    Barb, another great recipe of yours! I wanted you to know that this does not taste anything like my grandmother's julekage, IT TASTES BETTER!!!! It is so incredibly soft and full of flavor. I cheated and used my breadmaker, adding the citron and raisins as per my breadmaker instructions (after the beep) It makes the best toast too! Going to make a second loaf today. This will go in my Best of Zaar So Far cookbook. PS. Photo shows bread without glaze--it is a lot prettier with glaze. Maybe I can do another photo before the bread is gone! KCShell
