This is a wonderful fruity bread to make in the bread machine. It has a lovely flavour and the texture when toasted is incredible.
The recipe is excellent. It reminds me a lot of the christmas panettone but it's SO MUCH tastier. I just substituted the eggs with more milk and added more almonds and sultanas and it's fantastic - 05 Nov 2008 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
You MUST double the liquids if you want anything that resembles a bread dough! It tasted good and had nice texture and smelled so good baking. - 22 Jan 2007 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I twisted this a bit because I had fresh apples. Instead of milk, I used lemon yogurt. Instead of the raisins and almonds, I chopped up 3 small apples and 1/2 cup of pecans. Mixed the apples, pecans, 1/4 cup brown sugar, a small amt of lemon juice and 1/2 tsp vanilla with the cinnamon and only a dash of nutmeg. I waited until the bread was 1/2 raised, cut a deep hole in the center, stuffed the loaf with the fruit and pulled the dough over the top and turned off my machine to let it raise for about 45 min. Then turned it onto bake. It was wonderful. Very light, fluffy and the center was like a turnover. A little butter and honey to top it off. - 26 Sep 2015 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
