A wonderful and fruity bread that I made in my bread machine - and it worked perfectly as well! Made for the Spelling Bee Tag topic in the Photos Forum - thanks for a superb recipe! FT:-)
A Christmas tradition in my house. I make this bread for friends and family to give away as gifts. Wrapped in a nice dish towel,this bread is always enjoyed.
