  • 2 tablespoons espresso coffee powder
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 50 g (2 oz) unsalted butter, melted
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 350 g (11½ oz) strong white bread flour
  • 50 g (2 oz) light muscovado sugar
  • 1¼ teaspoons fast-action dried yeast
  • 75 g (3 oz) walnut pieces, lightly toasted

Blend the coffee with 150 ml (¼ pint) boiling water and leave to cool. Lift the bread pan out of the machine and fit the blade. Put the ingredients, except the walnuts, 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 sweet programme (or basic if the machine doesn't have a sweet setting). Add the walnuts to the pan 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.
