Why I Love This Recipe

This is a sort of fruit cake but it is more like a cake than a fruit cake. It doesn't taste like a bread. Very good. I suppose that is as clear as mud.

Ingredients You'll Need

2 pkg. yeast
1/4 cup warm water
1 cup scalded milk
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup shortening
1 1/2 tsp. salt
4 - 4 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp. grd. lemon peel
2 beaten eggs
1 cup mixed diced candied fruit and peel


Soften yeast in the warm water. Combine milk, sugar, salt and shortening and cool to lukewarm.

Add 2 cups flour and the lemon peel.

Beat until smooth.

Add eggs, beat well.

Add yeast, fruit and peel and remaining ingredients to make a soft dough.

Cover and let rest for 10 minutes.

Knead on a floured surface for 6 to 8 minutes until smooth and elastic.

Place in a lightly greased bowl turning once to grease the surface.

Cover and let rise until double (2 hrs)

Punch down and divide in half.

Let rest for 10 minutes.

Shape into 2 balls.

Place on a greased cookie sheet.

Pat tops to flatten slightly.

Cover and let rise until almost double (2 hrs).

Bake at 350 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes.
