Directions 

  1. Heat the milk just until lukewarm in a small saucepan over a low heat or in the microwave and then stir in the yeast and 2 teaspoons of caster sugar.  Set aside for 5 minutes until frothy. 
  2. Sift the flour, 1/2 cup sugar, spices and salt into a large bowl and make a well in the centre. 
  3. Pour in the milk mixture along with the butter, egg and the dried fruit. Mix with a knife until the mixture comes together to a dough.   
  4. Turn out and knead until smooth and elastic. 
  5. Wash and dry the mixing bowl and grease with a little butter. Place the dough in the bowl and cover. Place in a warm spot and leave for at least 1 hour or until doubled in bulk. 
  6. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Grease a roasting pan with a little butter. 
  7. Separate the dough into 16 balls.  Place these in the greased roasting dish all pressed up against each other on a cold baking tray. 
  8. Bake for 25 minutes until loaf feels crusty and cooked through. Allow to cool for at least 15 minutes on a wire rack. 
  9. Combine icing sugar and milk in a small bowl and drizzle over the lukewarm* loaf. Dust with cinnamon and serve. 

*the loaf should be only just slightly warm otherwise the icing will run off completely.
