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


  1. Make 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.
  2. Bake 350* until golden brown or until bread test says it done.
  3. Turn 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.
  4. I'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.
