    Mysterygirl's Note:

    This is in response to a request on the boards for an Amish fruit bread...this is the closest I found. It comes from an old community cookbook, the proceeds of which went towards the preservation of Hermann, Mo's German Heritage. Note that the fruit must be soaked over night and I haven't added that into the times here.

      A Very good fruit bread, I just finished eating a slice it was still warm.Yum. This recipe is very time consuming, But I belive it is worth. It makes 4 nice sized loaves, Nice for a large family or to give as gifts. I cut the fruit all up before soaking. The baking time was perfect, I covered the loaves with foil to keep from over browning. Thank you Mystergirl for posting the recipe.
