Christmas Bread 

2 Cups      Flour 1/2 cup     Sugar
1 1/2 t      Baking powder
1/2 t         Baking soda 
1 cup        Buttermilk can substitute it with milk ,add a few drops of lemon juice    and let it strand for 5 minutes. 
1              Egg  
1/4 cup     Butter,melted and cooled.
1/2 Cup   Candied orange peel 
1/2 Cup   Raisins and Black Currants
1 1/2 t     Mix Spice
1/2 t       Orange Zest
Heat the oven to 180C. Grease a standard 9x5 loaf pan.
Whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda in a medium bowl.  
In a separate bowl whisk butter with the buttermilk and the egg.
Pour the liquid ingredients over the dry ingredients.

Add raisins,currants,orange peel and mix spice.

Gently stir and fold the ingredients until all the flour has been incorporated and a wet batter is formed. Be careful not to over-mix.

Scrape the batter into the prepared pan and pat it into the corners. Bake for 40-45 minutes. When finished, the loaf should be domed and golden, and a toothpick inserted into the center should come out clean. Let the loaf cool in the pan for 15 minutes before removing and slicing.

PS: Any combination of fruits and peel can be used.
