MAKING BY HAND
Place the bread mix into a bowl.
Add water, honey, egg and oil and make up the dough following instructions on the pack.
After kneading and stretching for two minutes, blend the roughly chopped pecan nuts through the dough prior to the five minute rest.
Mould into required shape, place in a warm, greased bread tin (2lbs), cover with a damp tea towel; lightly oiled plastic or polythene and leave to rise in a warm place for 40-50 minutes or until doubled in size.
Remove the cover before baking.
This enriched dough is baked at 220° (425°F, Gas Mark 7) on the lower shelf of preheated oven for 30 minutes or until golden brown.
When baked remove from tin and cool on a wire rack.

Add all other ingredients to the bread maker container.
Place the container in the bread maker unit and ensure it is correctly clipped in place.
Set the machine to the appropriate programme and switch on.
When the finished signal sounds remove the bread carefully and cool on a wire rack.
“I would just like to say how wonderful your new cakes mixes are and so easy and quick to mix and bake. I have so far only tried the ginger and the toffee one (both delicious) but hope to try the others soon. The finished cakes keep well for several days too. Thank you for such a splendid idea. I am buying the mixes from a local wholefoods store in Northampton, called Daily Bread. ”Rachael Robinson
