Marmalade , dried sour cherries and oat bread. For BREAD MACHINE .

 If you have an electric Bread Machine I implore you to make the loaf. I have given this recipe to many people and everyone loves it. It is similar to a fruit loaf only has  more background flavour and more substantial because of the oats. Beautiful toasted. 

Inspiration for this recipe is from ‘ Bread Machine Magic’ by Linda Rehberg, Lois Conway. I have adapted the recipe to Australian conditions. I downloaded the Book from Kobo, a reading platform.
