Chris says: This easy to makebread recipe can help you make four different types of bread - or even more if you want to experiment!

Nothing beats the taste and smell of fresh bread, and we bake a lot of this in our house.

You can also try these other exciting variants if you like:
Peanut-Prune Bread
Add 1/2 to 2/3 of a cup of chopped prunes to the milk and egg mixture and let it stand for a few minutes before adding it to the bread mix (if you try this variant, you should also sift 1/2 teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda with the dry ingredients)
Peanut-Orange Bread
Mix in 1/2 cup of orange marmalade with the milk and egg
Peanut-Banana Bread
Mix 1/2 cup of mashed bananas with the beaten egg and milk
