  • 275 ml (9 fl oz) water
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 large mild fresh red chilli, halved, deseeded and finely chopped
  • 300 g (10 oz) strong white bread flour
  • 150 g (5 oz) strong wholemeal flour
  • 1 teaspoon caster sugar
  • 1¼ teaspoons fast-action dried yeast
  • 50 g (2 oz) sun-dried tomatoes in oil, drained and roughly chopped (optional)

Lift the bread pan out of the machine and fit the blade. Put the ingredients, except the sun-dried tomatoes, in the pan following the order specified in the manual.

Fit the pan into the machine and close the lid. Set to a 750 g (1½ lb) loaf size on the basic white programme. Select your preferred crust setting. Add the sun-dried tomatoes (if using) when the machine beeps.

At the end of the programme lift the pan out of the machine and shake the bread out on to a wire rack to cool.
