"What a lovely bread to serve at Christmas time--visions of sugar plums. I make a lot of sweet breads at the holidays and my family enjoys them. Baking is one of my hobbies which I cherish dearly. Slivered almonds can be substituted for pine nuts." — Carol

warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)
2 (.25 ounce) packages
active dry yeast
candied mixed fruit
1 1/2 tablespoons
This was good. Not excellent though. I probably won't make it again -- just wasn't what I was looking for!
A nice light recipe, fruity and not too sweet. I used chopped almonds. I took it to work for a pot luck and it went fast.
I used honey instead of sugar, omitted the candied fruit, and used chopped dried pears to substitute for the raisins and candied fruit, and substituted sunflower seeds for the pine nuts. I made my own glaze recipe, and decorated with seasonal cherries. Delicious!
