Gently heat the milk and butter together in a pan until the butter has melted. Leave to cool until just warm, then whisk in the eggs and vinegar
Put the flour, yeast, salt, sugar, mixed spice, cinnamon and nutmeg in a large bowl, then stir to combine. Make a well in the middle and pour in the milk, butter and egg mixture, mixing thoroughly
Add the ginger, dried fruit and chestnuts, then mix again
Butter the loaf tin and scoop the dough into it, levelling the top. Rub a little oil on one side of a sheet of cling film. Place it oil-side down loosely over the top of the bread tin. Leave to prove at room temperature for 1 hour, or until the loaf has risen
Preheat an oven to 200°C/gas mark 6
Remove the cling film and bake the loaf for 35–40 minutes, or until golden and an inserted skewer comes out clean. Serve warm from the oven, or leave to cool before toasting and spreading with butter and jam or marmalade for breakfast
