    cups all purpose flour, divided

  • 1 1/2

    cups butter

  • 3/4

    cup sugar

  • 3

    eggs

  • 3/4

    tsp salt

  • 3/4

    tsp grated lemon zest

  • 1/2

    lb raisins

  • 1/2

    lb chopped blanched almonds

  • 1/2

    T butter, melted

Directions

Combine milk or water and yeast. Let stand 3-5 minutes. Add 1 cup flour; mix well. Cover and let rise in a warm place until light and foamy, about 1 hour. In a large mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar. Beat in eggs, one at a time. Add salt and lemon peel. Stir in the yeast mixture and enough remaining flour to form a soft dough. Knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place the dough in a greased bowl and cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour. Punch down dough; knead in raisins, nuts and fruit. Divide into two parts; roll each into a 15” x 8” oval. Fold each half lengthwise and place on a greased baking sheet. Brush with melted butter. Cover and allow loaves to rise until almost doubled in bulk, about 45 minutes. Bake at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on wire racks. Combine all glazed ingredients; brush on tops of cooled loaves.
