Using the dough hook on a stand mixer, knead until the dough until comes together and achieve window pane stage (when stretch the dough you should be able to see thin membrane). It takes around 15 minutes. Add the dried fruits after 10 minutes. If the dough is too dry, add 1 tablespoon of fresh milk or water at a time. Some bread flour absorbs more water.
