Milo Loaf with Cranberries, Raisins and Chia Seeds Using Philips HD9045 Breadmaker

October 09, 2015 4 Comments A+ a-

I was a little bored with my easy but predictable milk bread (recipe here) and decided to rummage through the kitchen to see what I could experiment with for a new flavour of breakfast loaf.

Having found a tin of milo, dried cranberries, raisins and chia seeds, I came up with my milo loaf. Soft and fluffy. Wheeee! We loved how the loaf was also nutrition packed. A recipe for keeping and sharing :) 

Nevertheless, if you are big on taste and are looking for a chocolatey loaf, the cranberries and raisin can overpower the taste of the milo powder. Hence, I will recommend that you can add chocolate chips and nuts instead. And of course, use the best chocolate powder that you have too!

Note: I use the Philips Breadmaker HD9045. Please adapt to suit your machine if you are using other brands :)

Milo Loaf with Cranberries, Raisins and Chia Seeds
Yields 750g loaf

260g milk
40g butter
5g salt
25g sugar
5 tsp milo powder
300g bread flour
50g top flour
1 tsp yeast

4 tbs oats (I use Quacker instant oats)

chocolate chips, etc

1) Put all ingredients in (A) into the baking tin, in the above sequence.

2) Use Setting 2 (Rapid white bread mode), Light crust, 750g. 

3) After knead 1, you will notice that the dough will still be a little wet. Add in the oats.

4) A beep sound will be heard midway around knead 2. Drop in your preferred dried fruits and nuts, i.e. ingredients (C) at this point.

5) After 2h 45min, the milo loaf will be ready. Enjoy!

Still not sure if you want to bake this loaf? 

Here's one baked by Alice Ng! She added extra chocolate chips and crushed Oreo bits. Yummy!

Hi, I just bought the bread maker, not sure how to use it yet. But your recipes are really helpful for me to want to get started.

Just checking, how do you know when it is knead 1? Is there a beep sound?
Do you need to press the stop button in order to add in oats or we can just open like that?

Will opening and closing cause the dough to collapse as stated in instrctution manual?

Thanks! June

Hi June, congrats on buying the breadmaker! The words stating which stage the bread is baking will be reflected on the small screen. I try not to open and close too many times. But if you do a quick open-and-close, it's usually fine. Have fun and let us know how your loaves turn out! :)
