    Default Recipe for very fruity fruit loaf?

    I am looking for a very fruity fruit loaf recipe for my breadmaker.

    I have dried mix fruit, sultanas, dried dates, almonds, dried apricots, a fair bit of white flour (but no wholemeal, and only maybe a cup or two of rye flour), and the other normal stuff like yeast, sugar, oil.

    but NO milk powder, which seems to be requested in a lot of recipes.

    the last one I made (with milk powder), all the fruit sunk to the bottom?

    There is one I sometimes buy from the markets which has huge pieces of fig and apricot and hazelnuts in it. It's amazing, and I'm sort of aiming for that effect.

    Any recipes would be appreciated as I'd like to make one tonight for tomorrow's breakfast.

    I ended up making one with 3 cups of plain flower, one cup water, 2 teaspoons of yeast, few tablespoons of soft brown sugar, lashings of spice and 2.5 cups of dried fruit, and 1/3 cup of halved almonds.

    It was tasty, but the the bread part was a bit rubbery. Maybe bread flower or oil would make it softer?

    My partner said it was like a fruit cake.
