How to Make Placek Swiateczny (Holiday Bread), Mark's


  1. Beat the eggs with the sugar for 5 minutes at high speed.
    Add to the butter by small portions
    Add vodka, vanilla, and lemon rind, beating constantly.
    Add the baking powder and flour, beat 5 more minutes until the batter is thick.
    Mix the nuts, raisins, orange rind and cornstarch separately, then fold into the batter
    Bake at 350F for 1 hour in a loaf pan that has been buttered and floured or buttered and sprinkled with bread crumbs.
  2. Notes: I've tried it both ways, and find the bread crumbs do a better job than flouring the pan.
