This is a recipe I've made every Christmas for at least 25 years...oy! It's a kind of stollen with candied fruit and nuts....great for Christmas morning breakfast.
In bowl, soften yeast in warm water. In saucepan, scald milk
and pour into large bowl. Add butter, sugar, salt and cardamom. Cool to
lukewarm. Mix in eggs, about 3 1/2 cups flour, yeast mixture, almonds,
citron, candied cherries and pineapple. Stir in enough remaining flour
to make a stiff dough. Knead on well floured surface till dough is
smooth and elastic. Place in greased bowl; cover and let rise until
double (about 1 1/2 hrs.). Punch down, let rest 10 min. Divide into 3
equal parts and form each into a loaf. Place loaves on greased cookie
sheets and let rise again until double. Bake in 350 oven till golden
brown. Frost with powdered sugar frosting and decorate as desired.
