Strong white bread flour 250g (9oz)

Place milk in a small bowl and warm in microwave for 15 seconds. Mix in yeast and 1 teaspoon sugar.
Put remaining sugar in a bowl with butter and cream together until pale and fluffy. Beat in eggs, one at a time, adding a little flour to prevent splitting if needed.
Add yeast mixture, a pinch salt and flour and mix with a knife for 10 minutes. Cover with oiled clingfilm and leave in a warm place for 2 hours or until doubled in size.
Add chocolate, fruit and orange extract and knead for 5 minutes.
Divide into 6 and place in a greased deep six-hole muffin tin. Re-cover with clingfilm and leave in a warm place for 1 hour.
Preheat oven to 180°C/160°fan/Gas 4. Bake for 20 minutes until risen and golden-brown. Cool on a wire rack.
