1-LB. LOAF

1 teaspoon active dry yeast
2 cups bread flour
teaspoon lemon peel, dried
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons sugar
1 egg
1 tablespoons butter
cup milk, warmed
1 ounces warm water
3 tablespoons almonds, chopped
2 tablespoons raisins


Method

If your machine has a mix cycle the almonds and raisins can be added at the beginning or at the mix beep. They can also be added towards the end of the mixing process. Because this bread is an extremely high rise, a 1-pound loaf will easily fill a large bread-machine bucket. Test the small recipe first to see how the loaf rises in your machine. Follow manufacturer's directions on loading.

NOTES: This delightful bread is great for parties and celebrations. The raisins and nuts give it a festive flavour and texture that's hard to beat.
