This is almost the same as the Christmas Bread my husband's mother makes. I usually make it in our bread maker for convenience, with the following adjustments:
Add liquids first, flour, then yeast on top. After first knead, add fruits. Bread makers tend to further chop up the fruits, so if you want big chunks you may want to knead them in by hand. Also, due to the warm milk and eggs, make immediately (vs delayed timer, which may cause spoilage). The last time I made it I mistakenly added too much sugar (2x), but it actually made the bread rise better.
Finally, if you don't like the candied fruits, try making it with other dried fruits (raisins, applies, apricots, cherries, etc.).
