  5. Add flour, milk, egg, marmalade and cinnamon to soaked fruit mixture. Stir until combined.
  6. Spoon dough into the prepared loaf pan.
  7. Bake until bread is brown and crusty and wooden pick inserted near center comes out clean, about 2 hours.
  8. Cool slightly. (Can be prepared up to 4 days ahead. Wrap tightly and store at room temperature.)
