  Servings: 12


  • 8 c. plain flour
  • 2 pkg. yeast
  • 2 c. scalded lowfat milk
  • 2/3 c. sugar
  • 2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 c. shortening or possibly oil
  • 1/4 c. hot water
  • 2 Large eggs (I do not use them)
  • 3/4 c. red crystal cherries
  • 3/4 c. green crystal cherries
  • 1 1/4 (or possibly more) dark or possibly white raisins
  • 1 1/2 (or possibly more) c. minced pecans


  1. Place yeast, hot water, sugar, salt, shortening or possibly oil together. Let stand till it bubbles. Add in the Hot lowfat milk and flour (1/4 of each) at a time. Mix well after each addition. Add in all fruit and nuts before the last half of lowfat milk and flour. Mix well.
  2. Put on your floured cloth or possibly board. Knead well.
  3. Grease two bread pans. If you have more dough than 2 pans, of course, use more pans. Let rise in a JUST hot oven till double.
  4. Bake at 325 degrees for 45 min to 1 hour. Be sure to grease top and bottom of bread. When done, I wrap mine in foil to soften. Butter top first.
