How to make it

  • Dissolve the yeast in a big bowl with porter, beer, oil and molasses
  • Melt the butter with the spices and salt. Let it cool a little (it shouldn't feel hot when you put your finger in it) before adding to the yeast mixture
  • Mix in the raisins and flour a little at the time and work the dough slowly (by hand or y machine) until it's soft and elastic
  • Let the dough rise in the bowl to twice its size under a cloth
  • Turn on the oven to 200 C / 400 F / Gas mark 6
  • Make 2 loaves of bread, put them in an oven pan and let rise under a cloth for 1 hour
  • Bake for about 50 minutes, but lower the temperature to 150 C / 300 F / Gas mark 2 after 15 minutes
  • Let the loaves cool on a wire tray under a clean cloth

    So I am very curious as to where you find the ground bitter orange? I have been looking all over for it. Anyone know who sells it?
