This is yeast bread that has a prune filling. I am not sure of the name in Czech. It rises overnight in refrigerator. It is a very old recipe that uses lard or butter but I listed butter. Libbie put lard in her recipe so I am guessing that is what she used. If any one knows what this is called in Czech please food.com mail me so I can add it. Another one of Libbie's recipes. this makes a HUGE amount i think you could do half and be ok im guessing these are like a christmas kinda bread but i dont know for sure it makes a soft fine grained bread
