“This is a great bread for tea at Christmas time when you don't like to make fruitcake. It is an old recipe that belonged to my mother, and really good.” - by Carol
Original recipe yields 1 - 8 x 3 inch loaf
- Grease an 8 x 5 inch loaf tin thoroughly. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
- In a small bowl, beat the eggs well. Add milk and melted butter or shortening, and mix well.
- Sift together flour, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon into a large mixing bowl. Add sugar, prepared fruits and nuts, and mix well. Add egg mixture to fruit and nut mixture, stirring just enough to blend. Turn batter into greased loaf tin. Let stand for 20 minutes.
