Servings 1 loaf


  • 200 ml water
  • 340 g strong white bread flour
  • 50 g S&P Currant Bun mix
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp caster sugar
  • 20 g butter
  • 2.5 tsp S&P Even-Rise Dried Yeast
  • 15 g S&P Flour Booster
  • 150 g raisins or currants
  • optional for glaze:
  • 25 g butter melted


  • Start by greasing the loaf tins of your choice.
  • Pour the water into the bread maker pan, and sprinkle in the flour and S&P Currant Bun mix. Then add the salt, sugar, butter, S&P Flour Booster, and S&P Even-Rise Yeast.
  • Set the bread maker to the dough setting and let the cycle run. 5 minutes before the cycle is complete, add in the raisins. Alternatively, you can knead them in by hand. Once completed, remove the dough from the machine and place on a lightly floured surface, kneading it with your hands for a minute. 
  • Divide and shape the dough. Aim for uniform rolls by weighing each piece to 60g and shaping it into balls. Alternatively, shape the dough into loaves or any desired shape.
  • Place your shaped dough into a baking tin and cover with cling film, then let it rise for an hour or until doubled in size. (This dough rises slower than others.) Preheat the oven to 160°C during this time.
  • Bake the risen bread in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes until the top turns slightly golden.
  • Remove from the oven and brush immediately with the extra butter (melted) should you want to glaze the top. Let the bread cool completely before removing from the tin. Enjoy!
