If you are looking for the perfect loaf of bread for Christmas Eve, then look no further. It is as delicate as the Virgin mother's love, and rich as the Three Kings treasures.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium bowl, sift together 2 1/2 cups flour and 2 teaspoons baking powder. Set aside. In large mixing bow, cream 2 cups butter with 2 cups granulated sugar. Seperate 6 eggs; set whites aside. Add egg yolks to butter misture one at a time, beating after each addition. Gradually add flour mixture and 1/2 cup dark raisins, 1/2 cup golden raisins, and 1/2 cup dried cranberries, alternating flour and dried fruit, stirring well after each addition. Beat egg whites and fold into dough. Pour batter into greased and floured 9X5-inch loaf pan; bake for 45 minutes.
Yield: 1 loaf
"We three Kings of orient are bearing gifts we traverse afar, field and fountain, moor and mountain following yonder star."
