  2. Add the Dried Fruit to a bowl and squeeze over the juice of the Orange, leave to soak for at least 30 minutes then drain and reserve the juice.
  3. Add the reserved juice to a measuring jug then add the Chickpea Brine then enough warm water to bring it to 250ml/1 cup. Stir in the Maple Syrup and Pumpkin oil then add to the dry ingredients and use clean hands or a wooden spoon to bring it together into a dough then work in the Dried Fruit.
  4. Knead for 5-10 minutes by hand or machine until the dough is smooth, supple and stretchy. The dough should be soft but not sticky or dry – add water or flour a teaspoon at a time to adjust if necessary.
  5. Cover the bowl with a clean tea towel and leave to rest in a warm place for 30-60 minutes or until double in size. Knock back the dough and place it inside a 2lb greased loaf pan and again cover and leave to rise for another 20-30 minutes.
