Fruit Yeast Bread

Bonnie Beck


I made this bread when I worked part-time for Health food store, on my mountain, while raising my kids and going to college. It was always a sell out!

It's easy and quick.

How to Make Fruit Yeast Bread


  • 1Make your bread dough. Let it rise till double in size. Punch it down. Soak your dried fruit a wee bit or don't..doesn't really matter. It's good both ways.

    Roll dough out not too thin. Spread a little bit of butter, sprinkle some sugar, and spread the dried fruit evenly. Roll up and tighten ends.

    Lightly butter a loaf pan. Put the dough in and let it raise till double in size.
  • 2Bake 350* until golden brown or until bread test says it done.
  • 3Turn out on rack on it's side to cool.

    Dust with powdered sugar or drizzle a glaze on top.

    Serve with cream cheese, plain, clotted cream or devonshire cream.

    This also makes a wonderful bread pudding.
  • 4I'd give you my bread recipe, but somehow saying 6 hand fulls of flour (more or less), 2 thick slices of butter, 1 cake yeast, sugar, salt, scolded milk or half and half just isn't going to cut it for most. One day I will have to measure it all out.

    The one I posted for the Pirukad is close. That one I measured out.
