This is how it's made Cranberry Apple Ginger Loaf

  1. Step 1

    Combine the dough ingredients flour, sugar, salt, yeast, eggs and water.  Using a stand mixer or in a large bowl beat the ingredients together to form a very soft dough.  Beat for 5 minutes until the dough starts to form strings in the dough.

  2. Step 2

    After beating, knead the dough for 10 minutes.  The dough will still be very sticky – grease your hands and the worksurface with a little oil to reduce sticking. Place the dough in a clean bowl, cover and rise for 1 hour.

  3. Step 3

    Gently knead in the fruits and ginger until evenly dispersed.  Split the dough into 3 and roll each into a ball.  Place into a greased 2lb loaf tin.  Cover and allow to rise for 2 hours until the dough almost reaches the top of the tin.  Brush well with egg wash.

  4. Step 4

    Bake (160c (fan)/180c/Gas Mark 4) in the oven for 40 minutes.  Once baked remove from the tin and allow to cool on a wire rack.

  5. Step 5
