One of the best things about a bread machine is the timer. Put all the ingredients in the bread machine tin in the evening, set the timer, press start and in the morning, you’ll wake up to a gorgeous aroma instead waking up to the stink of kitty puke.
It’s not very often I get round to doing this, but I did last night and woke up to a loaf of freshly baked cinnamon sultana bread. The recipe is from The Bread Machine Book and that recipe calls for raisins, but I prefer sultanas. The sultanas did get mushed up as my bread machine isn’t a posh one with a dispenser so they went in at the beginning with everything else. And yes, I know you’re not supposed to leave milk and butter in the machine all night but hey ho.
