and cool on wire rack.

  1. That looks good Sules

  2. Hi Sula, can you make ciabatta and french loaves in your bread maker. I have been toying with the idea of getting a bread maker to make ciabatta, but have no idea what they look like or if a ciabatta would work

    • Hi Dianne, I have made French loaves a few times for garlic bread, the dough is made in the machine then shaped into the long roll and baked in the oven. I imagine that ciabatta would be the same as in the machine makes the dough and bake in the oven. I haven’t tried but if you google ‘ciabatta bread machine / maker recipe’ there should be quite a few. I love my bread machine and use it on average 3 x per week but I know a few who have bought them and then they sit as white elephants.

  3. Thanks for the info Sula. I will give it some thought. It does seem a bit silly, considering, I try not eat bread as often as I used to. But having, just gone through a phase of making bread rolls and buying Ciabatta and French loaves again it might be nice to make them

  4. As the man in the house – I have really enjoyed baking bread in the Mellerware Ma Baker bread machine. I have especially loved playing around with the recipes. My favourite is using stone ground flour, (white or whole wheat) and adapting to include various herbs/ spices as well as a healthy handful of a mature cheddar or similar in the mix.

    I have also used the machine to make a reasonable Rye bread which is like a brick compared to the white or brown loaf – but is extremely tasty when toasted – it has a distinctive nut flavour. Enjoyed reading your posts and happy experimenting!
