Ingredients

3 pkg. yeast (regular requires two risings before shaping into loaves - Instant requires only one) (one type of yeast is mixed in with the
flour and not with water so read yeast packet)
1 cup hot water
1 tsp. sugar
1 cup milk
8 beaten eggs
liquor to taste
1 tsp. lemon rind
3 oranges (rind only)
1 cup melted butter
1 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. salt
6 to 8 cups approx. flour
1/8 tsp. nutmeg


Let yeast dissolve in hot water and sugar for about 10 minutes or until frothy. Meanwhile put all the other ingredients in a large bowl along with about 5 cups of the flour. Add the yeast. Add enough of the remaining flour to make the dough not sticky to manage. Form into a ball. Butter a bowl and place the ball of dough in it and rotate it so that the dough is coated with the butter on all sides. Cover with a towel (or plastic wrap) and place in a warm place to rise until double in size. If using Instant yeast at this point punch down and shape into loaves. If using regular yeast then punch the dough down and let rise once again until doubled and then shape into loaves. Place dough in loaf pans and let rise until doubled in size. Bake in a 350 degree oven for approximately one hour. Baste with a mixture of sugar and milk every 15 minutes until loaves are done.

Notes

This is an Italian Easter Bread. Each year my hubby and I make this and have to save some to bring to our grown kids who don't live in the same city. It freezes well.
