DIRECTIONS

  • Dissolive 1 teaspoon sugar in warm water in large bowl.
  • Sprinkle in yeast, let stand 10 minutes, then stir well.
  • Add 1/2 cup sugar, melted butter, salt, lemon rind and 2 cups flour.
  • Beat with wooden spoon or electric mixer. (I use mixer with dough hook).
  • Add 2 cups more flour and eggs; beat 3 minutes.
  • Add enough of remaining flour to make a soft dough.
  • Knead dough on floured board until smooth and elastic (about 8 minutes.) (if using dough hook you may not need to.) Place in lightly greased bowl.
  • Turn dough to grease top, cover with towel or plastic wrap.
  • Let rise in warm place until doubled (about 2 hours).
  • Punch down.
  • Turn out on lightly floured board and knead in nuts and fruit.
  • Divide dough into 2 equal portions.
  • Shape into round loaves and place into well greased 8 inch round, deep, cake pans.
  • Cover with tea towel and let rise in warm place until doubled (about1 1/2 hours).
  • Bake 350 degrees for 35 to 45 minutes.
  • Cover with foil if browning occurs.
  • Remove from pans immediately.
  • Brush lightly with melted butter.
  • Can be iced with a powdered sugar icing.
