  3. During the second kneading the machine will beep ten times to signal the addition of nuts and fruit.  Add the cherries, nuts and apple at this stage.
  4. When the loaf is ready, the machine will beep and the loaf tin can be removed using oven an glove, be careful as it is very hot. 
  5. Allow the bread to cool for 15 minutes before turning pan upside down and tapping the loaf onto a cooling rack.


*If you wish to make the muesli loaf but don't have a time-delay  function, add the dried fruit and nuts with the other ingredients, adding them last.
