    Diana #2's Note:

    This was my very first attempt at bread and has become a constant in our house. This is one of those things that just says "Christmas", but good any time of year. Freezes well. Our son became the 'official' butter maker when he was only 4. Great fun and wonderful memories. NOTE: Prep time does not include 3-1/2 hours of rising time.

      Well, what drew me to this recipe was 'Sugar Plum' & I wasn't disappointed ~ This is a great 'bread!' I did, however, do a few things differently, since I used diced dried fruit instead of the candied kind, & I didn't shake up my own butter [got enough of that when I was a kid churning butter!]. Still, I like the idea of the homemade butter, & as soon as I can find a willing kid.... Anyway, the bread is extremely good & well worth making again & again! Thanks for this recipe!
