I made a couple of fruity white spelt loaves and they were very tasty. They rose well, much better than I expected, the crust was good, the crumb was soft and not too spiced, and the fruit was well distributed.
I use a Panasonic breadmaker with both a yeast and raisin dispenser. I used 500g of Doves Farm White Spelt flour on the spelt programme (#16 Specialty Raisin) with 1.75tsp Doves Farm yeast, 1tbsp sugar, 2tbsp dried skimmed milk powder, 1.5tsp salt, 25g unsalted butter, 340ml water plus 2.5tsp mixed spice and 150g mixed fruit (incl cranberries and apricot). An earlier loaf had 125g of normal mixed fruit and only 1.5tsp yeast, but I wanted to see if I could increase the fruit content. (For reference the official breadmaker recipe only has 10g butter, no DSM, and 1.25tsp yeast, but I like butter and milk in my loaves.)

I made this today. Used the dough setting on my bread machine, but baked in the oven. I’m very pleased with how it turned out.

Have just baked this loaf and it is the softest and tastiest white loaf I’ve had from my bread machine yet!
This will now be a firm favourite in this household.
